ApplianceJunk.com now has it's own mobile version
« on: April 29, 2015, 08:38:45 PM »
Google recently made some changes as to how websites would be ranked for mobile searches.
Long story short a site has to pass the Google Mobile-Friendly Test page for best results.

https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/

Having the tapatalk app installed on our server was not good enough for our site to pass the Google Mobile-Friendly Test as it's considered a app and not a mobile friendly theme.

So today after much work I have installed a dedicated mobile friendly theme for our site and now we pass the Google Mobile-Friendly Test. :)

If you are viewing our site with a mobile device you should automatically be directed to our mobile version. Well viewing the mobile version you can click a button on the bottom that will take you to the full site too.

I believe this is just the start of a great thing because unlike with tapatalk I now have full control over customizing the mobile version of our site.

At this time we will continue to use the tapatalk app too, but as the mobile version of our site evolves I may end up dropping tapatalk.

Time will tell...

Please let me know if you have any questions or what you think of our mobile site.

Thanks,

I now added a "Mobile Site" link to the bottom of our full site.

So if you get stuck on our full site on your mobile device and want to switch back just scroll to the button of our full site and click on the "Mobile Site" link.

Same if you get stuck on our mobile site and want the full site, just scroll towards the bottom and click on the full site button.

Did not think I would disable tapatalk this soon, but found tapatalk was causing some conflicts with our google mobile indexing so Tapatalk has been removed from our servers.

But your mobile device should pick up our new mobile site without any special app. If it does not simply scroll to the bottom of our full site and click on the "Mobile Site" link.

Well that's enough work on this for one night. ;)
