Greetings 3.5 readers.
I don’t remember exactly when, but at some point in the last year, those fine folks at Google announced that websites that are mobile friendly would be, and I’m not quite sure how to explain this, given more consideration I guess in web hits.
There are probably nerdmeisters that can explain this better but ultimately, if you have a post about how to kick a yeti in the face and I have a post about to kick a yeti in the face and some schmuck out in Timbuktu does a web search for “How to Kick a Yeti in the Face” – your website is more likely to come up higher in said schmuck’s search results if yours is mobile friendly and mine is not.
What’s that? You want to know if your website is user friendly but you don’t know who to find out?
You are in luck, reader.
Simply enter your URL and it well tell you if your site is mobile friendly or not.
Alas, it turns out that my fine website, bookshelfbattle.com is not considered mobile friendly at all.
If anything, it is mobile anti-social.
So I suppose at some point down the road I will take the plunge and find a new theme.
I worry about that. I feel like the baseball player that doesn’t want to change his smelly underpants in the bottom of the ninth because wearing smelly underpants has helped him win so far so why change anything?
But I suppose if hits are at stake I must do what I can to get those sweet, sweet web hits.
The last thing I need is for some OTHER jackass with a website about being a magic bookshelf caretaking yeti fighter with an alien buddy stealing MY web hits.
