As of Tuesday, April 21, 2015, mobile search results on Google favor mobile-friendly websites.

Do you want to know if your WordPress (or other) website is mobile-friendly?

Google has a simple test for this:

If Google says, “Awesome! This page is mobile-friendly,” you’re in good shape. Congratulations! You should buy a t-shirt that says, “I survived Mobigeddon!”

Most WordPress blogs are probably mobile-friendly. If you’re using an outdated WordPress theme, that could be an issue. If so, check out this WordPress article.

If your website isn’t mobile-friendly and it’s not due to an outdated WordPress theme, try exploring the resources on Google’s mobile-friendly test page.
