How to Get Mobile Friendly
The biggest killer to Mobile Friendly is your theme. Sadly, not all “responsive” themes are mobile friendly. Google judges on legibility of font, having all displayed items viewable in the viewport, and proximity of touchpoints. A properly configured quality fully responsive theme should do the job. My Theme Shop is known for their very fast, mobile friendly, fully responsive, SEO friendly themes. I personally have used their themes and can recommend them.

No matter which way you go, just make sure you don’t miss the deadline! April 21 is right around the corner. Get mobile friendly now!
