Late on Thursday, August 3, 2017, Google rolled out a new feature right at the top of search results for “mobile friendly test” queries.
Now if you search for Mobile Friendly Test, you’ll see the neat new feature. The new addition saves people like myself a step since we no longer have to click through to their mobile friendly test page to enter a URL to test.
This is what the new feature looks like:
This is just the latest step in the journey Google is making towards preparing webmasters for the switch to the Mobile First Index.
As a note, this tool is also a great way to get a page crawled which you do not have access to. Assuming the page is indeed mobile friendly, simply run the mobile friendly test and once Google analyzes it, click submit to Google and the page is usually crawled and re-indexed in moments.
If you like or dislike the new feature and feel obliged to do so, please feel free to comment below.
