Search Engine Optimization

I have 37 posts to my site, but GSC only shows that I have 10 "pages" that are moblie friendly.

Some are actual pages (like my home page), others are posts, and one is li

Ok - I think I've sorted this out. After searching multiple sources I found the most consistent answer to be that Google simply does not test full websites for mobile usability.

They test a sampling of pages, posts, images, etc. and if they all pass (showing as valid) Google basically just views it as your site bing mobile friendly.

So we don't need to worry that not all pages are listed under "valid." As long as none of them have errors we are gtg.

Great question and great answer.

Hey Kat,

Without knowing the EXACT prompts you are receiving we could only guessing... and that might take writing nearly a book to cover.

In my case, it was the size of font used. Once I doubled the size, Google was a happy camper.

There should be SOMETHING in your analytics to show you WHAT exactly is their issue with your pages and/or posts.

Perhaps one of Divi's own guides can direct you on what to do. See screen print below...

Hope you find this helpful.

Thank you for the response and sorry for my delayed reply!

There are no reasons that I can find in GSC - it doesn't show any pages with errors, it simply only shows a small number of pages as "valid" ... *shrug* ... screenshot is attached. Maybe I'm missing something as I'm no expert when it comes to GSC

Today it's actually showing 15 valid pages instead of 10, so that's something.

Based on your notes, I searched the ideal font size for mobile devices and found that 16 is preferred, but mine was set to 14. So I've updated that, cleared my cached and resubmitted my sitemap to GSC - hopefully that will take care of it!

Hey Kat,

From your screen print... you need to click until one more time to see all 15 pages listed separately and then click to find the error for each one.

They MAY all be the same cause, but you won't know until you click down further to find the individual pages.

I know that Google Analytics can be daunting at times and it is NOT user-friendly... so hang in there and look for the link to click on... I would start with the text link "Valid" under "Status".

As to how to increase your font size... what I have ALWAYS done is Google searched my theme's name and, searched something like....
increase font size site wide using [theme name goes here]
and if I could not find ANYTHING, then I would reach out to my theme developer's support staff for help.

If all else fails, you could use a plugin... but why would you add yet another plugin if you don't have to. Thus why I suggest trying my first two suggestions first.

If search console shows a "click" is there a way to see which link it was? Most of my pages have many links.

If you are working with programs through an affiliate network, most of them offer a chance to add a click ref to your link. You just use the link builder to create the link. I know we have it on Awin.com and it is very easy to do. That way you can give every link a click ref ID if you wish.

One more reason to work with networks over Amazon.....

Thanks!

do you have google analytics? I believe this allows you to see what pages were viewed and what links where used. if you mean the affiliate links you may be able to see which ones where clicked through your affiliate dashboard

Thank you Justing, I will see if Google Analytics can tell me!
