Cutcompcosts Is Now Fully Mobile Compliant
Over two weeks ago, Google informed us (Cutcompcosts) that we are not mobile-compliant. As I have a heavy IT background, that seemed to be highly unacceptable.
—We are having a few mobile rendering problems, which is to be expected with a new software system. Hang in there, it will look spiffy soon.
This is the message we received from Google. It sounds serious. I think it was more of a warning shot across the bow, so to speak.

Google systems have tested 1,100 pages from your site and found that 100% of them have critical mobile usability errors. The errors on these 1,100 pages severely affect how mobile users are able to experience your website. These pages will not be seen as mobile-friendly by Google Search, and will therefore be displayed and ranked appropriately for smartphone users.
<We went big on the mobile error rate.>

Over the weekend, I actually analyzed the Cutcompcosts inbound traffic. The inbound traffic for mobile devices was over 20%. I then realized we had reached the 80/20 rule. (Pareto Principle)
Cutcompcosts is now fully mobile compliant. Feel free to use us on your choice of a mobile device. The landing page is actually the blog and not the landing page for desktops or laptops.
If you swipe to the right part of your mobile, the index to the other pages of the website is there.
The theme is bland, but the blander it is, the easier it will be to use, and the faster it will render on your mobile device.
If for some reason, you have any difficulties, please let us know ASAP. We use page-loading accelerators that may interfere with your specific mobile device’s page rendering if not excluded from the accelerator.
I uploaded over 110 exclusions to the accelerator last night. Accelerators should recognize your mobile device. There are so many mobile devices that I am sure we left one or two out of the mix.
Our weekly newsletter is next up for mobile compliance.
