Submitter’s comments: Ownerterms.com is part of a ring of real estate web sites, all with similar designs and all with the same problems. The main page is too wide for my Macbook’s 1280×800 screen. Add the garish colors and oversized text, and you have a mess. Oh, and don’t get me started on the messy, outdated code.
Vincent Flanders’ comments: Obviously, if it doesn’t fit in our submitter’s 1280×800 screen, it isn’t going to fit in my 1200×1700 screen. The good news is you can read the text. The bad news is a couple of weeks ago, Google sent out emails to websites that weren’t mobile friendly and on their PageSpeed insights page they said this page “…may not pass Google’s Mobile-Friendly Test. Oh, the home page’s mobile score was 44/100 and the desktop score was 67/100. See the screenshot below for how the page shows up on mobile devices.Click the image to see the site as Google sees it.
I’m going to give you a warning you need to heed: If you don’t fix your websites to be mobile friendly in 2015, Google will come down HARD on your site’s search engine rankings.
