Today Google announced a new feature that will let search users see whether or not the site they’re about to click on is “mobile-friendly.”

Now, you’re probably asking “what does mobile-friendly mean?”

Well, Google says that a site needs to meet the following criteria in order to be labeled as mobile-friendly:

  • Avoids software that is not compatible with mobile devices (i.e. Flash)

  • Text is easily readable without needing to be zoomed in

  • Content is sized to fit your screen so that your users don’t have to scroll horizontally or zoom

  • Links are displayed in a way that can be easily clicked on
