  18. 18. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti Today I’ll share how to win SEO 
 in a mobile first Index Is having a mobile site enough to be mobile first ready? How to verify if your site is really mobile first ready? How to do a mobile vs. desktop parity audit? How can you identify further mobile targeted opportunities? #mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti
  19. 19. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti Wait… is not having a mobile site enough to be mobile first ready? #mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti
  20. 20. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @oraintihttps://search.google.com/test/mobile-friendly Having a mobile Website is just the base Not really Mobile Friendly
  21. 21. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @oraintiGoogle Search Console Mobile Usability As well as complying with Mobile usability best practices
  22. 22. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti Some have been addressed with updates, 
 like avoiding full mobile screen pop-ups https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2016/08/helping-users-easily-access-content-on.html Mobile pop-ups update
  23. 23. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @oraintihttps://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/ Having a fast mobile Web speed, 
 which is a ranking factor since July 2018
  24. 24. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @oraintihttps://developers.google.com/search/mobile-sites/mobile-first-indexing#best-practices Additionally, you’ll need to do validations and changes based on your mobile Web configuration
  25. 25. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti No change is needed for responsive sites, 
 as content is the same for mobile & desktop
  26. 26. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti This also happens with canonical AMP, 
 since the content is the same again https://search.google.com/test/amp
  27. 27. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti Non-canonical AMP is not indexed, so you’ll need to assess the original Mobile site INDEXABLE MOBILE VERSION NON- INDEXABLE AMP VERSION
  28. 28. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti Remember non- canonical AMP will be used for speed, but is not a replacement of your own mobile site https://www.seroundtable.com/amp-desktop-mobile-google-index-24568.html
  29. 29. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti Change might be needed with dynamic sites, since HTML of mobile & desktop is different
  30. 30. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti Something similar happens w/ independent mobile sites with separate URLs
  31. 31. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti It’s then critical to especially validate dynamic serving & independent mobile sites https://www.seroundtable.com/google-mobile-first-indexing-half-26846.html
  32. 32. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti What to validate to check if your site is Mobile First ready then? #mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti
  33. 33. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti It’s about mobile vs desktop Web parity 
 in technical and content optimization https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2019/05/mobile-first-indexing-by-default-for.html
  34. 34. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti >Desktop Mobile Your mobile site should also feature the relevant content and links of desktop
  35. 35. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti Hiding the content in your mobile pages 
 with styles should be ok as long as it is in the HTML
  36. 36. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti Mobile Desktop = The metadata should be equivalent 
 across both versions of your site too
  37. 37. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti Mobile Desktop = Structured data should also be present on both desktop as well as Mobile HTMLs https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool
  38. 38. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti Mobile Desktop International sites should add hreflang in mobile pages too, besides in desktop https://developers.google.com/search/mobile-sites/mobile-seo/separate-urls
  39. 39. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti VS Independent mobile sites should keep consistency with the m-dot robots.txt https://developers.google.com/search/mobile-sites/mobile-seo/separate-urls
  40. 40. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti As well as keep the canonicalization configuration, pointing to the desktop URLs https://developers.google.com/search/mobile-sites/mobile-seo/separate-urls
  41. 41. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti Mobile Desktop So hreflang annotations in mobile pages should go to mobile URLs as the alternates https://developers.google.com/search/mobile-sites/mobile-seo/separate-urls
  42. 42. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti Mobile Desktop But you don’t need to change the mobile 
 rel alternate & canonical tags logic https://developers.google.com/search/mobile-sites/mobile-seo/separate-urls
  43. 43. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti Correct Incorrect For example, hreflang in this case is correct, 
 but the canonicalization is not
  44. 44. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti You’ll need to also register the independent mobile site in the Search Console to monitor its activity Google Search Console
  45. 45. #mobilefirstchecklist at #smxlondon by @aleyda from @orainti#mobilefirstseo at #wceu by @aleyda from @orainti This is why Google doesn’t recommend to use independent mobile sites anymore https://webmasters.googleblog.com/2019/05/mobile-first-indexing-by-default-for.html
