Mobile link [mobile_link] (Collections)

The mobile link [mobile_link] attribute lets you include a URL that links to a mobile-optimized version of your collection's landing page. This mobile version is the final landing page URL and will be shown to users on mobile devices, like phones or tablets.

When using this attribute, you’ll see additional reporting in Merchant Center for potential issues with your mobile-optimized landing pages. Creating a mobile-optimized site helps ensure that your collection appears correctly, and potentially loads faster, on mobile devices.
