How to fix Google Search Console Mobile Usability errors 1 Recommended Answer 12 Replies 13 Upvotes

Hello, 

I'm having issues on my website according to Google Search Console. I have 2 sites. 
Site #1: https://www.ayanohisaphoto.com
Site #2: https://www.ayanohisaweddingphoto.com

It says Site #1 has 28 issues and Site #2 has 1 issue on Mobile Usability. I checked those pages on my phone but couldn't tell what is causing the errors. So I just tried to validate again, and Google went through the validation process, and it looked like they got validated as No Issue once, but then it started to show the errors again. 

One thing I noticed is, when I click the pages with GSC errors from Google Search Console account, it goes to my regular site, not mobile site.

For example, GSC says this url has the Mobile Usability error, so I click on it from GSC account on my smart phone, as a new tab. https://www.ayanohisaphoto.com/p893482295/h9ca7731f

And it takes me to a desktop version of this page, not a mobile page. But my sites has mobile versions of all pages, so it shouldn't take it to the desktop version of the page. And it is weird that ONLY 28 pages on my site has this issue because my site has hundreds of pages with almost the same design. So if 28 pages really have the issue, other hundreds more pages should have the same issue but ONLY 28 has the issue according to GSC. 

Do you have any idea about how to fix this issue? Also, does this affect badly towards the SEO? 

Thanks in advance!!

That example page passes now

Sounds like some sort of transient issue, now resolved. 
 
As you see the validation is 'looking good' - which means that generally as Googel is testing most are passing the test now.
 
What ever issue is/was is resolved.

Hi Barry, 

Thank you for replying back to my post. 

Yes, you are right, the error on one of my websites seems to have passed the test and has no error anymore. However, my issue is that the error keeps coming back even after being resolved. 

Also the other site, still has 22 unresolved errors. It decreased from 28 but still has 22. 

Why is this happening when I made NO changes to my website? 

Thanks!

Suppose you might have intermittent loading issues. 
 
Havent seen it, but are you seeing any resources not loading. Perhaps with Other Erorr?

But the thing is, the pages with GSC mobile usability errors are not mobile pages. They are desktop version of the pages. But my website has mobile site, so it doesn't make sense that GSC detect mobile usability errors on desktop version of my pages. My mobile pages seem to be working well. Any idea?

Ha, well it its kinda expected they don't pass the test then :)
 
 
If they desktop pages, it doent matter if pass the test or not!
 
Google will just test pages it finds. There is no way really of marking pages saying 'this is a desktop page, don't bother testing it'. 
 
 
Although if may want to setup auto redirection to redirect mobile users to the mobile version. That way when the mobile user-agent tests the page, the desktop page will actully pass the test (because the test ends up running on the mobile page!) 
 
... suggests you dont have this auto redirection.

Auto redirection, like, if you open my site on your mobile device, it'll automatically take you to the mobile version of my site? Yes, it already does that. If I open my site or if you open my site on your mobile device, I'm sure it'll take you to the mobile version of the site. But somehow if I click on those pages from GSC mobile usability page, it takes me to the desktop version of the page. So weird. 

Do you think this affects SEO badly if I have those errors?

>You saw desktop site, because happened to open on a desktop browser! If open on a mobile, then get mobile site. 

Of course I checked on my mobile phone, not desktop browser! It still took me to the desktop version of the pages on my MOBILE PHONE! But you know what, when I checked now, it took me to the mobile version today. So I guess Google is trying to fix the crawling route. It definitely took me to desktop version on my mobile phone a few days ago. 

It still has 22 errors on my site, but it's decreasing from 28 errors, so I will keep monitoring it and see if it all gets resolved. 

Thanks!

You do have a small switch at the bottom of the page to switch to desktop pages. 
 
Maybe that sets a cookie or something. So for a while you where automatically taken to desktop because had clicked that link.
