I've been using Genesis themes for a while, and ever since Google's Mobile Friendly test came out, my pages were fine. As one would expect, given the responsive designs from Genesis.
Suddenly, in February, I started getting messages from Webmaster Tools that some my pages are not mobile friendly. Now, I hadn't changed anything around that time, so I'm guessing Google changed their rules, and I'm very frustrated with them. But unfortunately, they do whatever they want, however badly, and all we can do is try to work around them. The two errors it gives are "content wider than screen" and "Links too close together". And for details, you are told to go to their PageSpeed test.
That test says:
Size tap targets appropriately
Some of the links/buttons on your webpage may be too small for a user to easily tap on a touchscreen. Consider making these tap targets larger to provide a better user experience.
The following tap targets are close to other nearby tap targets and may need additional spacing around them.
The tap target Cocktails and 6 others are close to other tap targets.
The tap target Facebook and 2 others are close to other tap targets.
The tap target Contact and 1 others are close to other tap targets.
One of those is a Genesis menu element, and they look a good mile apart on my phone, so I don't know what Google's problem is. Any suggestions?
The second error:
Size content to viewport
The page content is too wide for the viewport, forcing the user to scroll horizontally. Size the page content to the viewport to provide a better user experience.
The page content is 763 CSS pixels wide, but the viewport is only 320 CSS pixels wide. The following elements fall outside the viewport:
The element <iframe id="aswift_0" name="aswift_0"> falls outside the viewport.
That "element" is from an ad, I believe. Anybody know how to use CSS to force the ad to stay contained within the responsive div? It's not Google Adsense, so I can tinker with it without breaking terms... or I may have to beg the ad provider to find a solution.http://mixthatdrink.comMay 11, 2015 at 2:32 am #151663
I'm getting a Pagespeed Insights message advising me my site isn't Mobile Frindly. I use Genesis Sample Theme as a child theme.

Configure the viewport
Your page does not have a viewport specified. This causes mobile devices to render your page as it would appear on a desktop browser, scaling it down to fit on a mobile screen. Configure a viewport to allow your page to render properly on all devices.

I'm confused, I bought Genesis a couple of weeks ago after reading it was mobile responsive...but it's not 'mobile friendly'?
I;d be grateful if anyone could advise me how to fix this. Thank you!May 11, 2015 at 3:13 am #151666
