How do you know if your website provides the best Mobile User Experience (UX) to your visitors?

If you are not associated with the web design industry, most likely YOU DO NOT HAVE A CLUE how to answer this question!

On a weekly basis, I come across websites that are not providing the absolute best Mobile User Experience (UX) to their website visitors because the developer did not properly configure these web interfaces for accessibility and efficiency to optimize on-the-go interactions!

The objective of this webpage is to provide anyone without specialized knowledge in the web design industry, with a simple easy to follow instructions CHECKLIST, that allows them TO VERIFY if their website is providing the best Mobile User Experience (UX) to their website visitors! If your website was improperly configured, it is up to you to contact your web developer and ask them to correct these issues!

Mobile Feature #1 - Open Graph Protocol Meta Tags

Most businesses already have a social media presence however, some websites DO NOT EXPLOIT the Open Graph Protocol Meta Tags that makes the web content stand out when a web page is shared on Facebook, Messaging, Twitter, and other social media apps.

Verification Instructions

1Open your smartphone Messages app.

2Using your smartphone, open any of your webpages with your favorite web browser.

3Copy your webpage name as it appears on your web browser window.

4Paste the webpage name to your smartphone Messages app.

5Send yourself a Message with a link to your webpage.

What to look for

6If the Messages App ONLY SHOWS YOUR WEBPAGE NAME, this specific webpage is NOT CONFIGURE to fully exploit Open Graph Protocol Meta Tags.

7Repeat Steps 4-5 but instead, send yourself a message with a link to this webpage.

8Do you see the difference? When anyone shares a link of to any of my webpages on social media, which website is more likely to get more traffic?

Here is an example of the Open Graph Protocol Meta Tags that I use on this webpage. EVERY WEBPAGE needs to be configured with similar Open Graph Protocol Meta Tags containing different content and images that are relevant to each individual webpage!

Are your webpages configured to exploit the Open Graph Protocol Meta Tags.

Mobile Feature #2 - Add to Home Screen

After a mobile user visits your website and wants to store your contact information for future reference, they have several options:

1They can create a "Bookmark" of your webpage on their favorite web browser app.

2They can manually type your contact information on their smartphone Contacts app.

3They can create a "Bookmark" of your webpage on their smartphone Home Screen. The vast majority of mobile users prefer this location because ONE TAP to the Apple Touch Icon, gives them access to the entire website.

This HTML ONLY configuration allows webpages to behave like a Mobile Web App

Mobile Feature #3 - One Click/Tap Access to Address, Email, Messages and Telephone HTML Links

Are your web pages showing all of your business address and other contact information in TEXT FORMAT forcing your website visitors to manually type the information on their Smartphone Address, Email, Maps, and Messages apps?

Verification Instructions

What to look for

Are your webpages configure to exploit ONE CLICK or TAP access to HTML Links to minimize user interactions.

Mobile Feature #4 - QR Codes and Digital Business Cards

QR codes date back to 1994, but they gained prominence in 2020 as businesses around the globe adapted to a "contactless" way to display content to customers and prevent the spread of COVID-19. You can create a FREE QR CODE that references your social media page or webpage.

Does your website use QR Codes?

Have you ever been in a situation where someone asked you for your business card but, YOU DID NOT HAVE ANY WITH YOU?

If 92.4% of internet users access the Web via their smartphones, why not use a Digital Business Card that is referenced by QR codes and eliminate the expense of ordering traditional paper business cards for you and your employees?

Your smartphone Locked Screen is the perfect location to display a QR code

Both Android and IOS devices allow users to customize their smartphones with multiple "Lock Screens" and switch between them very easily!

Even if I am only wearing my Apple ⌚ Watch, I am always ready to exchange my digital business card with any prospective client.
