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!
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.
Open your smartphone Messages app.
Using your smartphone, open any of your webpages with your favorite web browser.
Copy your webpage name as it appears on your web browser window.
Paste the webpage name to your smartphone Messages app.
Send yourself a Message with a link to your webpage.
If the Messages App ONLY SHOWS YOUR WEBPAGE NAME, this specific webpage is NOT CONFIGURE to fully exploit Open Graph Protocol Meta Tags.
Repeat Steps 4-5 but instead, send yourself a message with a link to this webpage.
Do 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.
After a mobile user visits your website and wants to store your contact information for future reference, they have several options:
They can create a "Bookmark" of your webpage on their favorite web browser app.
They can manually type your contact information on their smartphone Contacts app.
They 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 be added to any smartphone home screen and behave like a web application.
Open any of your web pages with the WEB BROWSER PROVIDED by the operating system (i.e. Chrome for Android, or Safari for IOS).
Tap the MENU ICON (3 vertical dots in upper right-hand corner of the screen).
Tap Add to Home Screen.
Tap Add to create a "Bookmark" of your web page on your Android Smartphone or Tablet Home Screen.
Tap the web browser Share Icon at the bottom of the screen.
Tap the Add to Home Screen feature.
Tap Add to create a BOOKMARK of your web page on your iPhone or iPad Home Screen.
⚠️If the BOOKMARK shows a screenshot of your web page, your webpage IS NOT CONFIGURED to behave like a Web Application by not using your company logo as Apple Touch Icons.
⚠️If the BOOKMARK shows a long name, your webpage IS NOT CONFIGURED with an apple-mobile-web-app-title meta tag.
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?
✔Visit my Digital Business Card to see how the HTML links AUTOMATICALLY OPEN the corresponding app and minimize user interactions on Address, Messages, Mail, and Telephone HTML Links.
❓Are your webpages configure to exploit ONE CLICK or TAP access to HTML Links to minimize user interactions.
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.
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?
✔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.

Both the Mobile and Desktop versions have different Speed Index Scores. In case you are wondering, all of my webpages achieve a Speed Index Score of 0.3 seconds that very few websites can achieve.
If your webpages failed any of the test, encourage you to contact your web developer and ask them to correct the situation. Hopefully they will not charge you for their oversight!
