Alternate Mobile Tag

Description

Mobile is important, now about 40% of Google Search coming from mobile device. Google is very serious about Mobile now.

Starting April 21, 2015 Google Search will be expanding its use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal.

Google described what you need to for your website. If your website has a separate m.domain.com type site this plugin will take care of Google’s recommendation, described here.

This is very simple plugin without any setting or configuartion. It assumes your desktop and mobile site url is same just mobile site is on a subdomain “m”, it adds the following tags

<link rel="alternate" media="only screen and (max-width: 640px)" href="http://m.example.com/page-1" >

<link rel="alternate" media="handheld" href="http://m.example.com/page-1" >

Reviews

overall fine

it needs some tweeking. for example it adds a <link rel=”alternate” media=”only screen and (max-width: 640px)” href=”http://m.yourdomain.com” > tag on the desktop site but you also need to add a canonical link to the associated mobile site, which this doesn’t suggest. a little tweeking will get this done however.

In installing this theme I also saw how many redundant canonical links there are in the wordpress header, quite amazing. I got rid of these by adding remove_action(‘wp_head’, ‘rel_canonical’); just before wp_head();
