Bing Launches Their Mobile-Friendly Testing Tool

Bing Mobile Friendliness Test Tool
Bing announced the release of their mobile friendliness test tool today. This was promised to us back in May 2015, when Bing told us they were working on a mobile-friendly Bing ranking algorithm.

The tool evaluates a page to check if it is mobile-friendly based on these criteria:

  • Viewport and Zoom control configuration
  • Width of page content
  • Readability of text on the page
  • Spacing of links and other elements on the page
  • Use of incompatible plug-ins.

Here is a screen shot of the tool in action. As you can see, it shows a preview of our site,, on the right side:
