Thoughts, information and reflections about technology

You might want to recheck your site’s mobile readiness with Google for differences in Blogger, Google Analytics and Adsense page views even if you passed previously.

I was doing a monthly review of a client’s site. As of the end of April 2015, Google is placing a heavy emphasis on the mobile friendliness of the your site.

I checked this site at the beginning of April. It is a Joomla 3.4.x site. I had to remove the media and templates folders from robots.txt.  After doing that, Google reported that the site was mobile friendly.

However, when I checked Google’s webmaster tools this month, it said that it was not mobile friendly. It was showing a number of blocked resources all in the media and templates folders. I checked the robots.txt tool in webmaster tools and it showed that those folders were allowed.

As of this posting, I am trying to get a handle on exactly why the readiness tool shows the resources as blocked while webmaster tools shows the resources as allowed.

UPDATE – SOLVED – I had previously just remarked out the images and templates folders with a ‘#’.   That worked before. However, now you have to actually delete the lines.
