As of today, world is going mobile, with many people using mobile phones on a daily basis, and a large user base searching on Google’s mobile search page. Here’re some troubleshooting tips to help ensure that your website / blog is properly crawled and indexed by Google Mobile:

  • Verify that your mobile site is indexed by Google, If doesn’t show up in Google mobile search even using ‘site:’ operator, check for following issues:
    • Googlebot may not be able to find your site; If you’ve not, just create a Mobile Sitemap and submit it using Google Webmaster Tools.
    • Googlebot may not be able to access your site, in this case, allow any User-agent including “Googlebot-Mobile” to access your site. Check whether User-agent header contains the string “Googlebot-Mobile”. You can use DNS Lookups to verify Googlebot
  • Verify that Google can recognize your mobile URLs; Googlebot-Mobile bot check URLs using “DTD (Doc Type Definition)” declaration. Check your mobile-friendly URLs’ DTD declaration is in appropriate mobile format such as XHTML Mobile or Compact HTML. More info on Mobile Webmaster Guidelines.
