Search a customer site that has had problems with mobile usability problems in the Google search console.
The specific topics are:
- Selectable items too close together
- Text too small to read
and with a little less frequency:
- Content wider than the screen
When I live test Any of the URLs that have failed, the live test reports "The page is compatible with mobile devices".
If I to inspect any of the URLs and then click See page tracked You can reach the more information tab where it is shown (for example) that resources 67/88 could not be loaded. Most are listed as Other error.
Two of today's pages are Redirection error, and both from cloudfront.net (caching error?)
This list is mostly images / fonts, but almost always the css file is on that list, which could cause these problems.
The images are served from the cloudfront and the web server. Css is from the cloud. The sources are cloudfront / google.
It even fails in google sources:
In March, there were more than 300 pages with these problems, but now they are around ~ 20.
Here is the graph for Selectable items too close together:
Initially, I thought it was happening on pages with more resources than others, but each new test seems to be a different set of pages.
I think these are the same problems as: The Google Search Console sends an email message "A new usability problem was detected on the mobile device", but the live test shows "The page is compatible with mobile devices "
I just try to provide more data to see if there is a solution for this.
