Have you ever wondered how Google views your site? Google now lets you see how they index your pages.
The Fetch as Google feature is as smart as it is powerful. The Fetch as Google feature has a toggle that lets you specify the device type. This means that you can see how Google views your site on a desktop and a mobile device.
Help! Google Views My Site Differently!
Don’t be alarmed. It doesn’t need to. The first thing you need to ask yourself is if the differences actually matter. Does it matter what font Google uses to index your site? Not really. Nor does it matter if the social media sharing widget showed up. Google isn’t going to share your page to Facebook.
It’s also possible that the platform that runs your creates another version of your site specifically for search engines. This is cloaking in the world of SEO. It’s a bad practice that some black-hat SEO companies use. It is a violation of Google’s Webmaster Guidelines and can get your site removed from Google’s index. Don’t do it. Treat Google just like you would treat a regular person and you will see positive results.
Thank you and keep building your brand.
