With Google's mobilegeddon done and in full effect another search engine giant has started showing signs of crossing over. Bing has recently released a tag for web links to allow users to know if they are mobile responsive or not.

In the coming months, Bing will be adding mobile-responsive to its factors for rank position but, unlike Google, relevance will always come first.

There are a couple of factors that a website must meet to be considered mobile responsive:

• Navigation – this means that the website becomes touchscreen friendly with calls to action being easy to use.

• Readability – this means that people should be able to read the text without the need for zooming in or having to scroll left and right to read your content.

• Scrolling – the site fits the screen of any mobile device whether it portrait or landscape.

• Compatibility – this means that the user can open your site on a mobile device. This means that your website navigation becomes responsive for a user to use and navigate and all the content is usable on this device.

Bing will also follow suit with Google and introduce a mobile test to assess if your website is responsive on mobile devices.
