It will give you a a quick rundown of the issues you should take to your website developer.
Optimize the mobile user’s experience
More than 70% of web traffic comes from a mobile device, and if your website or e-commerce store doesn’t look great or perform well, you’re going to lose potential customers. Google Search Console’s Mobile-Friendly Tester will give you tips to improve how your content is presented to the handheld world.
Structure data for rich results
Search engines provide enhanced search results on sites with structured data, or schema markup. Schema adds context to a search result and can help your site appear in a prominent position on the results page. Adding this markup to your website is more advanced, but will make a difference in getting your content to the right people.
