Google has announced they finally released the mobile-friendly test API, something webmasters have been asking for since the test has came out in November 2014.

Google said "the Mobile-Friendly Test API lets you test URLs using automated tools." "The API method runs all tests, and returns the same information - including a list of the blocked URLs - as the manual test," Google added.

John Mueller from Google penned the announcement adding "we hope this API makes it easier to check your pages for mobile-friendliness and to get any such issues resolved faster."

Here is a sample output of the API results:

The test results output currently include:

  • MOBILE_FRIENDLY_TEST_RESULT_UNSPECIFIED Internal error when running this test. Please try running the test again.
  • MOBILE_FRIENDLY The page is mobile friendly.
  • NOT_MOBILE_FRIENDLY The page is not mobile friendly.
