    Content above the fold


    Hi all,

    My website is mobile friendly according to the google checker tool.

    However, at the moment the page link headings are taking up practically the whole screen above the fold and you have to scroll down to see the content. I am currently re-writing all the pages so that all the page link headings follow the usual convention for mobiles to have "menu" in place of the page link headings and all the links on the menu page. How much difference do you think this will make to a) userfriendliness and b) google ranking points?

    I'm a little worried because I think that the page link headings are quite interesting and good content in themselves.

    Cheers Chris

    I would imagine this would be fine, the page header is still content and not an ad box. I see no reason Google would punish your page for this.
