So I'm not one for writing long exhaustive blog posts like many on this forum, no, I prefer to do it the easy way and just record a simple video...with little or no editing, so here goes.

I use this technique ALL the time and finally decided to share this simple technique. Quite simply, you can use Google Chrome to view any website / serp as if you were using a mobile phone, as I do mostly local SEO I use this technique to view local serps and GMB profiles.


I hope the community find this as useful as I do, any questions then please just let me know.

Thanks

Andy, that's SO COOL! Look forward to your other ideas/hacks. I like the video format--super simple. I already tested your method and it worked instantly w/ the CTRL + F5.

Thanks Megan, no problem..trying to keep these as quick/simple as possible. Yeah, the ctrl/f5 works a charm, just wish I'd done it the first time! ;)

...I've created another masterpiece but think I'll save it for next week.

Cheers
