Mobile usability errors
« on: September 14, 2022, 09:51:04 am »
Hi, I have noticed that the ‘Mobile Usability’ report page in Google Search Console has just started to detect many errors when it has always had none. I have not made any changes.

Text too small to read - 2669 pages
Elements too close - 2669 pages
Graphic window not defined - 2669 pages

These are the kind of pages it is detecting as errors

https://www.website.com/fr/component/virtuemart/?language=fr-FR&keyword=&tmpl=raw&Itemid=&orderby=product_name&dir=ASC&start=1620&limit=20
https://www.website.com/fr/component/virtuemart/?limit=20&language=fr-FR&tmpl=raw&orderby=product_name&dir=ASC&start=540

However, Google's mobile test shows that they have mobile usability

These pages are not supposed to be indexed, is this correct? How can I fix this?

I am concerned it might affect SEO

You are reporting template/CSS-related issues here, not VirtueMart errors. Template updated? Server PHP updated?  URL?

Thank you both for your answers!

I will try the robots.txt solution and see how it goes.

Thanks again!
