Google Says Landscape Orientation For Web Sites Does Not Matter For SEO

Google’s John Mueller said that “there is no effect in regard to SEO for Google” when it comes to if a site or page supports landscape orientation. Yes, it does matter if the page is mobile-friendly and has content on mobile-first indexing, but if you orient your phone sideways, it doesn’t matter.

John said this on Twitter:

There is no effect in regard to SEO for Google.

I never heard anyone ask this before, so this was an interesting question for me.

Do you think Google should care about a page that does not render great when you turn your phone sideways?
