For today’s Tip Tuesday post, I want to introduce a tool to you that some of you may be familiar with, but you may not have visited for sometime: Google Browser Size.

Do you know that some people do not see your site as you see it?

Maybe they have to scroll back and forth, maybe the whole site does not show up in one frame – these are all things that a lot of real estate agents don’t think about. They see their site and think that’s how it always looks – but many times sites look different in Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, etc.

Google has a fabulously free tool called Google Browser Size. This is a great tool where you can plug in any URL (your website, your blog, etc) and it will show you the percentage of people that are able to view parts of your site.

According to Google:

“Google Browser Size is a visualization of browser window sizes for people who visit Google. For example, the “90%” contour means that 90% of people visiting Google have their browser window open to at least this size or larger.”

Here is an example:

Here’s a closer view of their example:

Imagine if only 60 or 80% of the people who view your site can actually view your entire site? I know from talking to many of you that this year is the year you will be revamping your site and taking a hard look at what you want on your site or your blog. I recommend that you use this tool to help you build a better site!

Have you used this tool before? I’d love your feedback – leave me a comment below!
