We know that it matters to Google and your SEO if your site is mobile friendly. But what about a landscape orientation of your website, or rather, lack of?

“What will happen if my website does not support landscape mode in mobile device? How [does] Google see that?”

This unique question was asked on Twitter to Google’s John Mueller. I’ve never heard anyone ever even talk about this so I was really curious and followed the thread.

“There is no effect in regard to SEO for Google”

So, there you have it. If your site isn’t responsive or optimized for landscape orientation, it won’t affect your SEO.

The real question is, would you want it to?
