My site is currently not mobile friendly but when I view my site on a mobile device I am seeing 
“Make page mobile-friendly”

Is there a way in analytics to see how often users are utilizing this feature?

Hi phdm3,


Since this is happening in the browser (like a bookmark) and not on the page, then there is no native way to track it.  You could do a convoluted implementation of hit level custom dimensions that let you know when your elements were stripped out (which is what is happening as the browser enters reader mode) but why?  I think it's more useful to look at your audience>>mobile reports to see how many folks are exposed to this.  For many years, more than half of search happens on mobile. Time to plan for a new, responsive site.  Smiley Happy
