    I’ve received one of those messages from Google Search Console regarding this new site which is only one page. https://felanmarine.com.au
    This is a screenshot of the message:

    Text too small to read: Body text is set to 16px
    Clickable elements too close together: There is no navigation and the only clickable element is the SEND button on the form.
    Content wider than screen: Looks ok on testing that I’ve done. Maybe I’ve overlooked something.

    When I received the first report I thought it was just one of those Google console things that happens with new sites so when I responded that the issues had been fixed I thought it would be ok. Failed validation.

    Any thoughts guys?


    Hey mediaapps,

    They seems to be sending that to almost every site owner, as it’s not theme or platform dependent. Are there any elements on your site which are too small to read, too close together, or wider than the screen? If not, then you can ignore those messages.

    Best regards,


    When it comes to things like SEO Google usually knows what they’re talking about as we all know. It’s frustrating that this is happening. Occasionally I have had fails on other websites but when I implement the recommendations the issue is fixed.

    This is the first time that I haven’t been able to resolve this.



    Thanks for the update. I’m sure Google is doing a great job, but we can’t really fix this for you unless we know which elements are the problem on your actual site.

    Best regards,

    Thank you for the update.

    clickable elements too close

    It might be referring to the links below the contact form. Try to add this css code to create more space between the contact form button and the links below.

    #top .avia_ajax_form .av-google-badge-message {
        padding: 30px 0 0 0;
        line-height: 1.8em;

    We also increased the line height to separate the links even more.

    Best regards,


    I added that code. Let’s see what happens after the next crawl. Thank you.



    Thanks for the update. We’ll leave this thread open for you.

    Best regards,
