Why is this important?

It's a red flag when a URL yield no visits from mobile devices as it may point to a problem with how the page performs in mobile search results.

Thus, it's entirely possible that one or both of these other alerts may have been set off as well.

What does the Optimization check?

The alert will be activated for any internal URL which hasn't received any mobile clicks from organic searches.

The analysis for this data is pulled from the Google Search Console via its API, considering the Property connected and the date range selected.

Why is this Optimization marked 'Potential Issue'?

This alert is categorized under 'Potential Issue', meaning that currently, it may not be impacting the website, but it's a situation that necessitates review since it might lead to complications down the line.
