How to Make your WordPress Blog More Mobile-Friendly
WordPress is a blogging platform that allows its users to add plugins to create a unique blogging webpage. There are over 53 million websites that are built on the WordPress platform and there are over 100,000 new signups every day. WordPress in itself is actually quite mobile friendly, but how do you get a slick mobile-friendly version of your site to attract more people to your site? WPTouch is a great plugin to give your WordPress site a mobile presence!
With WPTouch, you can customize the look and feel of your mobile site without editing any code. Simply upload the plugin into WordPress and set the settings to fit with the theme of your website. That’s it! You can also create custom icons and upload them into WPTouch to create a truly custom look to your mobile site! WPTouch is compatible with all mobile browsers and with WPTouch Pro, you will even be compatible with IPad.
Why is it so important to have a mobile version of your website? More and more people are buying smartphones and tablets, and less are logging onto their desktops. People want to be able to pull up a website on their mobile device and be able to read blogs, buy products, and easily write reviews and comments. More website views equals more lead generation and, in turn, leads to more sales! Who doesn’t want more sales?
We have found that, from using the plugin ourselves, that it has increased our blog readership by almost 20%. WPTouch makes reading a WordPress blog so much easier and faster. People are looking for fast these days.
To make social sharing easy and fast for your mobile readers, we suggest pairing your WPTouch plugin with Social Share 2.0- Social Bookmarks. Social Share 2.0- Social Bookmarks shows up on your mobile posts, while many others do not. You want your readers to be able to share your content easily.
