Making Your Site More Mobile Friendly for Mobile Browsers

mobileA good number of ISM (iPhoneSocialMedia) readers have their own websites/blogs and this post is to discuss the importance and means of making your site more mobile friendly.

The most recent studies suggest that 1.6% of all USA website usage is done from a mobile phone. WOW!!! 1.6% is a huge number considering the competition of endless numbers of corporate America employees who spend all day on the internet from their desktop computers. 76% of adults say they have done a Google search from a mobile phone at least once! If you have a website or blog it has become imperative that you make your site mobile friendly.

If you are utilizing WordPress (the most popular website/blog hosting service online) then this process can be quite painless. The most popular plugins available are WPTouch iPhone Theme and WordPress Mobile Pack. The WPTouch iPhone theme is of course designed to make your site appear more like an iPhone app on mobile browsers. Both plugins allow a great deal of customization including widgets, RSS, pages, and theme options.

If you are using something other than WordPress I suggest contacting you web developer and emphasizing the importance of getting your site up to mobile standards!
