It has been predicted that the number of mobile devices will exceed the number of people in the world by the end of 2014 and that 66% of mobile traffic will consist of smartphones by 2018. Those are some pretty crazy stats! With this increase in mobile device use, it becomes more and more important to have a mobile responsive site. Having a mobile responsive site creates a better user experience for mobile users and has been shown to increase traffic, decrease bounce rate (that means your readers are sticking around longer) and has been shown to increase page views.
Mobile responsive coding is now a standard feature with all of our designs. However, if you currently have a site that does not have mobile coding, you can visit our blog accessories shop and purchase the “mobile responsive coding” option and we’d be delighted to help get that added to your site for you.
Here are some visual examples of how adding mobile responsive coding to your site can make a huge difference.
It’s true that all Blogger designs (whether or not you have a design from us) come with Blogger’s default mobile coding (yay!)–however that coding does not allow many of your design elements to show (boo!). Rather than showing your beautiful header design, it may show only ugly default text. Our mobile coding codes the site to allow all design elements to show beautifully on mobile devices.
Without mobile responsive coding on WordPress designs, you see the full design as you would see it on a computer screen and then you have to zoom in and out to view and access the content. Mobile responsive coding neatly organizes all of the content nicely within the width of the mobile screen so all links and content can be accessed and viewed easily.
You can test whether or not your site is mobile responsive here.
Adding mobile responsive coding to your design may not be in your budget right now, but it’s something we highly recommend adding in the future to ensure your blog is a user friendly place for both computer and mobile users alike.
