ProBlogger Podcast: The Benefits of Your Blog Being Mobile-Friendly

ProBlogger-Podcast-Avatar-300x300 ProBlogger Podcast: The Benefits of Your Blog Being Mobile-Friendly

Today is Day 6 in our 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Challenge

There’s no denying it – the time has come where you’re going to lose traffic if your blog is not optimised for mobile viewing.

Whether that dip in traffic is due to Google penalising non-mobile-friendly sites by not featuring their content in mobile search results thanks to their “Mobile Friendly Update” (otherwise known as Mobilegeddon), or because your reader isn’t having a pleasant reading experience and will click away to another blog where they do, you may never know. But the time is now to get your site mobile-friendly and capitalise on the fact that mobile traffic is outnumbering desktop traffic at breakneck speed.

Now this is one of the challenges in the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog series on the ProBlogger Podcast that might not be able to be completed in a day, but it’s something you can make a start with today, at least.

In this episode, I ask you to look at your blog on a mobile device from your readers’ perspective, and I give you some questions to ask yourself as you look. I also go through a few options to help you transition if you blog on WordPress, with links in the show notes to a few of my favourite sites and plugins.

If your blog is already mobile-friendly, we go through a checklist of things to do to make sure your reader is getting the best mobile experience possible. You won’t want to miss it.

Click here to listen to day six of the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog series on the ProBlogger Podcast.
