Hello,

To be honest in the beginning when I was creating a site, I did not focus for a second on the mobile part. I thought: A site like this, you do not check with your mobile...
And indeed I would not, but apparently a lot of people think otherwise and expecting that a site like Wealthy Affiliate should be completely mobile friendly, which means you need 2 sites I suppose...

But this in mind and with the remarks of google inside I got started to wonder if there is not a good process or list with steps that you follow to make your site a lot more user friendly an just better...

So hereby: What do you do, during developing your site, to make the site mobile friendly?
Are there a few steps you always check?
(Like for example, I noticed that the viewport setting has often been wrong...)

It would be nice to share our experiences, so maybe we end up with a short list of attention points to check wile we are creating our site...

Thanks in advance!

Grtz,
Bert

Hi Bert,

I noticed that to the other day when I asked somebody to check my website and I noticed it is way to long and keep peoples attention as on a desk / laptop so I did my posts again and stick to around 750 words. Also I check on my own phone how the site is looking.

I do have to ad a comment here and that is also who is your target, if you aim for younger people they do much more on their phone so its more important.

There you make my point Cees, I noticed that they're much more people surfing mobile then I thought..
And indeed certainly the youngsters...
Thanks for the comment...

Hi - for some older sites, I just looked for responsive too, as others have mentioned, in the free themes.

More recently, I've used premium (paid for) responsive themes, as they tend to, in my experience anyway, come with really good support should you need it.

Cheers, Mark

Indeed, a paid theme has the advantage of support, sometimes is the support alone worth the money I think..

The truth is: I am hard working, but the ambassadorship that is something else... ;-)

HI, I did a search for 'RESPONSIVE" themes to make sure my site is friendly on not just a computer, but also phones and other devices

So you check the mobile friendly capacity when you choose your theme, sounds like the best start you can get....

Thanks for your input and if have other ideas, please don' hesitate...

Good idea! I'm just leaving it for now, but this might not be the best approach...
