Your Website on Mobile
I wanted to share this info from our friend @boomergp08 (Robert) in case you haven't seen it yet. It's very important.
As you can see from the title, the subject is how your website appears on mobile (cell phones, smartphones).
Depending on your theme, your site may look very different to a visitor that is viewing it on their phone as opposed to a laptop.
And, it needs to look a certain way to be reader-friendly on a phone. Plus, loading speed is important.
Why does it matter? Because more and more people are searching and shopping from their phone, which is very relevant to anyone with an online business. I have Amazon sites, and that business has made it very easy for people to shop from their phones.
The good news is that most WordPress themes are responsive and you would probably just need a little tweaking to be fine. I use Astra and that's all I needed to do – adjust some images and make sure there was plenty of white space.
Here's the part I don't want you to miss:
Our friend @boomergp08 (Robert) has posted a couple of blogs and a training that you will want to check out to get great info on this topic.
He had dinner twice with an old work friend who currently works at Google (2 blogs), and then he shared the important points in a training. I believe there is another to follow later. You can find them here:
Read these to get the well-explained information that Robert has so generously shared with us.
One point from my experience:
As I said, I only needed to do a bit of tweaking to get my sites looking okay. And, that may be all you need to do.
However, I did notice that with images on mobile, if they are aligned to the right or left, they don't look as good because they squash the text into small odd columns. If they are really small it works better. The images that are aligned "center" work far better.
Keep in mind that this is just my experience with my theme and sites. You may have a different view.
I hope you find this as helpful as I did.
A BIG Thank-You to Robert for sharing this with the commmunity!
All the best with your websites,
