Making your own blog might seem a great idea! And it is so much fun. Personally i learn every day more and more. To improve my blog for instance. Today i came across an article about the new google algorithm. Basically google will tell the searcher if a website is mobile friendly or not. In a time everything is done on cellphones is it important your site displays itself correctly on every device that can be used.
Now will this in fact damage your number of visitors directly? I say yes in the long run at least. If a website is not mobile friendly. Your visitors need to scroll left/right to read article’s. And with the low patience in generaal in today’s 15 till 65 years range. They will not go beyond the first page.
There are two ways you can go. A mobile website or a responsive website. My blog is a responsive website so you can also read without hassle on a tablet. Or make the page smaller on your computer. And i recommend this option. A mobile site will look on every device the same. Same domain ect as well. And when your visitor visits a mobile template website it will directly go to a sub domain. This is a like a ghost site with its own URL’s.
Here is a link to see if your site is capable using on a cellphone.
My blog works with WordPress and getting a template that is responsive is easy to get by. I do not have experience with other content management systems.
