With the thriving smartphone market this year, more and more people are using their mobile devices to look for your content. Could you imagine what readers will do when they visit a mobile-unfriendly website? They will have difficulties in navigating your website, have to scroll left and right to read content and do a lot of pinching and zooming. Some stats show that 61% of users will leave and never return to those websites.
If you are using a WordPress theme designed for desktop and laptop’s size, it is possibly that your blog is not mobile-friendly and it will need some changes. I’ve seen some bloggers use WordPress plugins such as HandHeld Elegant Theme to create a mobile version of a website. This solution is simple and doesn’t require any changes in your blog’s design, however, the mobile and desktop versions are separated and have totally different looks. That’s why premium theme providers are investing a lot of time in creating responsive themes for WordPress. The responsive theme could help your blog’s design fit any screen size, from big screen of desktop, laptop to small screen of tablets and smartphones.
Premium theme studios like ElegantThemes or StudioPress keep releasing new responsive WordPress themes recently. Below are the best ones to make your WordPress blogs more mobile-friendly. You can see how they look by viewing on mobile devices or changing your browser window’s size.
