Make Blogger Blog Mobile Phone Friendly

Make Blogger Blog Mobile Phone Friendly

In blogging, it’s always a good idea to consider readership experience of your blog either through a PC web browser or mobile web browser.
Some of your readers might be using mobile devices such as feature phones or smart phones, but if you are using a BlogSpot or Blogger platform – you will need to tweak your template or theme to make it user-friendly. This is because by default, Blogger / BlogSpot templates are not designed for mobile phone web browsers.

Here’s another trick you should consider in doing your on-site SEO, which will basically let your blog loads faster on mobile web browsers, thus providing your readers a better experience.

To do that, login to your Blogger dashboard and go to the Design tab of your blog. Click on Edit HTML tab, and look for this code:

<b:include data=’blog’ name=’all-head-content’/>

Once you find the above code, paste the following codes just below it.

<meta content=’IE=EmulateIE7′ http-equiv=’X-UA-Compatible’/>
<b:if cond=’data:blog.isMobile’>
<meta content=’width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, user-scalable=0′ name=’viewport’/>
<b:else/>
<meta content=’width=1100′ name=’viewport’/>
</b:if>

Save your template, and now your blog is already mobile phone-friendly.
