Have you take a look at your traffic stat lately? If you have, you will discover that a large amount of mobile users are visiting your blog, right?
Now we are in the mobile world where mobile internet is gradually dominating the online world and not taking advantage, is like saying – “hey, I don’t need your kind of people here”. At least, that is what I feel 🙂 . Stop sleeping, stop chasing things that doesn’t matter and start pursuing things that will give you positive result.
If I ask you why you’re not using mobile theme on your blog, the best and only answer you will give me is – “because my theme is responsive”. Seriously, do you really think your blog is that responsive enough? This is the best time to start showing your mobile visitors love by showing them what they want to see. And what do your mobile readers want to see? They want to see a neat blog that is very easy to navigate.
Let me ask you this – have you tried checking Facebook.com, blogger.com, Yahoo.com, CNN.com etc. using your mobile phone? Though, their desktop view is very responsive but still, they have a mobile template to complement their mobile visitors.
I have already talked about why it is necessary to get a mobile theme for your blog but if, let me start again 🙂
That one reason #1: To attract more mobile traffic
Sometimes last year, I learned that mobile search engines favor sites with mobile template more. Right now, if your blog has a neat mobile template, you will get even more favor from mobile search compared to responsive theme.

What I’m I saying? Your blog will be more visible to mobile users when they search for a query that matches or relate to your blog. Now with this way, your traffic will multiply and income increased for both mobile and pc users 🙂
That one reason #2: To help your new visitors navigate your blog properly
Okay, people use their mobile phone to search for stuffs regularly and most of the time; search engine brings these people to your blog. If these mobile readers finish reading your blog post and they want to see more of your awesome posts or they want to navigate through your blog for more resource, how do you expect them to move freely when your blog mobile view doesn’t have navigation sense?
Some days back, I visited a blog using my android device. After reading the blog post, I decide to browse through the blog if I’ll see some more interesting stuff but after trying so hard, I just couldn’t find the menu bar. Maybe because I was using opera mini to browse the site but when I check the blog on my pc, it came out well and beautiful.
Remember that your mobile readers can also do business with you and they can also increase your traffic 3x. So giving them the same option as you give your pc users is just the right choice.
That reason #3: satisfying your mobile readers
I know that you have checked your site on tablet and or IOS platform and you think that your site design look awesome on mobile, right? But have you tried checking your site on phones like the java and Symbian OS? If you have, you will discover how ugly your site looks on them 🙂 or try viewing your responsive blog on a mobile phone using “single column view” and see how it goes…
In case you don’t know, people still use the java and Symbian phones especially in Africa. And these sets of people search for stuffs online and they even buy things online as well, so why lose those traffic?
That one reason why you need a mobile theme for your blog
The one reason you need a mobile template or theme for your blog, is to get more traffic from the mobile front. It also helps your mobile users browse your site freely without them wasting so much bandwidth just to get access to your blog.
Back to you guys
If mobile template/ theme are not awesome, Google wouldn’t have implemented it for blogger blog users’ right? So now you do the math 🙂
I know that this post might not convince you enough to have a mobile theme or template for your blog but hey, you have the choice to do what you want, right? But I am just so glad that I voiced out my mind today.
