Digital Nomads need Responsive WordPress Themes
If you’re a digital nomad, you may be writing a blog documenting your experiences and you may also be monetizing that blog with affiliate marketing. If so, you’ve got about a month to get your act together with a responsive theme before Google starts taking a bite out of your income stream. Read more here.

A responsive theme’s layout adjusts to the device’s screen size and gives an optimal viewing experience. The result of using one is your audience experiences easy reading and navigation on not just desktop computers but also on laptops, mobile phones, and tablets.

In theory, the theme used by this site is responsive but I haven’t run it through the paces to make sure it is sufficient for Google’s testing. Few “responsive themes” are really responsive without adding media queries and several lines of CSS. Almost all respond nicely to screen size but many don’t scale fonts nicely and most do fine in landscape format on Android but not in portrait. Now on the list of things to do: fully test all our sites’ for responsiveness. At the time of this writing, StartupAnywhere does not display affiliate ads but we are considering doing so in the very near future. We also have three other websites that we plan to deploy affiliate ads on soon as well.
