WordPress Plugin WPtouch is AWESOME

wptouch featured
Today I stumbled upon a pretty awesome plugin for WordPress that I wanted to share. I know a lot of my PeerFly publishers are working with mobile traffic and are busy creating mobile optimized landing pages using jQuery Mobile for their campaigns, but today I found something that seems like it would probably be a lot easier.

WPtouch

So, what is WPtouch? It’s a plugin for WordPress that allows you to quickly create a mobile optimized version of your blog within a few minutes and it requires zero coding or theme modifications! Sound too good to be true? Check it out: wptouch example It works amazingly well and is really easy to setup.

How to add WPtouch to your blog and make it mobile optimized

The steps to installing WPtouch is the same as any other WordPress plugin. Simply search for WPtouch in the Add New part of the Plugins section of your WordPress backend or download and install it manually from the WPtouch page on WordPress. Once you’ve installed and activated the plugin you are pretty much setup. If you view your blog on a mobile device you will see the default layout of WPtouch. You can edit the settings and theme within the settings page to fit your needs. I simply removed the tags, show the entire title, and changed the icon for mine (screenshot above).

Create a mobile optimized landing page using WordPress and WPtouch?

So, here’s my thoughts. A lot of people use WordPress to create their landing pages for their affiliate marketing campaigns. Why couldn’t you create a blog to promote a product/offer and use WPtouch to make it mobile optimized and send traffic to it through AdMob or InMobi like you would any other mobile campaign? I’m not trying to generate a whole new epidemic of flogs, but if you have a legit WordPress blog you’re asking traffic to you might be able to get mobile traffic to convert as well if you had a mobile optimized version of it. I am going to setup WPtouch on our PeerFly blog and suggest you set it up on your blogs too. The smartphone industry is growing and there’s a lot of traffic out there that’s really cheap to buy right now. Hop on board and start making money before everyone else does :)

    WPtouch has been added to the official PeerFly blog and I’ve been messing with a little more since I wrote this article. If you try to view any page on your blog (not just posts) those are also mobile optimized. For example, if you try to look at my Join PeerFly page that is mobile optimized as well with WPtouch and looks great! Awesome plugin.

    I am going to try to get a case study done soon using WPtouch as a landing page and see what kind of results I can get.

    • I’ve just installed WPTouch free version via the admin page of my WordPress hosted site. Note that this is looked after by a colleague who created the site so I don’t usually mess around with it other than changing a few bits of texts and photos.
      My main problem is I can’t see how to change the mobile themes – I though even the free version gave some choices. Also on my iPhone4S it opens with one full page – ‘Home’ or ‘About Us’ etc – I’d rather it went straight to the ‘pages’/’menu’ for any site visitor – sort of like yours.

      Any tips?

      Thanks so much,

      Stewart

    Oh.. Just found this review then immediately install and try wptouch on my blog. it’s more than fantastic plugin. Thanks for the review article.

  1. Interesting, I’ve been thinking the same but with the pro version as LP. Imagine video marketing on iPad…

    Would be nice with a case study of your result. I’ve tried Admob but they’re not exactly easy to deal with.

  2. For a free plugin its amazing well worth the time messing around with the settings. I did purchase wp touch pro Ipad options are pretty sweet!

  3. Thanks so much for the review! Glad you’re enjoying WPtouch!
