Genesis Mobile Widgets is a plugin that has been developed specifically for bloggers who are looking to increase their revenue on mobile devices. Back on April 21, 2015 Google expanded their use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal changing how websites are shown in their search results on mobile devices. Websites that are mobile-friendly would rank higher while websites that are not mobile-friendly would be pushed down in rank. This was a drastic change for many bloggers using unresponsive websites who had very good page rank in Google search results.
Google’s change in turn drove many bloggers using WordPress to redesign their websites in a responsive manner, while other bloggers using unresponsive themes decided to use mobile-friendly plugins. The problem with both of these methods caused a huge decrease in revenue generation for many bloggers. For those moving to responsive website design, this forces the primary sidebar to drop below the content area, pushing their ads farther to the bottom. Many visitors may not see their ads. For users of mobile-friendly plugins, some bloggers’ revenue generating ads do not show up at all on mobile devices.
Enter… “Genesis Mobile Widgets!”
