Why should I care if iPhones can view my website?

Why should I care if iPhones can view my website?

I wondered this myself until I started to notice that a growing number of viewers were looking at my site from mobile devices. Did you know that almost 2.7 hours per day mobile users are viewing websites? If they can’t see your website, they will go visit another one.

I changed my theme to be more mobile friendly today. I wonder if that will increase or decrease traffic. I will let you know tomorrow. I used a free WordPress theme called Independent Publisher. I like it. It is simple and different. It is highly rated on WordPress.org.

Of course you can buy a separate program like WPTouch that can also take your website and make it mobile friendly if you want a different theme or options. I choose not to buy this since I didn’t like people to have to deal with two different interfaces. I didn’t imagine that most of my readers would be reading with a mobile device, but I was wrong. I think if you are used to using a regular computer it is hard to imagine that people are using your website differently.

Update: I didn’t notice any difference in traffic yesterday after installing the mobile-ready WordPress theme. However I did notice that my menu wasn’t working correctly in the theme Independent Publisher, so I am trying a new theme called Elucidate. It looks very similar to IP but my menus work correctly. Lets see how this theme works out.

Rootkits – how to fix them

Rootkits – how to fix them.

I helped a friend today with a particularly difficult rootkit he had on his computer. I scanned his system with 3 anti-virus programs but none of them found the issue. Even Malwarebytes which is normally solid, didn’t find the issue. I had to use RogueKiller.exe (by Tigzy) to clean the system.

RogueKiller immediately found the problem and it was linked to two Google Earth files. It cleaned it easily. You can also use other software to remove ZeroAccess rootkit.

Apparently this ZeroAccess rootkit is used for click fraud and bitcoin mining. However it can be used to install other programs so I wouldn’t ignore this kind of infection. My friend asked if a Mac would save him from this issue and the truth is that it would. It also wouldn’t. The mac gets malware and trojans as well, but Apple tends to update its scanner and stay on top of the issues. In addition the excellent Sophos for mac that I have used for years finds any PC trojans/malware and deletes them to help keep our Windows friends safe.
