Back in February of 2015, Google added mobile-friendly sites as a criteria to their page rankings. Google have updated their algorithms, and mobile-friendly design will have significant impact to search results. To test and make sure your site is mobile-friendly, here’s a website that will analyze your website design and display the results.
I’m releasing a WordPress plugin called “Web Fonts.” This plugin takes advantage of the free and open-source Google Web Fonts. If you’re not familiar with Google Web Fonts, it’s a group of fonts that allows designers to customize the looks of their blogs or websites using hundreds of exotic fonts. With a gaggle of external fonts available for use, “Web Fonts” can transform the overall design of a website.

- Upload the “webfonts” folder to the WordPress plugins folder.
