Google Now Favors Mobile-Friendly Sites

It is official now, Google's latest formula favors websites that are defined as "mobile-friendly". If you don't want to lose your rank in mobile search, be sure your site design is mobile-friendly. If it is not, don't need to panic. We have a quick & affordable solution for you — simply switch to any Themify's responsive theme. We've been building responsive themes for many years. All our responsive themes pass the Google's Mobile-Friendly Test.

How to test if your site is mobile-friendly?

  1. Go to Mobile-Friendly Test
  2. Enter your site URL to analyze
  3. If you get "Awesome! This page is mobile-friendly.", it means your site passed!

Below are some of the reports of our responsive theme demos:

Notes:

  • If you see a message "There was a problem with the request. Please try again later.", click on the "Analyze" button to get the report (the tool might be busy).
  • We have only listed a few of examples above. You may use the Mobile-Friendly Test to test all our responsive theme demos.

Write a Review, Get 2 Themify Themes or 1 Plugin Free!

We love hearing what you think about our WordPress themes/plugins! User feedbacks played an important role on how we've been able to continue to create WordPress themes/plugins for the past 4 years. Over the years, we've used this insight to help us improve our existing offerings, and improve the overall experience when using Themify.

We love feedback

In fact, we love getting your feedback so much that in exchange, we're going to give you something for free: Simply write a review of a Themify theme on your blog, and you can get any two (2) Themify WordPress themes or any one (1) Themify plugin for free!

How it Works

All you have to do is send in an application that lets us know your name and website. If you are selected for this initiative, you will get 2 free themes or 1 free plugin of your choice so you can start testing. Within 30 days, you must write a full review: telling us what you like, what you don’t like, and any additional suggestions or feedback you might have. Specifically about design, installation process, usage, and any other aspects you’d like to include. Once you’ve published the post, send us the URL, and those two themes or one plugin are now yours to keep!

Update: If you have a Club Membership, you can still participate in this promotion but instead of getting a free theme/plugin we'll extend your membership for 4 months! Just write in the application form > "Optional Message" your username and membership type. Once you've written the review we'll extend your membership for free for an additional 4 months.

Megan Elliott – Launching Lush Design Shop with Themify

We're very excited to share to everyone the latest addition to our Customer Stories series. Introducing Lush Design Shop creator, Megan Elliott - an entreprenuer who, through Themify, was able create beautifully designed sites for her clients. Check out here entire story below:

megn-elliott

My name is Megan Elliott and I am the web designer behind Lush Design Shop. As a blogger, I saw a major need for affordable blog design. There are tons of themes available, but who wants a carbon copy that anyone else can have? Most custom designers charge well over $5,000 for a blog design. I knew I wasn't the only one who noticed this gap in the market. So I decided to step into that niche of affordable, yet professional blog design. (more…)

New Tiles Plugin

If you like the Windows 8 Metro design, we've got good news for you! We've built a standalone plugin that lets you create flippable tile layouts on your WordPress site. The Tiles Plugin was inspired and designed based from our Tiles Builder addon, but without the dependency of the Themify Builder. This plugin allows you to create unlimited tile layouts with any WordPress theme. We've packed it with tons of features, such as 4 tile sizes (horizontal, landscape, portrait, and box), 5 tile types (text, map, gallery, button, and blank), and 11 flip animations. To ensure ease of use, we've built it with live preview and the drag and drop tool, giving you the ability to control the look and feel of your tile layout.

Check out the demo by clicking on the button below, or use the Tiles plugin on your WordPress site immediately by buying it now!
