How to Use Google Currents [VIDEO]

How to Use Google Currents and WordPress

Google recently announced Google Currents.  It’s a mobile app that YOU can use to create a mobile “edition” of your WordPress site.  It takes about 15 minutes to setup (assuming you have a running WordPress site of course).

Once created, you’ll find your mobile edition on the Google Currents app.   There are two ways this could go…

  1. No one used Google Currents.  So what?  It only took 15 minutes and you’ve had chance to tell Google even more about your site.  This is never a bad thing.
  2. Everyone starts using Google Currents.  Nice!  You’re one of the first people to take advantage of this new platform.
Oh… did I mention it allows you to collect emails as well?

Ready to get started?  Here’s the link to setup your own Google Currents Edition.

If you want just the app, you can get Google Currents here.

I’ll be glad to try to answer any questions… just leave them in the comments below!

    Chris is this your favorite mobile wordpress theme? If not which one is?

      Hi Eden – to be clear… Google Currents isn't an actual theme. It's a mobile app, developed by Google, that allows its users to browse mobile "editions" of various websites. The video shows you how to create and distribute that edition so users of Google Currents can see it.

      With that out of the way, I've not personally played too much with mobile themes, but Themeforest has some nice ones here:

    Mercer – how do you find these little gems! This looks really interesting and as you say, if nothing comes of it, then fine. But something else to flash at Google to make 'em notice us!
    Thank you for the heads up.

    Thanks Mercer,
    I have heard some talk of Google making all sites have a mobile version by some future date?Will setting up keep us from being delisted once Google's mobile rules take place?

      I can only guess as to what Google has planned, but it's always a good idea to make sure you have a mobile-friendly site. Setting up Google Currents would be a great first start, but I'd also make sure your site loads well using a mobile browser.

    Hi Mercer and thanks for this. I've now got it all set up to the point where I tried to get the app on my IPhone….unfortunately it's not available in the UK yet…..try it out in the States then let the Brits go to town on it lol….so I guess I just need to wait for that bit. All set up though and that's the main thing – thanks again to your wonderful tuition. Trish
