MOBILE WEB SITE DESIGN - A MUST HAVE
A mobile version of your web site is crucial to the success of your online marketng strategy. When you arrive at a site using a mobile device and the desktop version is rendered, the text is tiny and almost impossible to read unless you pinch in to see the expanded text and scroll around the page sections to get it all. Very tedious and most users will just go back to the search results and find a site that they can easily read. This can cost you potetnial cusotomers. People on the move using mobile devices generally do not have patience to engage something that is less than convenient to use. A mobile optimized website will yield the maximum amount of possible desktop/mobile visitors. ">
MOBILE SITE TYPES
There are two basic types of mobile design web sites. Standalone is a site that is completely seperate from the desktop site and has it's own domain. It's managed just like you have two web sites because in acutality, you do. One for the mobile and one for the desktop site. They may be identical, but the mobile site is specifically designed to diplay well on the smaller devices. The other type, and the one that the web design community has been gravitating toward, is called responsive design. Responsive design has code in the main desktop site that detects what kind of device that the visitor is on, then serves up a version that displays best on that device. They each have thier pros and cons, but overall, responsive is probably the better choice. It is such when any changes are made to images, test, or design, those changes instantly apply to both sites. With standalone, you have to make changes in both places individually.
