Detailed Guide on Surviving Google Mobile SEO [Infographic]

Want a competitive benefit? Implementing a successful mobile strategy in 2015 will get you there as a recent study explained that 74% of mobile users use search engines to make a purchase.

You can do this by optimizing your website for small screen devices to target the mobile users and improve the user experience in mobile devices.

These following 3 configurations can be used when developing the mobile website:

  • Responsive Web Design– Responsive design can serve the same HTML on the same URL according to device’s screen size. Mobile devices are often constrained by display size and require a different approach to how content is laid out on screen.
  • Dynamic Serving– In this approach website where the server responds with different HTML (and CSS) on the same URL depending on the user agent requesting the page.
  • Separate URLs– In this method different URLs are being served to users. It means that both desktop and mobile versions are being developed for a website and being served to the user according to their device. A common setup would be pages on serving desktop users with corresponding pages served on for mobile users.
