Why you need a mobile friendly website – now!

I’ve talked about user experience when viewing websites from mobile devices. Now it seems there’s another reason to make your website mobile-friendly – your presence in Google search results could suffer if you don’t. For some time, there have been suggestions that websites which can’t be viewed and used effectively on a mobile device might not display as well in the mobile search results.

Mobile website or responsive design – a choice to make?

Traditionally, websites have always been designed for optimum display on a desktop or laptop PC. Usually, as long as a few issues are borne in mind, like avoiding the use of flash and any action which requires a “hover” action to function (a lot of drop down menus used to work this way) a desktop designed website will function well on a tablet device like an ipad too.
