Google’s recommendation to build mobile sites!Posted by on June 7, 2012 10:41 AM
Yesterday Google released its official recommendations on how to build mobile sites that Google likes and that are user friendly too. According to Google, the best idea is to opt for a responsive design or you may turn to device-specific HTML. The search engine has also specified the need for you to communicate when you are using device-specific HTML.
The search engine giant has outlined these three ways to consider when designing mobile sites:
- "Sites that use responsive web design, i.e. sites that serve all devices on the same set of URLs, with each URL serving the same HTML to all devices and using just CSS to change how the page is rendered on the device. This is Google’s recommended configuration.
- Sites that dynamically serve all devices on the same set of URLs, but each URL serves different HTML (and CSS) depending on whether the user agent is a desktop or a mobile device.
- Sites that have a separate mobile and desktop sites."
