  • Question

  • User326238360 posted

    Hiya all,

    i'm adapting a web site to support mobile devices.

    I've read google goMo guidelines and i've a question: it's better to have one page's output adapted for web and desktop or it's better to have two distinct url for each page, one for mobile and one for everyone-else?

    I've seen that wordpress and others approach is to have a third level for mobile version.

    Thank you for your kind help.

    T.

    Hi,

    It's up to you! Generally you will expose only one URL. Based on the requested device, users are redirected to the particular site!

    Hope it helps u...

    so supposing a page like this:

    www.mydomain.com/ciao.ashx

    you suggest to use only this url and render differently on device change?

    or it's better to have also:

    mobile.mydomain.com/ciao.ashx

    this seems to be a stupid question, but i've read about a new google-bot that present himself as a mobile device and harvest output directed to mobile device.

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    You can also achieve like that!

    Moreover you can have two URL's and expose only one! e.g.,

    http://www.google.com and http://m.google.com

    Where we all know www.google.com and if wee type in a mobile browser, which it automatically redirects the user to http://m.google.com

    In another scenario, you will have one URL which display the page based on the requested device!

    Hope it helps u...
