Mobile Optimised Websites… the FAQ’s

Mobile optimised websites, what are they?

Let’s get the definition out of the way: Mobile optimised websites are websites designed specifically to cater for mobile devices, as well as desktop computers & laptops. This means the mobile website will usually look slightly different in layout and have content variations.

For example a 2 or 3 column website with rich visual images and expansive menus can be scaled down, to a simple 1-column scrolling site with icon based navigation and smaller or greatly reduced imagery. Mobile optimised websites will go from a giant desktop monitor to a mobile device, seamlessly reshuffling content to suit all devices.

How do Mobile optimised websites work?

Mobile Optimised Websites know what device that is being used to view them. They then adjust the content & layout accordingly. High resolution images can be removed or replaced with low resolution images, huge articles can be refined or edited, all of which improves the load time, visual appeal and overall experience the user receives from your website. You have to assume mobiles users will not be connected to wifi therefore reducing the overall size of your website will have massive impact on page load time. In some cases we have reduced page load time from over 15 second to under 2 seconds.
