Custom Mobile Site or Responsive Mobile Design?Let Webmosa assist in choosing which option is best for you. Both will optimize your site for smaller screens; both will speed up load times and offer touch-ready navigation. However, it's important to learn the advantage and disadvantages of each.

Custom
Mobile Build

 

Rendering Experience

A mobile site is essentially a copy of your website but with pages and content optimized for easier navigation. It is a separate set of content that is highly customizable for a unique experience.

 

Domain Situation

Many people use a domain such as "m.domain.com" to differentiate their mobile sites, but this can hurt organic search traffic and create twice as much content management by having separate content on two domains.

 

Search Value

Mobile sites use a separate domain meaning links shared from a mobile browser won't count as search link equity for your primary site.

 

Future Cost-Benefit

Higher maintenance will be required to keep the separate mobile domain current for next-generation phones & browsers. The costs may be lower initially but could potentially require higher maintenance times and expense later.

Responsive
Design

 

Rendering Experience

Your device does the work to automatically adjust the screen and orientation. This shifting of the original site content to fit the space on the fly is done by code in the backend of your site.

 

Domain Situation

Responsive Design lets you keep all content on one domain, with one editing access point. Having a single shared site is one of the ways to keep Google happier.

 

Search Value

The opposite is true for Responsive Design as the domains are the same; the site is simply using new code to render the page, not maintain separate domains.

 

Future Cost-Benefit

If your site is built Responsive edits made today or years from now will work without much further programming. This means less maintenance over time and though more expensive in the beginning it may return a better overall investment.
