In an age where websites are increasingly being viewed on mobile phones, tablets, and other mobile devices, it is very vital to have a mobile version for your site.
But if you think that just using your current desktop-based website for your mobile site would do, then you are wrong. Even with smartphones and tablets becoming more and more powerful, you should still make sure that your mobile site displays properly on any mobile device screen.
Why is this very important?
1. Give your users the best experience. There is no sense in making your mobile visitors scroll from left to right and up and down just to read the content on your site. If you have made sure that your site renders properly, they will not need to do a lot of scrolling. Also, it helps to ensure readability and usability for your mobile sites so that mobile users would not find it difficult to read your text or get lost trying to find their way around your mobile site.
2. Let Google index your mobile site. As with the desktop version of your website, it is useless if people cannot find it. Google, however, uses a different crawler for mobile sites. If the crawler does not recognize your mobile site or is not able to view it, it will not show up on its index. In short, your site would not be searchable if the person searching for your site is on a mobile device. Think of all the sales and the hits that you are going to miss out on if this happens to you.
