MOBILE WEBSITE DESIGN / RESPONSIVE DESIGN
This year, more people will view your website on a mobile device than on a desktop computer.
Results from multiple surveys show that most people will leave your website if it is hard to use on a mobile device. And worse still, Google are rolling out penalties for websites that are not mobile friendly. This means that your website could be demoted in the search engine rankings.

Google prefers responsive website design (one url to serve all platforms) over the more traditional approach of having two websites; one for desktops and one specifically for mobile phones. This involves redirects and an additional url (usually something like www.mobi.yourdomain.com).
