What is a mobile-only website?

A mobile-only site is a completely separate website to your primary website. It is often a simplified version of the site and the layout and content is designed specifically for the best experience when being viewed on a tablet or mobile phone.

Whilst a mobile-only site is often cheaper to develop it does have disadvantages in terms of search engine optimisation, loading issues and of course the need to maintain and update two websites going forward. It can also make any marketing efforts more challenging e.g. which site do you promote and link back to when posting on social media?

Personally, we recommend responsive websites over mobile-only website however the decision is yours and will depend on your budget, timescales, your target audience etc. Give us a call, we’d be happy to talk it through with you.
