MOBILE WEB DEVELOPMENT OVERVIEW » This page provides an introductory overview to our Mobile Web Design related services, including Mobile Application Development, All Device Interoperability and Compatibility, as well as Mobile Marketing, Advertising, MSEO [Mobile Search Engine Optimization], and more.

mobile web designs

CUSTOM MOBILE WEBSITES » Like our web design services for traditional desktop websites, we ascribe to a formal mobile design process in adherence with the W3C Mobile Best Practices guidelines. Mobile websites are mostly used by a uniquely specific end user group who are tech savvy and have very goal driven web usage patterns of online behaviors.

GOOGLE MOBILE » Just as Mobile Website Design and Development requires special small screen and slower processor considerations, Google Search is uniquely voice enabled, as well as other Google Services uniquely tailored for handheld web use. Mobile Seo is also quite different than traditional Seo for desktop websites, and is frequently customized by latitude and longitude positioning at the time of query. Mobile search engine results rendered to handheld G search clientele is strongly influenced by the end user's geo-location at the time of query, if location awareness is enabled on that user's device.

WEBSITE PERFORMANCE » Even prior to Google announcing that download and response speeds were becoming an SEO ranking factor, we were on top of it.

Get the message exposed, rather than a narcissistic Flash animation. Nobody is going to wait while a site owner spends precious seconds getting the damn Flash page to render.
