Determine Your Needs & Find Great Help

If your site was built on a CMS (e.g., Wordpress)…

Depending on your CMS, your options may include:
  • Convert to a new mobile-friendly theme.
  • Create a new mobile-friendly version of your site.
  • Customize your site to make it mobile-friendly (requires CSS, HTML knowledge).

If your site was coded by a developer…

Your site must be configured using one of three options:
  • Responsive web design (Google's recommendation): Using the same HTML and URL, renders the appropriate display for the device.
  • Dynamic serving: Uses the same URL, but a different version of HTML for different devices.
  • Separate URLs: Serves different code to different devices using separate URLs (through HTTP redirects).
