Below are a few Mobile Site Best Practices which one should keep in mind while developing a mobile website:
Keep it Fast:
Design your site to load fast and make content easy to read. Compress images to keep them small for faster site loading.
Minimize scrolling and use a clear hierarchy in menus. Use seven links or fewer per page of navigation.
Design your site so even large hands/thumbs can easily interact with it.
Make it Local:
Consumers most of the times look for local info on their phones, personalize when possible.
Make it Accessible:
Make your mobile site work across all mobile devices and all handset orientations.
Make it Easy to Convert:
Make it easy for your customers to buy something or contact you. Reduce the number of steps needed to complete a transaction. Keep forms short and use the fewest number of fields possible. Use click-to-call functionality.
Use Mobile Site Re-directions:
A mobile site redirect is code that can automatically tell if visitors are using a mobile device and send them to the mobile-friendly version of your site. Have your site developer implement this redirect code so your customers get the best version of your site for their needs.
