    We’ve had trouble with duplicate content with mobile plugins that add parameters at the end of the URLs, or plugins that aren’t compatible with caching plugins.

    Great summary of mobile blogging templates, Sherwood.

    Keeping high SEO with the transition to a more mobile based user is very important. We see the use of smart phones increase by the month. It is too large of a market to drop the ball in creating an effective mobile template.

    As a web designer, it is always a struggle to make sure you hold true to the original site design while creating the mobile template. As you mentioned, there is a loss of important images, links, and in some cases, wording. It becomes a game of retail space.

    Even beyond SEO, it is still important to maintain functionality. Putting a large amount of information on such a small screen can cause frustration to a user when it comes to navigation. This may be a large reason why Apple’s iPad has much of its success as well.

    The ideal solution in my mind is to simply reformat the content to whatever device is used to access the content. No duplicate content. No having to worry about different screen sizes. It’s better from an SEO standpoint. It’s better from a user experience standpoint.

    Want to see how it’s done? Visit my site on a desktop, phone, and iPad. Same content. Reformatted for each device.
