    Very interesting but it leaves mores questions. What is recommended, or what is the trend? I believe Responsive design over a mobile URL, what does everyone else think?

  • Jeff Smith

    It would be nice to have a couple examples of sites that have successfully implemented responsive design and which are doing well in organic search.

    correlation, yes. causation, give us more (even if theoretical) please.

    Google and Bing recommend one URL with responsive design

    It depends on what you’re trying to achieve, as the point of this study was that any of these configurations can work for mobile SEO. Responsive design can be great and efficient, but it doesn’t account for search behavior that happens on mobile devices but not on desktops. Whatever configuration allows you to easily align search behavior with content is the option I recommend.

    I’m afraid there aren’t many of them on this particular list. These are the sites on the list that are also responsive:

    about.com

    mashable.com

    microsoft.com

    disney.go.com

    Maybe in the future, Pat, but the point of this study was only to show which mobile configurations can work for organic search traffic, and this high correlation of mobile content to traffic should be enough for most people.

    Yes, but they support responsive design, dynamic serving and mobile URLs, which this data clearly shows.

    currys.co.uk is a good example of responsive design

    “Maybe in the future”, I’ll take it! Keep rocking!
