What’s New in 2017?

Get a Responsive Design Makeover for Your Current Website Design

The mobile transition is now hitting maturity. After first repeatedly testing responsive dynamic template code sets internally, Ceed is busy helping customers convert their websites with a fully loaded bag of CSS tricks that allow for exceeding degree of website design flexibility.

For instance, like your current website and prefer to keep it intact, while still satisfying your mobile visitors?

Starting from your existing website look and feel, your website will be set to gracefully slim down into a small but intelligent vision of your business essence.

Responsive dynamic website design

Is your website in HTML? No problem!

Your existing (X)HTML can be ‘mobilized’ and you don’t have to convert to a dynamic set up, which is actually usually better for your marketing presence. At the very at least, it is a much simpler and expedient execution from a marketing perspective, if do-able, depending on the size of your business and website and the extent to which you update and interact with the website, and in terms of your staff’s technical skill set.

Here is an example of a new responsive site built in simple HTML:

Responsive website design in XHTML

Here is an example of a website that is mobile friendly, yet just uses basic HTML and still looks very nearly like the original, in terms of the large-screen versions:

Or you can have a mix of static and dynamic pages.

Looking for a More Affordable and Reliable Option?

Two websites

Pictured is the previous Ceed Studio website design utilizing a two website approach for the mobile solution.

Another option which is actually generally faster than redesigning and / or re-coding the entire site and can also be very beneficial from a page speed load perspective is to build a separate website that loads for mobile. This can be a lot faster to develop because it is much simpler to design for a relatively static view, versus making sure the design is working at all the major ‘breakpoints’ or points in the code where a different look appears. However, we are no longer recommending this type of implementation due to the rumored shift in the Google algorithm coming up soon or by the end of 2017, which will use mobile page results as the key starting point of relevancy assessment in terms of the ranking algorithm, according to various SEO industry trade reports.

Two Websites Based on Separate CSS Stylesheets with Manual Control of the CSS View

Another less-used method for the two website solution overcomes the content update issue of having to update two versions, while allowing for a somewhat faster development timeline and other benefits of having two distinct, controllable designs. Basically, the CSS style sheet loads based on the browser width, thus showing either small or large view. In fact, this solution can also be tiered to more than just two views as well. For manual stylesheet control, this solution requires JavaScript to be enabled. By adding the appropriate buttons, the user can toggle views between available CSS versions / screen view sizes if desired.
