There are multitudes of devices and gadgets out in the market today, and not all of your readers will be exploring your website or blog using the same device. There aresmartphones, tablets, notebooks, then, of course,there are those who will be surfing via desktop computers, or laptops.
How do you make sure those accessing via smaller screens are seeing the same thing as those on bigger screens? What about gadgets with vertical displays, shouldn’t they be showing the same thing as devices with horizontal displays?
The first thing that might come to your mind is to create different domains for a blog to accommodate different devices. Don’t do that, this will confuse those who want to access your site. Having more than one URL to a webpage will also impact your SEO ranking negatively.
