When I look at my site from my laptop it looks professional and organized, but when I look at it from my tablet it looks unprofessional and disorganized. WHY? I have had customers tell me this as well, how do I FIX this? Help me, PLEASE!

The mobile browsers on some tablets and smart phones will re-arrange the content which messes up the appearance of some sites. The best thing is to actually create a mobile site so that those browsers don't do this. If you want to just use a single site, then the best thing you can do is create very simple pages, and try to eliminate any overlapping elements (images, text boxes, etc. ).

I highly recommend going the route of creating a mobile site. Google has been hinting for some time now that this is very important if your site depends on customers that may be searching from mobile devices.

HomeCheckz,

Thank you for your contributions to the Homestead Community, it is definitely appreciated

We actually offer a discounted rate on DudaMobile's services if you create a mobile version of your website from within your website account with us. You can do so from the Websites Manager page of your account. The option will be on the page for any website on your account that has a domain name associated with it.

Thanks,
Matt
