There’s quite the debate between using a single-domain or an m-dot URL to deliver a mobile site. And in a world where SEO is so important, it has – of course – crept into the conversation.
Here at Moovweb, we don’t have a dog in the fight. Our platform supports either using a single-URL or an m-dot to deliver a mobile-optimized page. And we’ve seen both used well, which puts us in an interesting situation to evaluate their merits.
