Mobile Website Design Guide For Ecommerce

I never used to pay any attention to optimizing my online store for mobile web surfers.

Why? It’s because for the longest time, mobile traffic didn’t even make a dent in my overall traffic numbers.

But times have changed. For the past few years, the amount of mobile traffic to my online store has increased in the triple digits and there doesn’t seem to be any end in sight to the exponential growth.

This page contains all of the articles that I’ve written involving how to optimize an ecommerce shop for mobile web users. Please check back often as I plan on adding new articles on a regular basis.
