If you’ve ever run a PageSpeed or other speed test for the mobile version of your site, you’ve undoubtedly been horrified by the low speed and score compared to the desktop version of your site.
In this post I’ll explain:
- Why mobile performance is typically worse
- The primary cause of slow mobile pages
- How to create mobile-specific versions of your pages
- How to remove unnecessary files from your mobile pages
Optimizing for mobile does take a bit of extra effort since site owners are usually “retrofitting” their sites for mobile performance.
If you are starting a new site, it will be easier if you consider mobile performance from the start, and make it a priority.
