To come clean, I'm behind the curve on responsive website design. I always thought I'd get on with it when I saw a lot of mobile users. The problem seems to be, these two down sites won't get many of those mobile users from Google if I don't make website that ranks well and that probably means upgrading them for mobile.
It's really a lot easier than you'd think. I'm not 100% sold on responsive design (although all my sites are responsive now) because the advertising industry hasn't caught up, but if you're not worried about that, I'd say go for it.
Probably belongs in another post, but my mobile traffic on my event sites is now over 50% of my total traffic (tens of millions of pageviews there) and it's all phones. That makes sense, because people look up events on their phones.
However, on the B2B client sites, we didn't figure we'd need to deal with mobile for a year or two yet, but we're seeing a big increase in tablets - because it makes perfect sense that people are walking around their warehouses checking on stock levels with tablets in their hands.
I don't think anyone should write off or postpone mobile at this point. I'm finding it picking up significantly in the least expected spaces.
