Edition ##28: Forget Mobile-First or Mobile-Only - It's Time to Get Truly Responsive

Today is Sitebulb's 4th birthday! FOUR WHOLE YEARS!

I remember the day as if it was yesterday, pacing nervously up and down the corridor, anxious and excited in equal measures. Back then Gareth and I had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. Honestly, we wondered if we were ready for that level of commitment. It never felt like the perfect time.

I think the truth is that it's never the perfect time.

But here we are 4 years later, and we've never looked back! In order to celebrate this moderately impressive milestone, we're running a modest swag giveaway competition on Twitter. Get involved and you could bag yourself a sweet Sitebulb hoody and be the envy of all your peers.

Enough about us, here's a bunch of words that might appease your eyes:

Forget Mobile-First or Mobile-Only - It's Time to Get Truly Responsive

via @jessthebp

A hugely enjoyable post that explains the evolution towards (and past) 'mobile first', encouraging you to think about GoogleBot as a user and to better understand the rendering experience for as many of your users as possible. Quite a lot of words, but very much worth your time!

Part guide, part case study, this is a comprehensive post on how to do 'multilingual SEO', going deep into the theory and demonstrating how it was put to use on forexsuggest.com, with great success.

Tackling 8,000 Title Tag Rewrites: A Case Study

via @dr_pete

It was unfortunately impossible for me to COMPLETELY ignore the Great Google Title Tag Switcheroo of 2021, and of the 400 articles that appeared overnight, I liked Dr Pete's the best, offering a balanced perspective with a conclusion that I largely agree with.

Crawl Budget

via @THCapper

While some may consider the juxtaposition of Dr Pete's post (above) with this rather underwhelmingly titled Moz post a titillating irony I was unable to ignore, this Whiteboard Friday video did make the cut on its own merit, and not just because it sounds like Tom is in a cave. He tackles the poorly understood concept of 'crawl budget', explaining how issues with crawl budget occur and what you can do about them.
