sdv3 is a completely different way of doing site designs than RSD v1.5 although you can open your project in sdv3 it will take so much effort & know how to adapt it to sdv3, it will probably be quicker to start again from scratch in sdv3.
Eeek! No way can I do that. I only know basic html - NOT EVEN CSS, and paid someone to design me the basic site before, in RSD 1. Cant afford to do that again, at this time. Business has been slow.
on my phone, it loads almost instantly (4G), who the bejeebers uses 3G nowadays, (and here we are a developing country with a national phone system that makes the one Alexander Graham Bell developed to look like a digital broadband one )
Well the Google tester uses 3g speed, to give a worst case, I suppose. This is what they use to determine landing page quality ratings, for Adwords use.
They were also telling me that the page was "low quality", according to their standards ( I spoke with their support ) because it didn't have a "Call Us" button for mobile users, and because too much text was on the landing page and needed to be moved onto other menued pages with links. The problem is that I know my business and they don't, and I'd rather not design my page to please their algorithm, instead of my clients. But then they can charge me more for using Adwords ads.
To answer your other question, I looked up statistics and found that, by the end of this year, 2/3 of all website visitors will be using mobile devices, so this is why Google is telling me that my site needs to be "mobile friendly", which of course the responsive design helped immensely with! But two of the big items are, that mobile users want a "Call Us" button, so they don't have to memorize our phone number and take it into their phone app. And also that "the fold always matters", which I need some work on, I suppose, AND getting most of that text off the page and into sub menus. ( I doubt most people even read it anyway! )
