Why are commercial printers attempting to create mobile-optimized Web experiences? Well, the US population is sitting at around 311 million. Of those 311 million people, about half of US adults own a smartphone. On top of that, for a whopping 28% of Americans, a mobile device is their primary way of accessing the Web .
So, for a commercial printer looking to reach potential customers, mobile provides a tremendous opportunity to connect with them.
What’s more is that people are arriving to the mobile Web through more diverse channels than ever before. In addition to direct and referral traffic, Printers are using social networks, email campaigns, SMS campaigns, search and more. Because these activities are increasingly happening on mobile, creating Web experiences optimized for mobile makes even more sense for commercial printers.
Why Would Anyone Visit A Printer’s Website?Who is visiting these printers websites? What are they looking for? Why might they want on a mobile device? Visitors are generally either looking for information on how to print their products, or looking to take action. requesting quotes and ordering printing products.
The most beautiful design in the world will accomplish nothing if people can’t view it. Historically, the mobile Web has been viewed as the Web Lite™, whose users get served only a subset of content and functionality. However, a whopping 28% of US residents use a mobile device as their primary way to access the Web . With more people relying on their mobile devices to access the Web, achieving content parity and giving users access to a full experience regardless of their device or configuration are more important than ever.
Separate Mobile Websites VS Responsive Websites.the Web design world is entrenched in its own debate about how to address the mobile Web: creating separate mobile websites versus creating responsive websites.
Separate Mobile WebsitesThese kind of mobile websites uses device detection, to route mobile users to a separate dedicated website. Creating this separate experience allows the designers to tailor the mobile Web experience, but a separate design and subdomain also opens the door to some serious problems, and only a fraction of the full website’s features are included.
Another common problem with separate mobile websites is URL management. Because desktop and mobile content live at separate URLs, device detection is required to route users to the appropriate site. Unfortunately, many websites don’t go deep enough in their URL redirection, so desktop users will get sent to mobile content and vice versa. This becomes apparent when mobile content gets shared by mobile users on social networks and then gets accessed by desktop users.
A typical page on a separate mobile website is about 687 KB and, as a result, takes about 8.75 seconds to load. While that’s over the 5-second mark, the pages still weigh less than the average size.
Responsive WebsitesResponsive Website has no “full site” link because it shares the same code base as the “desktop” website. Content on a responsive website lives under one roof, which gives the website a better chance of achieving content parity. And while responsive designers can (and do) hide content from small-screen users, responsive design affords less opportunity to fork the content and create disparate experiences, which would deprive certain users of valuable information and features.
As we can see, having Web content all under the same roof and URL definitely makes it easier to give visitors access to the content they’re looking for, regardless of the device they happen to be using.
A typical page on a responsive website is a massive 4.2 MB, resulting in a 25-second loading time.
Despite the fact that only the most patient of visitors would wait 25 seconds for a page to load, such a large payload creates real accessibility problems. Some devices won’t even render the page because it’s too large.
So, Who Wins?If there’s one lesson to learn from analyzing these websites and techniques, it’s that this stuff is genuinely hard. A lot goes into making a great mobile Web experience, and I’m personally thrilled that the Printers will take the important first steps toward making their websites mobile-friendly. Viewing the mobile web as a wonderful journey and not as a destination is absolutely essential. As we step into the deep end of multi-device Web design, we must strive to continually improve our websites and services in order to better serve our users — wherever they may be.
While the design of a Printer’s website might not determine the outcome of their success, it will certainly influence how the world perceives the Printer's qualifications and experience. And for a Web-savvy voter like myself, a website’s design might just sway my vote.

The most prominent application of smart card technology is in Subscriber Identity Modules (SIM), required for all phone systems under the Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) standard. Each phone utilizes the unique identifier, stored in the SIM, to manage the rights and privileges of each subscriber on various networks. This use case represents over half of all smart cards consumed each year.

Each year, Google changes its search algorithm up to 500 – 600 times. While most of these changes are minor, every few months Google rolls out a “major” algorithmic update that affect searchresults in significant ways. one of these changes happened last march, and affected the phone card printing industry also.
Publishing content just for the heck of traffic is not a good idea anymore. This is the main reason why Google made the update – because a lot of sites build a lot of content just to attract more visitors, here in the case of Phone card Printing Companies there are a couple of them that advertise their selfs as a card printing companies, but they are just brokers they are in the Brokerage business, they don’t really care about the quality of the content as much as we do, check our production video gallery, is just a glimpse of Who We really are you can see our different processes in action.
We have to always keep in mind that people want real, useful, quality content – and Google is just trying its best to deliver us what we desire. True, there may have been some unforseen and perhaps unjust casualties, but that’s why it’s called a "change" I’m sure Google will try to patch things up in due time.
You should be more mindful of the things that you publish. Make sure it’s unique, original and helpful to people. Don’t make articles just to suck-up to search engines as some people do. Perhaps you can be the one to rank first for that keyword phrase that you want since they’re getting kicked off the picture.
Here at Allstate Printing & Graphics, our main concern is content. Our existing and prospective Customers can benefit their self’s if asking questions about our printing business. Our brand new website www.allstateprint.com is the answer to their questions, each page was developed with one purpose in mind, "inform" we know information is a key to conversions and on the other hand our users are our first priority. Why don't optimize our content if at the end we will win. By the way, before I forget, we are still ranking high!
