    In extenuating circumstances, how bad is using display:none; to hide things you don’t want on the desktop version of the site and do want on the mobile version or vice versa?

    It seems legit to me. You can turn things ‘on’ and ‘off’ at will.

    Obviously this will only work for photos or style elements because I think hiding text or huge parts of a site is not only stupid but it’s against Google guidelines and will count as duplicate content.

    As long as its the exception and not the rule… what say you?


    Mhhh… i don’t think it’s a big of a deal when you use it for some features.. but i would not go crazy with it…


    I wouldn’t even call it a hack, pretty legit if you ask me. If the design calls for it.

    Example: a site menu shows at the top for a desktop site and at the bottom for the mobile site. There’s something to say about that, but if that’s the design you’re provided with, then there’s just no way around it than to hide one menu and show the other.
