We run various web sites where there is the desktop version, and on the m. subdomain is the mobile version. If on a mobile, it will show the mobile version.

But because of duplication, we prevent Google from seeing the mobile version.

What are the views here on how that should be best done. The BBC does it with a subdomain, but then their brand is one of the strongest out there.

I've seen sites like Word PRess where if you adjust the width of the screen it changings the appearance via @media CSS.

So should a site be CSSd like that, or is a subdomain enough. And if a subdomain is enough, how do you get Google to see it on a Google Mobile search?

We build all our sites to be responsive, and this definitely seems to be inline with overall trends. While it does add some additional complexity, it's also generally easier to maintain. Unless you have some very specific UX requirements for the mobile site that cannot be met with RWD, that's how I'd lean.

Well ours were all built with a separate subdomains, so I think I have a lot of work on my hands to start to update them all.
