Is Mobile redirect still viable or are their penalties?
I am just wondering if there is any penalty for a mobile redirect.
The genesis of this question revolves around my website, which is mobile friendly, fast and responsive. It scores well in all aspects with just a few WordPress inspired hitches.
In order to get my site to score well on both the mobile and the desktop scores, some compromises in design aesthetics were made. resulting in a Mobile site I am very happy with and a desktop site that is just a little dull and not as attention grabbing as I would like.
One tool/plugin I would really like to use is a table stacking responsive tool, that will stack my columns for mobile use ( so that on the desk top I am three wide and on the mobile I am one wide) But with the optimization of minifying and moving scripts to the bottom to gain speed, the tool I had (and the others I found) no longer work)
So my question is (TL|DR) is there a penalty for forwarding your home page to a mobile version in speed or SEO function (because my last solution to get what I want is a separate mobile page but I don't want to screw myself over aesthetics)
Alternatively if you know of a table stacking plug in, html/css code or other work around that would be great too
And yes I am old school, I still use tables and do not use Gutenberg or block editing
