Hi All,
I currently have a regular wordpress theme and some of my competition has a mobile friendly site. I was wondering if I should try to install a responsive theme to show on all devices since I know that Google wants the best possible experience for its users or should I just put together a mobile website that will be similar to mine but with redirect my customers to another version of my site instead of the actual one if they are on a cell phone, ipad... Etc. [removed] Etc does any of these methods hurt seo?

Today at SMX Advanced during the iSEO panel, Pierre Far, Google Webmaster Trends Analyst, announced clear guidelines and recommendations on mobile SEO. In short, Google recommends you go with a responsive design when possible, otherwise you can use device-specific HTML but Google asks you to take certain steps to communicate when you are using device-specific HTML.

There are tons of easy to install WP plug-ins that add a mobile friendly style sheet which also detects users on Mobile. Go with one of those.
