#AskSearchQuality India - Google Uses 2 Different Bots For SmartPhone and Feature Phone to Solve Compatibility Issues

In a country like India where a lot of people still use Feature Phone, this makes sense for Google to detect the content differently for Smartphone users and Featured phone users respectively.

A Smartphone is a high end phone while a Featured Phone is a low end phone. In order to better server the users and to solve the compatibility issues, Google uses 2 different bots namely the Smartphone bot and the Featured bot to crawl content available on these device differently.

It is suggested to offer a responsive website for Smartphone users because they have high end devices for adjusting screen sizes accordingly while for the Featured phone users, it is recommend to have a separate mobile site like present on a subdomain - m.examplesite.com that has been specifically created to serve the Featured phone users.
