It is not possible to bring in all the content your PC shows onto a mobile web page, where space is short and every pixel counts. It’s imperative to reduce the amount of content shown on the mobile-optimized version.

By removing low priority type of content you are also reducing the page size and load time, which is an important aspect of mobile page design.

Consider Single column layouts
When a page loads on a phone it is normally zoomed all the way out so that it all fits onto the screen. The screens on most of the phones are so small that the page cannot be read until it is zoomed in. This becomes annoying for the user visiting your website.
