I found some posts online from a few guys blogs talking about mobile websites. I never even consider having a mobile version of my website and thought they were "apps" for the iphone. Anyways after reading the various blog I learned a lot and thought I would share with you all some of the highlights -
1. Google has a seperate index for mobile sites, and it hasnt been overloaded with sites yet so its much easier for you to get listed at the top of results with your mobile site by mobile users.
2. Mobile sites dont have to be "apps" they can just be loaded like a regular site but they are condensed down and made easier to read text, click to call, click to text ect on mobile phones which wont discourage your mobile users.
3. Mobile sites can be developed to work inconjunction with your existing site so you dont need another hosting plan, another domain ect and getting a professional mobile site is a TON less expensive than a regular site. I used http://www.fetchmobi.com
- its only $7.49/mo and covers litterly everything you need. including the design plus edit capabilities.
So in summary for a few bucks a month you can expand your business to be both desktop and mobile phone friendly but watch out I had to do my shopping because a lot of those sites similiar to fetchmobi.com charge upwards of $200/month lol so do your homework!
