Getting Your Mobile Website Indexed


Mobile Web Design – Helping Google Index Your Mobile Website

As with a regular website, you want your new mobile website design to found by the search engines!Newtown Christian Fellowship Mobile Website

Here are a few basics you need to consider:

  • Mobile Sitemap – a mobile sitemap contains all pages that are mobile optimized. There are a few differences from your current website but your mobile web designer should be able to take care of creating a mobile sitemap for your mobile website.
  • Accept mobile bots – make sure your robots.txt file accepts mobile search bots.  The Google bot is: “Googlebot-Mobile”
  • Mobile Friendly – your mobile site has to conform to certain standards.   Check that your mobile-friendly URLs’ DTD (Doc Type Definition) declaration is in an appropriate mobile format such as XHTML Mobile or Compact HTML.
Here is what Google says about mobile site indexing:

It seems the world is going mobile, with many people using mobile phones on a daily basis, and a large user base searching on Google’s mobile search page. However, as a webmaster, running a mobile site and tapping into the mobile search audience isn’t easy.
Mobile sites not only use a different format from normal desktop site, but the management methods and expertise required are also quite different. This results in a variety of new challenges. As a mobile search engineer, it’s clear to me that while many mobile sites were designed with mobile viewing in mind, they weren’t designed to be search friendly.
I’d like to help ensure that your mobile site is also available for users of mobile search.

Once you have made sure that your mobile website is indexed, go to the Google mobile search engine and search for your business.   (http://www.google.com/m/)
