Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you are looking for information on mobile website development or help with mobile website development, look no further. This is a quick and easy to understand guide on the ins and outs of mobile websites.

Mobile websites are websites that are optimized to fit the screen of mobile devices, mainly cell phones. If you are searching the web from a mobile device and come across a site that is not mobile optimized, you will only be able to view a portion of the site and then you will have to scroll around to find all the information you need. This can be very frustrating and annoying, especially if you are on the go and in a hurry.

If you come across a mobile optimized site when searching the web from a mobile device, the whole site will fit right on your screen and will be very easy to read and navigate around on. Most mobile optimized sites have easy to use features such as click to call, and maps that come up just by clicking an icon.

Mobile websites are important for businesses to have now a day since the number of people searching the internet from their cell phones is growing rapidly every day. There are over 290 million cell phone users in the U.S. alone and approximately 63,000 new cell phone subscribers each day. It is estimated that over 300,000 of Google's smart phone the droid are being sold daily worldwide.

A mobile websites can and should be used by any business, big or small. Many big businesses have had mobile websites for quite some time know, and they make it so much easier for people surfing the mobile web to access information about their business. Many people who are searching the web from a mobile device are on the go and often in a hurry, and they do not want to have to scroll around and search for information. They want easy to read and easy to find information and fast, and that is exactly the benefit of a mobile optimized website.

The only problem with mobile websites is that many businesses, especially locally owned small businesses, have no clue about mobile website development. It is a fairly new concept to local business owners and many of them just figured out not to long ago that a normal desktop website is a must have in the local business world. Mobile website development is different than your ordinary desktop or laptop website development, as it involves different coding and formatting and is basically considered a specialized skill.

There are different sources on the web that offer information about mobile website development and mobile website development services, but you want to be careful when choosing these sources. Since it is a fairly new idea to local business owners, there are some services out there that just white label other people's services and brand them as their own and charge an arm and a leg for building mobile websites. Do your research when choosing a mobile website development service, and stay clear of these white label resellers.
