Developing your web site for mobile devices can be confusing. What screen size should you optimize for? What device is the most popular? What content do you keep in, what do you remove? There are many decisions to make, but allow me to make one suggestion. Save yourself some heartache and instead of using a separate domain such as a .mobi version, use a subdomain such as m.yourdomain.com or www.yourdomain.com/mobile. Using a subdomain keeps your brand strong, reduces customer confusion and better optimizes your site for search engines.
