Hi Folks

I've also noticed that Adsense offers ads for dotmobi - I'm just starting out with mobile, but have mature xhtml/css/php sites. So some quick Q&A's please:

1. Which is best - to create new dotmobi or to use current server mobiledotmysitedotcom?
1.a. If new dotmobi, I'd be duplicating content?
1.b. With mobiledotmysitedotcom, I'd have to remove current Adsense ad, and replace them with PHP dotmobi ads?

2. Could I just create a link on my current site so that a CSS mobile version is used to structure content?

3. Revenue wise, which way is best?

Thanks - W.

As I understand the announcement, the program is for sites intended to be read on mobile devices, not for .mobi TLD sites specifically.

Not sure what you mean by "PHP dotmobi ads"?

If you use a single domain name to serve both desktop and mobile users, that would almost always need more than just a style-sheet change, in any case. You will usually be serving more terse content, not just changing presentation style. You will need to detect whether the user is on a mobile device, and serve the appropriate pages.

1. I would suggest mobiledotmysitedotcom for the simple reason as to avoid duplicate content.

adding this code on ur main site helps prevent duplcate content flagging:

<link rel="alternate" media="handheld" href="mobiledotmysitedotcom" />

2. u will have to code the whole thing over again, and will not be able to use the current site as a mobile site.... takes more than just CSS to adapt here.

3. Revenue, not sure,.... if ur mobile content is helpful for people on the run,... revenue will be good.
