Hi, I think I have a decent domain name for a mobi site. It is product related and I have just thrown up a couple of items an made a very small web site as a test. I do notice that I am getting a few visitors a day and I am not on any search engines yet so I think the domain name is pretty good. My question is how to proceed. In other words should I put up many products on the site. Use it to promote my dot com sites(which are not mobile friendly). Or just put ads up on it. I don't have any experience in the mobile arena and also I wonder once it is on the search engines how will it fair compared to dot com names? Do the search engines take into consideration if a person is using a mobile device to search or would I just be competing against normal search engines for regular computers. Sorry for the long post any insight would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. RWguy

Google for example can show a different result set to mobile users compared to standard search. On my PDA when i use google the search box alows the user to search the mobile web (beta)

The advantage to this is results are to sites that are mobile device friendly. It makes sense for users to use this option because a high percentage of pages on the web are messed up beyond use when viewed usign a mobile device's browser.

keep your dot mobi as simple as possible and use it to draw attention to your larger sites; perhaps maybe for branding purposes and to establish your points of contact. I wouldn't get all caught up in offering transactional based / E-Commerce from your mobi. i recommend getting mobis mainly for defense of brand.
