Ready To GoMo? Google’s Calling

 

By Lisa Carlin

The Search giant has launched GoMo, a Google initiative that helps you moblize your site. Come to GoMo and Google will tell you why mobile sites matter, show you how your current site looks in mobile, offer personalized recommendations, and even help you find resources that you can use to build your site. The site also has information on current mobile trends and mobile site best practices, and a directory of mobile developers.

“Join the mobile movement with us, as we work together to build a better mobile web for everyone,” says Google in the About GoMo section.
