Today, dotMobi announced that our goMobi mobile website builder is a part of the Start Mobile initiative from Google. Start Mobile is designed to ensure businesses in German-language markets can quickly and easily join the mobile Web revolution. goMobi is available for German-language speakers through Sprit, which is offering a 40% discount on a one-year goMobi subscription as well as a free goMobi trial.
Google always notes the importance of mobile-specific websites, reporting a 166% increase in mobile searches for top retail brands during the December 2011 holiday season. Recently, Jason Spero, Head of Global Mobile Sales and Strategy at Google, said that approximately 15 percent of all Web traffic is now mobile. That percentage means if you do not have a mobile site, you are losing Web traffic that is equal to closing your website one day each week.
In a recent blog posting, Google highlighted the importance of mobile performance; to meet the expectations of mobile users, all goMobi sites are fully optimized for mobile performance.
dotMobi COO Eileen O’Sullivan said, “Germany has always been a strong mobile market for us, so we are delighted have goMobi join Google’s Start Mobile initiative. goMobi is fully localized in German, and is a great option for customers to get up and running with a high-quality mobile site in minutes.”
