Create a Mobile Website – Quick and Free!

I was recently presented with one of my favorite web challenges; How to do something for nothing.

One of my “starving musician” projects was selected to perform a showcase set at the Los Angeles Film Festival for music industry people. The artist’s website was designed using a large amount of Adobe Flash. The site looks great in a browser, but visiting via a mobile device delivers an awful rendering. Flash is not supported by most mobile machines, including iPhone and Android powered devices. Instead of delivering the rich media experience developed in Flash, mobile devices display the “Blue Cube” of death. Not a good first impression! [Read more…]

Optimize Your iPhone App

Does your team have an iPhone Ap that’s in the works? Make sure to get us involved prior to release! We are currently working with several iPhone Apps that are in the various stages of development and the release cycle.

While there are no real SEO consideration to be made in the design phase, choosing the correct path during the submission process is critical. You do not optimize the App for the Search Engines; You optimize it for the Apple iTunes App Store.

The challenge is describing your new App to searchers on the App Store network because of the limited amount of title, keyword, and description space provided during submission. Furthermore, after the App is submitted and released, you can not go back and change this data until you make an update to the App itself.

Clients of RightNow Communications – feel free to contact us if you are considering (or working on) an iPhone App. We can help!

Mobile Web – You Are Here

Link-A-Billy Dave @ NetraficGoogle Prepares to Overtake the iPhone

The Google Android Open Source (completely free) mobile platform picked up some major players last month including Sony Ericsson, Garmin International, SoftBank and Vodaphone. These companies will give Google additional momentum in the mobile search arena, putting them one step closer to overtaking the Apple iPhone.

The Apple iPhone is based on a proprietary system (closed source) and Apple has declined to license its software to third parties. This positions Google’s mobile software project to become the leading mobile OS (operating system).

The mobile search market share expanded in 2008 to over 9% of all web searches conducted. Business can no longer ignore the importance of having a mobile friendly website. Here is the good news – The Google Android system will display traditional web pages (similar to the iPhone) making special web pages or alternate .mobi sites unnecessary. Currently the iPhone can not render Flash, but we can only hope that flaw will be corrected.

Google AdWords Smartphone Targeting Campaigns allow advertisers to target or opt-out of ads destined to be displayed in moblie devices. You can now choose to display ads exclusively on mobile devices, create ad campaigns specifically for mobile, and get separate performance reporting for mobile phone targeted ad campaigns.

Netrafic Pay-Per-Click clients can consult our team with questions regarding mobile PPC, and Google has a nice little ditty here.
