Google Now Offering Quick and Easy Way To Make Your Website Mobile-Friendly

If you’re reading this, you’re probably a tech-savvy teacher or tech-savvy person in general. You may not be a programmer or developer capable of creating a mobile version of a website. Lucky for you, there are a ton of options to do just that. But I came across a free way to mobilize your website or blog courtesy of a new tool from Google.

The new service is called ‘Go Mo’ short for Go Mobile. It’s part of a partnership between Google and DudaMobile. I tested the service by using Edudemic and am truly impressed with the quality of results that came back.

Basically, you simply punch in the address of your website, click around to change colors and fonts, then get some code you can use to send mobile visitors to a mobile-friendly version of your site. Easy as pie. This could be a great tool for anyone looking for a quick way to make your site’s visitors have a better time even if they’re on a smartphone. So here’s what you do:

Go to howtogomo.com and type in your site / blog’s web address.

Choose a template, color, and a few other design options.

Click ‘Next’ and then edit the logo, background, fonts, etc.

Click ‘Next’ and sign up for DudaMobile. It’s free for the first year so you’ll know if you want to continue using it by that time. If you want to keep the site, it’s $108 for the following full year of usage.

Grab the code it spits out and follow the instructions to install it. Simple enough.

There are a ton of other ways to make your site mobile-friendly like WPTouch (for WordPress) and choosing a new responsive design for your website. But this tool from Google seems to be the easiest way to get a mobile-friendly look in just a few minutes.
