Additional Resources
Paul Bennett has started a mobile SEO blog where he maintains a list of useful resources. Paul also formed a Mobile SEO Group where I hope others will join us in further discussion. (UPDATE: Apparently membership is currently by invitation only so if you’re interested in an invitation, please introduce yourself to Bryson Meunier.) Paul writes over at Marketing Pilgrim reporting on Mobile Marketing news with Andy Beal. He was kind enough to write an article about Winksite, “Winksite Shares Some Mobile Love“.

Disclaimer: The mention of my name in the title of a post I wrote is intended for SEO purposes only. It should not be taken as an expression of self importance. I just dropped behind the Walton’s guy again. – David Harper

Mobile SEO – June 25th at Mobile Monday NY

Several days ago Bango published statistics which confirm that the United States is at the forefront of a mobile web growth with a three fold increase in usage over the last year. The report mentions in part, “This rapid rise, taking the US to second position behind the UK, is being fueled by the increasing popularity of mobile search as a way of finding new content and services.”

Join us at Mobile Monday NY on June 25th to discuss Mobile SEO.

Mobile SEO – Optimization of SEO for the small screen. The challenges. The opportunities.

The format for this event will be a panel discussion with audience questions/discussion.

The following are some of the topics the panel and audience will explore:
