In the past I have written articles about the growing importance of creating a mobile website. I am currently in the process of creating yet another article with an update on the basic methods of creating a mobile website based on StepForth’s own work so that hopefully more people will take the time to do so. During my writing I came up with some burning questions:

  1. Once I have a website how do I ensure mobile users find it? The obvious answer was a redirection of some sort but what kind?
  2. Is there a simple answer to the most popular programming languages online?

I plowed through endless articles and tutorials that were often jam-packed with bafflegab only understandable to programmers – a group I am far from apt to join. After a while I finally came up with some answers but frankly I found the process exhausting and it became clear I had better share my findings so that others could benefit from my research. As a result, here is my latest addition to StepForth’s Web Marketing Knowledgebase: How to Redirect Mobile Traffic to Mobile Content.

I must note that I am still far from confident that I have acquired all of the answers but I did provide at least one solution for redirecting mobile traffic within each of the most common web languages; PHP, ASP and ColdFusion.

If you are not of the faint of heart and you want to dive deeper into the world of mobile redirection and design I urge you to visit the Wireless Universal Resource File (WURFL).
