Announcing the initiative, Nikhil Rungta, country head, marketing, Google India, says, "Google is giving Indian businesses two options. One, create a mobile optimised site for free and second, test how user-friendly your existing mobile site is."

Businesses will be able to see how their sites look on a smartphone using the GoMoMeter tool and get personalised recommendations to create a more user-friendly experience.

The site will also provide information on current mobile trends, best practices, case studies and various other resources to help businesses develop a successful mobile presence.

"The dedicated website ( will provide all the tools and resources that businesses need to have a presence on the mobile platform. With more people using their mobile phones to explore the web, it makes sense for businesses to have a website optimised for mobile sooner than later," Rungta adds.
