Back in June, we introduced Google Sitemaps, a beta program that lets webmasters inform Google quickly about new or updated web pages, and boost Google index coverage of their web pages.
The thing is, working on the Google Mobile team, you learn that desktop computers and mobile phones aren't created equal. (For one, your desktop won't fit in your front pocket.) At first, the Google Sitemaps program didn't support web pages designed to fit the smaller screens of mobile phones.
We've fixed that. Starting today, webmasters of sites of all sizes can submit their mobile website URLs to Google Mobile Sitemaps, an extension of the Google Sitemaps program. And just as cool, mobile phone users can search through these, and other mobile-friendly websites, using Google Search for the Mobile Web. Here's to the little guy (or device, rather)!
