Mobile Website Project: New Domain

My 4-year old project to keep an updated list of useful mobile websites continues to draw a decent amount of traffic (somewhere between 1000 and 2000 page views per day). I’ve also managed to reach the top search result for “mobile websites” on both Google and Live.com. (Yahoo and Ask are not keeping up…come on guys!) This week I’m migrating the list from its current home on “www.cantoni.org/palm” to a new domain “cantoni.mobi”.

Ask Mobile Search

Ask has just launched a mobile version of their site at m.ask.com. I played with it for a bit on my Treo 600 and it seems to work pretty well.
