There are some specific important factors (though not that much tough to implement) that help to make the websites mobile friendly.

So to get mobile friendly websites use WML (wireless markup language) version for traditional devices and for smart phones the coding needs to be in XML or XHTML. Even table based coding creates problem in viewing the websites. So it is essential to go for a complete DIV based coding.
  • User friendly structure: You cannot expect the mobile users to elaborately browse your site. They only want to find the exact things very fast. So the navigation of mobile friendly websites is made easy. A user has to reach the destination within minimum clicks. So whenever you are building your site try to get sure that the most useful pages of your site is just a click away. But for inexperience sometimes developers forget to keep the important links in front. Be careful about this mistake.
  • Adequate use of graphics, images, flash and JavaScript: There is no doubt that images and graphics make web pages attractive. It is the JavaScript that provides various small animations or functional improvement of a plain site! But many a times all these elements create problems in viewing web pages through mobile devices! Flash applications sometimes do not get downloaded in mobile devices! So it is essential in making mobile friendly websites the developers use just adequate graphical elements. You should also verify these things.
  • Concise text content: All of us know that text contents are just very much important and valuable to search engines and general users. Through proper description you make your user understand what your business is. But do you think that a pocket device has ample scope to make a reader scroll through hundreds of lines? NO! So remember mobile friendly websites need to have very much precise and concise text that cream out your business potential to the viewers.

At the same time a website may have separate URL like http://m.infowaylive.com/ which denotes that the site (https://www.infowaylive.com/) has a separate version for mobiles. Even the user agents for the mobile usages do get instruction to show this version if a request is sent through a mobile browser.
