  • Advantages of .Mobi domain extension

    I have a desktop/laptop business. I am searching a domain extension for my website. Today morning, I get a call from a sales person and he said that they would create a .mobi site. He also told me the advantages of this and it would increase my site's seo for my website.

    I want to know that is it possible? Can a .Mobi domain extension would be beneficial for me?

    I'm not sure if it'd help from an SEO perspective, but having a mobile version of your website can definitely help with serving well to readers accessing your site via. handheld devices. May some of our other forum mates be able to shed more light on this.

      In my point of view, the answer in a single word is “no”.
      .mob is simply in the business of trying to get you to buy something. There is nothing any more special about the .mobi TLD than any other TLD.

          Hi Jenni,

          As per my opinion .mobi domains are a must today as it's a smartphone era now. I am not sure if these domains wouldn't help for SEO purpose but these would surely help in converting the visitors to your customers.

            More and more people are logging in through their smartphones and tabs. People are also doing their shopping using mobile devices. In such a scenario having a .mobi domain would be an advantage though most established sites are still on .com domains.
