Boy do I agree - the "thought" of Snapshot is so awesome. The execution has never lived up to my expectations. As someone once shared with me... the only time anyone is disappointed is when their expectations aren't met. Sadly - Snapshot has never met mine.
I am sorry I disagree James. Redirects to Mobi sites are now obsolete. Using responsive code and reponsive plugins removes the need for a mobi site. Responsive code uses the .com or whatever and like you says detects the browser, PC or MAC, tablet(all), phones(all) and the screen size and operating system then adjust the content to fit. NO redirects. No registering a MOBI. Google started this about a year ago, and we use it extensively and clients like it a lot. Sorry just voicing my opinion.
first a disclaimer here, I'm a vendor for a mobile app company. there are lots of arguments for & against responsive web design (http://searchengineland.com/how-common-are-seo-problems-with-responsive-web-design-152672) and how it can actually HURT your SEO but you know you have to offer something mobile. research shows most people use an app to get any kind of info compared to opening their browser on their phone and going to a mobile web site. I don't want to pitch here so if you want info on the mobile platform from Smarter Agent let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org). I just wanted to add to this that there are options and having something mobile to offer really is the most important thing.
Michael, it's a given: you must have a mobile enabled website, and MOBI is as good an extension as any. But your regular .COM website should be able to detect when a visitor is on a phone or tablet and then send them to the MOBI site automatically. It's something we've had at helpusell.com for, oh . . . 2 years.
