Creating a mobile website using Google is possible thanks to its mobile website builder. Currently, there are many mobile website creators on the market that have both a free version and a paid one. Google offers this service aimed at consumers and businesses who want to create their own mobile website in an easy and fast way. No programming knowledge is required, so non-coders can also create their mobile website with this tool. Furthermore, this tool is completely free and it’s available on Google’s website.

Google’s mobile website builder has a wide variety of templates classified according to professions and activities, so any kind of company can also expand their online presence through mobile devices.

After testing the first template suggested by the builder and selecting a color, you can customize your mobile website. Firstly, you have to choose the template that better fits your business. You can choose between a variety of templates or start from scratch to design your own website.

    The mobile website builder by Google doesn’t have very good templates, has it?

    It’s quite simple this editor, doesn’t it?

    • David Peterson 07/06/2012 at 02:41:28 Responder

      Yes, I think it is very simple and doesn’t have a lot of features… it’s better try a mobile website builder…

        I think it’s only for informar mobile websites, for professional ones is better choose a mobile website builder.

    Good point of view for this mobile web builder! but anyway I think it’s not the best…

    As a user of the Google Mobile website builder I have to say I can’t complain but the templates could be much better…even though i have seen worst ones.

    Can’t complain for a free builder, not bad.

  9. Serenade 20/12/2012 at 04:43:31 Responder

    looks a bit confusing?

    I like the GOMO thingy, so useful to check your site.

    is gomometer a builder too?

    • Helena 20/12/2012 at 04:48:17 Responder

      Hi Greg,

      No, it’s not. The Gomometer is a tool that shows you how your site looks from a mobile device, but it’s not a converter.

    gomo meter is great, very easy to use and shows how your web looks for real!

    Google has the most excellent website builder.

    Once again Google doesn’t cease to amaze me. A free mobile website? Hell yeah!

  19. Cho U. 21/08/2013 at 03:56:51 Responder

    Yeah, it’s free but those templates don’t look so good.
