GOALS - To level the playing field with large businesses who have large advertising budgets, to create fair competition among large and small businesses, and to create jobs and improve the economy through the growth of small businesses. This will be accomplished by networking with other small businesses.
IMPLEMENTATION - Each small business will create its own MOBILE SITE FINDER by exchanging its logo, URL, and product list or product details with one small business at a time, thereby adding new listings to its own MOBILE SITE FINDER and gaining exposure one link at a time.
Your listing shall only contain small businesses which; 1) sell tangible products or 2) accept donations for tangible products, and only when a tangible product is capable of being shipped, downloaded or printed. Coupons, gift cards, discount cards, and the like are not tangible products. Small businesses which offer services, but do not offer any tangible products meeting this definition are excluded from entry!
MOBILE USERS BENEFIT - This will allow mobile users to migrate from site to site within our network by hopping from a home page on the first site to the MOBILE SITE FINDER at the same site, then to the home page on a second site and to the MOBILE SITE FINDER at the second site, and so on.
Because sites are cross linked, the mobile user will be provided with a returning path, while avoiding the negative pitfalls mentioned previously. Or, the mobile user may choose to bookmark a favorite or more comprehensive MOBILE SITE FINDER as his or her primary source to search for products, also avoiding the pitfalls.
MOBILE SITE FINDERs may also be expanded to identify websites whose products are made in the USA or manufactured in a particular State. It’s absolutely FREE to Mobile Users!
SMALL BUSINESSES BENEFIT - Small businesses will receive greater exposure through networking and will reap the benefits due to an increase in the number of external links with the new found freedom of networking and advertising while catering to mobile users and supporting other small businesses. It's the American way!
Small businesses have the ability to choose which listings to add or delete, with the understanding that if you delete a listing from your MOBILE SITE FINDER, your listing will probably be deleted by one or more other sites in return. It’s Voluntary and absolutely FREE to Small Businesses!
LISTING QUALIFICATIONS - To qualify for an exchange of a home page external link, all webpages shall be responsive-design (mobile friendly) and load rapidly and no static or dynamic ads will exist on any of the webpages, especially those with links to another URL, except as allowed for payment processing.
When a business chooses not to conform at a later date, the corresponding listing in each MOBILE SITE FINDER must be deleted in its entirety.
TEST RESPONSIVE DESIGN
- Copy and paste the website URL (home page) into the Google search field,
- Select “Develop” > “Enter Responsive Design Mode” and view various webpages through a selected mobile device,
- When finished select “Develop” > “Exit Responsive Design Mode”.
TEST PAGE LOADING SPEED
- Click HERE to test,
- Copy and paste the website URL (home page) into the mobile test field, then click the arrow to test,
- Review the test results,
- Test additional webpages which are likely to be slow,
- Accept this listing or respond by email with the reason for denial to the requester.
CERTIFICATION - Upon the first approval of a listing, a small business will receive its MOBILE SITE FINDER certified button and logo in PNG format from the small business that sponsored entry. The button (shown on the homepage of this website) shall be inserted near the top of your home page at its present size with a link to your Mobile Site Finder webpage. The logo (shown above) shall be inserted near the top of your Mobile Site Finder webpage at its present size.
A showing of only a few listings to mobile users will indicate that either; 1) The small business is new to the network of MOBILE SITE FINDERs, or 2) The corresponding certification has been revoked for the small business.
A list of revoked certification of small businesses may be used, which shows an intention to be non-compliant. A disapproved status is not necessary, because a small business may make improvements to its website to gain entry.
REPORT NON-COMPLIANCE - Any mobile user may, and any participating small business shall, report any participating small business which is not in compliance with these guidelines in order to develop and maintain the public trust in regard to our testing and certification procedures and in regard to the overall usefulness of our networking strategy to serve mobile users.
