It is expected that within next two or three years, more people will be using internet from their mobile devices rather than computer. Hence, not converting your site into a mobile friendly site may make it difficult to survive the competition. Google has launched a new site to help users convert their sites into mobile sites. The product named GoMo helps you not only creating a mobile friendly site but they also offer an option to track it with analytics. The service is offered completely free to all users. However, you will need to pay to host the mobile site. As a part of special promotional offer, Google is currently offering free hosting as well for the first year.

Google even sends you a detailed report on this with their recommendations on what you should do next.
