    Hi All,

    I am in the throws of creating a mobile version of our main ecommerce website using a subdomain. My concern is duplicate content.

    What is the best SEO practice for this kind of scenario? Is using canonical meta tags enough?

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Regs,
    Numb

    I can't see the advantages of putting your mobile site on a subdomain over having a
    separate .mobi domain and having a mobile device redirect.

    • Are you worried about the content from the mobile site affecting the ranking of your standard site?

    I think he is saying, that hes concerned about the rumor of duplicate content and is afraid of losing any rankings he currently has.

    Don't worry about the duplicate content.
    as long as you build a sitemap, use robots.txt,
    make sure you have the right codes in your .htaccess
    Seo your content, you'll also need to promote it and get it indexed.
    use ubl(dot)org to help get your new ecommerce mobile website listed in mobile devices and directories, and Gps locations & your website then is indexed as a mobile site.

    Hope that helps. The above stuff is just the basics,
    but helps to get you going in the right direction.

    hmmmm

    there is nothing wrong using sub-domain for mobile version of the website, Facebook (m.facebook.com) and few other big sites are also using it this way.

    What you should be worrying is whether your mobile e-commerce layout is looking correctly on smartphones.
