Google is trying to mobilize Indian small businesses.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Google will introduce a free mobile-website creation tool in India this year.
The article cites Google data for the proposition that roughly three-fourths of Indian small businesses have no web presence, let alone a mobile-friendly one.
Will those other countries include the US and other developed markets or will this rollout be reserved for developing markets exclusively?
Google has had similar programs in the US over the past several years.
Roughly six years ago Google introduced its own DIY, free mobile website builder and then launched a portal HowToGoMo with several partners offering small businesses mobile web development services.
