With a Single Click, Zeeblio Users can Optimize their Websites for Mobile Devices

Tripod starts the New Year off with an exciting update for customers

WALTHAM, Mass., Jan. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Tripod.com announces a new feature for the New Year offered exclusively through their website builder, Zeeblio. This will allow customers' published websites to be turned into mobile-friendly versions when viewed on smartphones and smaller-screened tablets.

True to the Tripod and Zeeblio promise, they make it as easy as possible to manage your online presence. The process of converting your Zeeblio website is a single check box in the editor that says "Turn On Mobile Layout." This feature doesn't just shrink your site; it actually allows you to customize content you want displayed when viewed from mobile devices.

Kelly O'Hara, Product Manager of Web Publishing, explained, "The number of consumers that access the web via mobile phones continues to grow, and our customers need great-looking, mobile-friendly sites to be successful. We're excited about this new feature because now Zeeblio is not just the easiest way to make an awesome website, it's also the easiest way to create a fantastic mobile site, too."

Just like the website builder, this mobilization feature has been built 100% by the team at Tripod. Looking for more information? Check out the website.
