I was looking everywhere (as well as on Google's blog) and could not find a straight answer to this question: which URL is the best for mobile from an SEO perspective? Is there a difference between:

m.company.com company.com/mobile etc...

m.company.com is a preferable and relatively common approach.

  • If word "mobile" isn't a target keyword itself so don't care about SEO and care about users.

There's also company.mobi but if you really care about users, then cater for every permutation that users could try...

  • m.company.mobi
  • mobile.company.mobi
  • wap.company.com
  • wap.company.mobi
  • etc

  • company.com/mobile [404's should always be handled by all your domains, so directory's don't count here]
