Is there any markup or meta-tag which I can place in the pages of my website to tell crawlers which pages are either for web or for mobile?

  • Is this a separate mobile site, or do you use responsive design? Commented Apr 10, 2013 at 11:05

Basically on a main website you should use metatag:

<link rel="alternate" media="handheld" href="http://phone.example.com/page.html" />

Where http://phone.example.com/page.html is an URL to mobile version of a page user is viewing right now. That's probably the easiest way to solve things. But in general you should use responsive design.
