I received the following regarding a URL of a page recommending a feature that only applies to desktop users:
URLs redirect to an irrelevant landing page instead of the equivalent, smartphone-optimized version of the desktop page.
Thats because it was pointing to the mobile home page. I have since fixed it.
But my question is how is it possible that google could request the URL of the mobile version of the page, when the URL to the desktop version is advertised but theres no mention of the mobile version anywhere? I didn't even submit a sitemap of the mobile version of the site to google, because I don't want to waste time advertising similar content to google when I already submitted sitemaps to the desktop version of my site.
Is it a new natural thing now that google guesses the mobile version of a desktop URL and just randomly scans it to see if it is a mobile version of the same content?
And just out of curiosity, If I made a webpage in the future that is solely for desktop users (such as a multimedia gaming site with java and/or flash installed), will google try to find a mobile version of it and begin complaining about "faulty redirects" like crazy?
