    Off the top of my head:
    * use a single column layout
    * minimize the use of images, external scripts and external CSS files
    * don't use on-hover graphical effects or especially menus
    * use larger than average buttons and links
    * avoid having elements that scroll within a page
    * don't use popover elements (ie lightbox / shadowbox)

    Use Simple Navigation
    Avoid the use of flash
    Reduce the use of more images
    Use simple text which is easily read in mobile devices

    Make sure it works on all mobile OS's. Keep the website slim and simple so the user isn't having to scroll left or right all the time.

    Well some of the points to be kept in mind are-
    1.iPhone and Android plays a huge market in mobile platform. So developing your mobile website should mainly target android and iPhone users.
    2.If your website is offering some sort of downloads, then one should make sure how the downloads thing work on mobile devices.
    3.The recent stats, In 2011 more than 60% of mobile traffic is for videos. So if your website displays videos and live streaming facilities, then optimize videos for mobile internet users.
