Hello, I recently changed my associated website to a new design and keep the same domain name. It works well for desktop versions and I can access the new site on mobile devices but I see that their are some links out on the web (google) that link to my domain name with an "m." infront of them. Generally that references a mobile device, but it doesn't link up to my website. It only leads to an error. Granted, technically its a different URL/Domain but the new mobile version doesn't require "m." that the old website did?

It sounds like you were using Dudamobile before which redirected the visitor to a completely different site(Dudamobile) The m. was a subdomain that was used to maintain your domain name on the mobile site.

In Websitebuilder the code is built in to deliver the mobile site when a mobile browser is detected. With Websitebuilder it servers both desktop and mobile from the same URL and allows the builder code to decide which to display.

The search engines will figure it out and remove the m. links as it crawls and discovers they no longer exist.
