This is one reason Google often ranks much higher in search results. Google has spread this message of quality over quantity to many of its marketers.

MOBILE DEVICES GROW TRAFFIC

The use of mobile devices has grown exponentially in recent years. Almost every person you meet has a cellphone of some kind, most of which are smartphones. Google gets this. They understand that a large percentage of searches are coming from people on smartphones. As a result, they have designed a mobile search app that is simple but nice and user friendly.
