There is no surprise when we say that Google is one of the main factors for the generation of traffic for the websites.

This surely will change the way people focus on their websites for sure. And what is the reason behind this importance to the mobile websites? Well, it is because the traffic generated by mobile websites is surpassing the desktop websites.
