Hi Danny,

I think it's just another indicator that Google are addicted to "Fresh". The fresher the content the higher it ranks (they've been doing that for a long time). Google want to see signs of life as opposed to "static" sites. Also, I guess if you have your mobile in hand and act on information you just searched for, you may end up wasting your time if the information is out of date. This will be good news for VR owners and managers that have adopted a working content strategy.

Interesting. I don't see why they'd need to display mobile results that are more up-to-date?

I'd take a guess it's because people on their mobiles perform more searches for things like news and social media - stuff that's happening now - but if you're searching for a holiday, you'd probably sit at your desktop and you wouldn't want social media & news stories... So perhaps this is good news for VR?
