On 22nd February 2016 Google matched its ad placements on desktops with mobile searches. Instead of three ads above the organic search results and a flexible number of ads to the right, there will now be four ads shown above and three below the organic search, as is currently found on smartphones and tablets.

Webshops not only register more traffic during prime time but also the best conversion rate and above-average order sizes.
