It looks as though more search traffic is being done by mobile devices directly to Amazon, rather than through the Google search engine. Even more reason to also set our sites up for mobile devices. This brings up the question, if the importance of ranking well in Google is diminishing, how do we get our sites in front of people looking for products directly from Amazon and elsewhere?
