Traffic from googleweblight. Thought it was referrer spam, it's not.

    Was checking my traffic stats and noticed visits from googleweblight dot com. At first I thought it was referrer spam but then looked it up and it turns out it has to do with search on mobile in which mobile search is too slow; I guess google offers some kind of app or code or whatever to help people with slow mobile devices and it comes up in stats as googleweblight.

      I've seen that in my stats too.  It's not something you can opt for.  Google offers it in countries with slow networks and will automatically convert a page into a "light" version unless the page is marked not to be converted.  It includes a link to the full version.

      It also reduces the number of ads to three. … 1428?hl=en
