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.

So drmark and Victoria Lynn both suggested I ask this question. It seems like a good question. I assume it will open the doors to a lot of nasty critical comments. So I thank you ahead time, I am sure we will learn something from each comment.It should be noted that I have not done one thing...
