    As we all know today most of the people prefer to search on mobiles. So Is there any difference in mobile search and desktop search results for a keyword? If there is a difference in searches then what SEO strategies should a SEO expert follow?

    Not only SERP but SEO might be different between mobile and desktop searches for a keyword. However, local results are more likely in smartphones or mobiles. The best way is the best use of keywords both for mobile and desktop searches which will boost your SERP. The results are filtered differently in Smartphones. When searching for something, autocomplete results already appear before results in Mobile application Search and also interactive results are found on certain queries on Smartphones.

    No, there's not much difference between them. Both of the sources drives equal amount of responses. Just make sure that your website should be mobile friendly.

    Yes. there is a difference between mobile search and desktop search. There is a little bit changes on keyword rankings while comparing between mobile search and desktop search. Google always giving most preference to the websites which are purely optimized for mobile devices. So, if the website is optimized by AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) that website will get the top ranking results.

    There are several ranking factors that contribute to the ranking of a web page, so no one can say that any single factor can cause a website to "get the top ranking result". Please stop telling members that it will.

    When checking the same keyword on both desktop and mobile, Google will not provide the same ranking results on both device. There should be little bit difference in keyword ranking. If the website is in 2nd position on desktop, that website will be in 1st position on mobile due to well optimized for mobile devices.

    Once again, by using the word "will", you are making a blanket statement that may not apply in all cases. I'm not saying it will not occasionally happen, but you cannot say for sure that if a website is ranked #2 on desktop, it will definitely be ranked #1 on mobile devices, because you have no control over that.
