Hi SEO G

The legend is right there in the report you're looking at. 

 

Red = Desktop

Green = Mobile

Blue = Tablet

I thought that would be the case, but I've seen several instances where it's not the case.  Can anyone explain?

Hi Jay
You're the one who said you've seen several instances where it's not the case. I've never seen that. Perhaps you could elaborate more?

I tried uploading a screenshot but google gave me an "invalid HTML" error. Hopefully this works.... http://tinypic.com/r/jgmpvs/9
