The mobile version of our site is m.example.com. We followed all the recommendations on [developers.google.com
...] which include having a canonical from mobile -> desktop and rel="alternate" from desktop ->mobile
Recently I started seeing on Google analytics more traffic coming from Google to the mobile site but from visitors who are clearly not mobile (Windows OS with large screen resolution).
I dug deeper and found out our mobile site is appearing on desktop search results for certain queries. I was under the impression that having a canonical tag from the mobile page to the desktop version should eliminate that option.
I currently have an auto redirect from desktop -> mobile for mobile users but not the other way around, meaning you can access the mobile site from a desktop.
Should I implement the redirect on the other direction as well?
