Pay Per Clicks on Mobile

As we near the holiday season, mobile’s share of paid search traffic normally rises.  This correlates with the pay per click advertiser-sponsored programs that run on Google and BING usually for mobile searches for local businesses.

Of course, if you are paying for clicks on mobile, it is reasonable to expect that you already have a website that is optimized for mobile, isn’t it?

Restaurants are the most searched for vertical category in local mobile search, thus making a restaurant mobile website a key element in a restaurant’s mobile marketing mix.
