Mobile statistics

We heard all the pundits say it; mobile is the future. With tablets now outselling personal computers in certain categories, we can't help but be very optimistic about the future of computing on the go.

Here are some statistics from AdAge that support this:

2.3 times more
mobile searches worldwide in fourth-quarter 2010 from the prior period
30%
of overall restaurant search queries were mobile in January
17%
of overall auto search queries were mobile in January
33%
of overall "flowers" search queries were mobile on Mothers Day
6 p.m.-9 p.m.
time of day Google sees the highest volume of mobile search
1/3
of mobile search queries have local intent

If you business model hasn't built in a mobile component, you may want to pull out that drawing board again.

For our Canadian readers, Happy Victoria Day!
