Mobile search advertising grew over 105% in the first half of 2016. Why, because it’s quite simply the best way to drive new customers to your physical business today. You can literally reach a nearby searcher while they are actively looking for a place where they can buy the specific product or service your business provides. That’s powerful stuff with Google stating 76% of local searchers visit a business and 28% buy – often within the hour. Google also states they are now delivering more than 1.5 billion in-store visits per month and it’s growing fast.
