The Power of Local Mobile Search [infographic]

, , , ,

We’ve been really amazed to watch things changing lately. Everything is going mobile and everything is getting more and more localized. Local search is skyrocketing exponentially and we wanted to try to communicate some of the changes that are going on.

Check out our infographic after the bump.

There were quite a few other interesting stats that we didn’t include. Here’s a few

  • 73% of online activity is related to local content (Google May 07 )
  • People that use Facebook on their mobile devices are twice as active on Facebook than their non-mobile counterparts (source)
  • 32% of searchers with internet-capable cellphones search for local business information (source)
  • 60% of smartphone owners search using either their browser or an application (source)

PS. I’m pretty sure the Internet isn’t ‘over’

I’m speaking at SPhinncon on Sunday (yes this Sunday) about local. Could I use this in my presentation so long as I gave you guys full credit?


I don’t understand something – if the mobile audience is what is growing at such an exponential rate, aren’t there sources available more recent than press releases from 2009? I don’t disagree with the ideas being presented, it just seems like there would be more recent stats out there somewhere.


It’s hard to find knowledgeable people on this topic, but you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thank you for this article!

Best regards Alex
