From multiple screens, we move to one screen and how people use their mobile devices to search. The numbers come from a new report called “Mobile Search Moments: Understanding How Mobile Drives Conversions.” It was put together by Google with the help of Nielsen and it involves data from over 6000 mobile searches.
There’s a lot of data in this report, so I’m just going to touch on a few of the more interesting slides — like this one:
Most mobile searches are conducted in the evening. I suppose this has to do with the fact that most mobile searches are personal, not work related. (Those are happening on a PC.) You’re going out for lunch, so you search for a coupon. You’re rushing home late, so you search for pizza delivery. Once you’re settled in for the night, you search for a plumber to fix the leaky faucet, tickets to the movies, and stuff you need to buy.
