Why is mobile search becoming so popular?
Mobile is an especially powerful tool for search-on-the-go, and customers can access unlimited information from anywhere.
When customers are looking for a specific food to try, a nearby auto service, or a place to get a haircut, they’re most likely using their smartphones for convenience. More importantly, built-in GPS and local mobile search tools make it easy for customers to find local businesses wherever they are, in seconds.
