According to Google’s internal data, the trend that every webmaster has been preparing for is now a reality: more Google searches are being performed on mobile devices than on desktops in the U.S. It makes sense, as more and more people are using mobile devices as their only access to the internet, and Google’s mobile-friendly algorithm is fully up and running.
But this is only the beginning. Services across the internet are beginning to cater more and more to mobile searches and traffic. As usual, Google AdWords will likely lead the way for advertisers.
The search engine wars continue. Earlier this month, we reported that Google’s search market share has fallen to its lowest level since 2008. The major impetus behind these changes involves the recent Yahoo-Firefox deal, in which Mozilla replaced Google with Yahoo as the default search engine in its browser.
The latest numbers, released by comScore, indicate that Google’s search share dropped 1.6 percent to 65.4 percent in December. Yahoo gained that 1.6 percent, moving them up to 11.8 percent. Now Google is fighting to win back some of those users.

A recent study published by WordStream determined that as of the third quarter of 2012, AdWords earn Google, on average, over $100 million every single day .
The revenue comes from 5.5 billion daily ad impressions through search, as well as 25.6 billion daily ad impressions through the Google Display Network. In total, Google earned $10.86 billion in Q3 from ad revenue alone for an actual daily income of $121 million, meaning that WordStream low-balled their estimate. The study also revealed a number of interesting statistics as well.
