Is Mobile Search Marketing Finally Here?


Mobile search marketing expert Michael Martin says 2010 is the year when mobile takes off.

The reason is that with mobile devices, most people aren't really doing 'search' for research purposes, but doing 'finding' for something close that will meet an immediate need. That makes sense.
