We knew the day would come and now it’s here. New LSA consumer research shows that mobile devices (mostly smartphones) are now used more often for local search and to find local information than PCs.
Here’s the specific finding: 60% of US adults now typically choose smartphones or tablets over PCs to find information before buying products and services offline.
Greg is talking about a study done by the Local Search Association. You can download it here:
