Q4 2012 Online Advertising Report by IgnitionOne highlights growth in search spending and mobile advertising

NEW YORK – Research by IgnitionOne, a leading digital marketing solutions provider, revealed that year-over-year (YoY) paid search spending growth for tablets double that of smart phones in the fourth quarter of 2012 as mobile devices as a whole grew to 18% of search budgets in the U.S.

The report, which includes trends across online advertising, also revealed the Yahoo! Bing Network as a strong performer achieving their highest market share since the beginning of 2009 (24%). Total paid search spending grew at 19% YoY, representing a continued acceleration from last quarter, closing out a strong quarter.

These figures are released quarterly by IgnitionOne who powers more than $30 billion in revenue each year for leading brands through digital marketing solutions.

Key findings in the report:

• 2012 ends with a strong Q4 for search – Ending with a robust holiday shopping season, U.S. search saw advertising spend up 19% YoY in Q4. The fourth quarter also saw YoY increases in impressions (19%), and clicks (6%).

• Tablet search breaks away from smartphones as mobile devices continue to explode – U.S. YoY search ad impressions for tablets are up 212% compared to smartphones’ increase of 20%. Spend for tablets is also double that of smartphones with increases of 163% vs 87%. Mobile devices now account for 18% of total search budgets.

• Yahoo! Bing Network picks up steam – Yahoo! Bing continued to accelerate their growth in the U.S. with a YoY increase in Q4 spend of 48% compared to Google’s 12%. This helped Yahoo! Bing grab the biggest share of market (24%) since Q1 of 2009

• Shoppers splurged on higher value orders in Q4 – U.S. Retail search advertising saw YoY increases greater than average on impressions (+28%) and clicks (+10%) and Average Over Value (AOV) increased an impressive 46%. However, transactions decreased 31%, pointing to consumers checking out with fewer, but higher-value carts.
