More of total organic search share is being taken up Google, as search traffic continues to rise on mobile devices, says Merkel owned agency, RKG.
As the paid search click slows down, the organic search visit has magnified in the recent quarters. The organic search visits saw a rise of 12 percent in the second quarter of 2015, most of which can be attributed to the use of smartphones, as they bring in most of the search visit gains.
The influence Google holds can be seen in the 89 percent of mobile organic search visits in the second quarter. Whereas, Yahoo and Bing had 7.1 and 4.1 percent respectively, of the overall organic search visits.
The report by RKG also indicated that although the search traffic has gone up on smartphones, advertisers are still hesitant to spend on mobile traffic as they do on desktop. The report has produced a data that shows how in the second quarter of 2015, 43 percent of Google searches took place on tablets and cellphones. This is lower than the 47 percent of Google organic search visits.
