Intent Agency Vilnius is now official AdsHOTEL partner, which mean we finally and as the first in the Nordics and Baltics can help our clients advertise on Google Hotel Ads, something that has been sort of exclusive for the large OTAs like Booking.com and Hotels.com ect.
On January 28th Intent Agency had the pleasure of doing a small AdsHOTEL/Google Hotel Ads morning event for 20 local Vilnius hotels.
(and the venue was of course the newly opened and very nice restaurant Gaspar’s – its a must try when in Vilnius.)

My business partner and collegue Domas Vysniaukas kicked of the event, I followed with some slides on the big changes, over the years, in the Google SERPS and the huge challenges that hotels are facing.

now they have a combines share of over 30%!
Bing (Microsoft sites) is now at 12,1% and Yahoo! sites is at 18,3% making the

I have already been writing several times about Bing and Yahoo gaining extra shares of the of searches in the US and this month they are again on the move while Google goes down a bit!

Bing (Microsoft sites) is now up at 11,8% and Yahoo! sites gained 0,8% to now 17,7% making the combined “MicroHoo” closer to the 30% – at 29,5%!
And Google lost a bit for the second month in a row -  now down 0,7% to a still massive 64,4% – but is still makes it more and more important to remember both Bing and Yahoo! in the Search Marketing activities!

AdWords for mobile

May 4th, 2010 | Posted by Niels Klintø in Search marketing - (0 Comments)

Google is updating the AdWords for mobile interface and it looks really nice, but there is a couple of limitations…

First of all its only for Android, iPhone and Palm, so no Nokia…  and for now its only for accounts managed in US, UK or Australian English…
For now this new interface is only available for a small amount of the English language advertisers, but if you wanna push your Android, iPhone or Palm to the new AdWords for mobile version go to:

The article at the official Google AdWords blog has a video describing some of the nice features of this new AdWords for mobile interface – check it out..

With Bing and Yahoo! again moving a bit forward and closer to 30% of share of searches in the US according to comScore, it just makes more and more sense to include them in the US search advertising campaign – if you didn’t already do it…

Bing went from 11,5% to 11,7% and Yahoo! from 16,8% to 16,9% giving MicroHoo a combined share of 28,6%.
And Google went a little down to still a massive 65,1%

It’s not going as fast as it has been, but comScore reports that February was in fact a month with a small growth in Bings share of searches in the USA.
Bing (Microsoft sites) went from 11,3% to 11,5%, but unfortunately Yahoo! went 0,2% down, so MicroHoo had a unchanged share of the searches.. still there’s a combined share of 28,3%!
And yes, Google went 0,1% up to 65,5%.

comScore reports that January 2010 was another good month for Microsoft Bing with a small increase their part of the US Search traffic.
Bing added another 0,6% and are now at 11,3%, whereas Yahoo! goes down 0,3% to 17,0% – interesting is though that the combination Yahoo!+Bing adds 0,3%.
And another interesting thing is Google US Search share going DOWN o,3% to still a massive 65,4% – still very impressive!

Got an email from CoffeeCup Software the other day telling me that buying their sitemap module will help my search rankings…  hmm…

Ok, they dont go into details, but a catchy top of the email looking like this:
CoffeeCup Software is overselling sitemaps

Dear CoffeeCup, nice Sitemaps or cool styled sitemaps might be a good idea because of several reasons, but I have NOT seen any proffs of a sitemap helping on search rankings.
