We just recently saw Q2 come to a close, and a flurry of findings of Q2 activity in the paid search arena have been published. Three reports hit our inboxes yesterday, one from Adobe’s Digital Marketing, one from Kenshoo and one from The Search Agency – all highlighting paid search spend, click-through rates, cost per click and more by engine and device in Q2. Here’s a snapshot of some of those findings.
Spend is up across the board, according to the three studies.
The Search Agency reported a 22 percent increase year-over-year (YoY) in paid search spend. Here’s a snapshot of not only spend, but also clicks, click-through rate, and cost per click YoY.
