If you have ever lived in New York City, you know possibly the worst thing about the city is finding an apartment. It is miserable plain and simple. You sort through thousands of Craigslist postings, a few New York Times postings, and answer every ad posted on every mailbox in the city only to realize 90 percent of the listings are for apartments that aren’t available, never existed, and were made up by some super shady broker just to try to get you to give them a call. Sadly, of late, more and more retail paid search ads seem to resemble NYC apartment ads than they do search ads – and it’s costing advertisers money, clicks, and customers. Running effective paid search accounts is no easy feat. You have keywords, bids, match types, tracking, and about 50 other things to worry about. Unfortunately, creative seems to be the piece that is most often, if not most obviously, neglected.

The US smartphone story has been pretty consistent for well over a year: Android is now on more than 50 percent of US smartphones, followed by iOS. All others are losing share. Samsung and Apple continue to battle for the top two OEM positions in the market (and around the world). January data from comScore largely repeat and affirm this story line. According to comScore’s survey data Android had a 52.3 percent market share in January. However the Google operating system slipped a bit (1.3 points) as the iPhone gained. Apple’s share grew 3.5 percent to 37.8 percent. The US is probably the iPhone’s strongest market. BlackBerry, Microsoft and Nokia’s Symbian all lost share, a trend that has been consistent for months. On the hardware front, Apple was the top individual smartphone manufacturer in the US, followed by Samsung. HTC and Google’s Motorola lost share — although LG (buoyed by the Nexus 4) gained. ComScore has essentially stopped reporting … [Read more...] about The January Smartphone Story: Android Slips, Apple Gains, Feature Phones Fade
