How The Mobile Web Is Changing Search Engines

Mobile web is becoming increasingly common and more accessible as mobile computing and smartphones. Mobile websites are no longer only considered for mobile telephone and smartphone use. Google’s way in mobile search is nothing new, though search engines such as Yahoo and Bing, along with central mobile search engines like Taptu, are now challenged to be recognised in the mobile environment.

This was also the result of the advent of newer handheld devices, which were more functional and capable of imitating the search features web browsers had come to expect from years of use of a PC or laptop. There is definitely a demand in the market, and the future of the mobile Internet is dictated by the fact that mobile devices are constantly generating traffic.

At present, mobile websites are also used as pipelines by mobile operators, seeking the gateway to many of mobile user activities. In comparison to mobile telephone searches there are also many basic variations. Mobile content has a different structure. It functions in no way like the extremely unstructured and complex existence of the WWW. Mobile contents must be text-based by their very existence. The slower rate of downloads and the needless and often inefficient use of bandwidth means that it does not rely on graphics, Images and Videos to express ideas.

Even advertising on the mobile Web is primarily focused on text and is seen to be an essential component of mobile ad campaigns with a rising number of text messages.
These technological technologies have also changed the way we view virtual business on the Internet. There are new words. We began e-commerce, which became m-commerce for mobile business and now people use the word t-commerce with the proliferation of tablets. Not only Apple and the famous iPads are concerned. Other Motorola Xoom devices are also good for sale. The number of tablets used is estimated to exceed 44 million by the end of 2011, according to IDC analysts (International Data Corporation). Other business insiders also found that 50% of mobile site traffic is from tablet devices for retailers.

Some claim that tablets would give mobile devices money to other people, but it is difficult to believe that people will give up cell phones, smart phones and PDAs. Tablet consumers should be online customers. The shopping experience on the mobile Internet is more predictable and familiar, since it is more like a desktop or notebook, one explanation being a big screen. This could also be a smoother purchasing process, with the experience using a touchscreen becoming more tactile.

Another is that not all retailers and other conventional websites are designed to support customised mobile web pages with mobile browsers. You can bet that it will take time to flush out and then, the familiar Web 2.0 will have a mobile web. One way to see this is as if the two media formats are still alive from radio to TV.

In historical terms, it almost always appears that modern innovations are conflicting with older technology. This is partially due to the cost of infrastructure replacement and also because some customers refuse to abandon familiar technology. We do have fax machines, but it doesn’t really make this technology all that workable. The probable scenario would therefore be that more conventional computing devices will slowly vanish, with more mobile devices retaining an interest in the mobile market for a long time to come.

Brick and mortar shops are still there, but people like the personal shopping experience and not all sales physique shop can be replaced overnight with e-commerce. However, with the evolving population and a growing computer-literate global population, it is impossible to ignore that the mobile Internet is continuous to expand at an unprecedented pace.

Another way to see it is that conventional searches are still very reactive, while mobile searches can be seen more as impulses at this stage. Mobile web searchers are currently also seeking information such as shopping venue, working hours, discount or sales updates, as well as contact information such as a telephone number so you can call a company. The current mobile user is looking for fast details. It can always be a mobile marketing aspect because of the design of the mobile device.

At the same time, both business owners (both offline and online) and customers are enthusiastic about this. The mobile Internet as they come online and expand should be taken into account by both sides of the trade equation.
