More Than Half Of Google’s Searches Happen On Mobile
Earlier this year, Google announced that for the first time, it was seeing more search activity on mobile than desktop. The caveat was that this was for 10 countries, including the US. Today, Google has now said this is the case worldwide.
Google also says it has indexed 100 billion links within apps.
It was last May when Google said that more searches were happening on mobile devices than desktop in the US, Japan and eight other countries that weren’t named. Today, Google’s senior vice president of search, Amit Singhal, reiterated that statement when speaking at Recode’s Code Mobile event, as reported by The Verge.
It is possible that in some individual countries, desktop still tops mobile. The worldwide is for all searches, from all countries, lumped together, Google told us.
