    Interesting question. I personally think that the search quotes are shorter then if the user does a search on his desktop or laptop.

    Didn't Google partner up with Verizon and pretty much say Paid Rankings are fine on the mobile web? sure I heard something like that when Net Neutrality was being discussed.

    Mobile is a large slice of my business, I have google mobile app on my Blackberry
    walk into a business and say "niche" or whatever business they are into it and
    show them the results.
    Sale 9x out of 10.
    Mobile optimization is slightly different then web but a lot easier to rank on as people
    are still overlooking it.

    Considering my sites are only really micro niche I don't have to worry about it much, only about 5% of all visitors visit using a mobile device. While this is still a fairly large number, I need to prioritize my larger clientele base first. Mobile search is definitely going to be extremely important in the coming years when mobile technology (specifically data speeds) become increasingly superior to what we have now.

    I imagine a future when your car breaks down, you can whip out your mobile device say "tow truck closest to me" and the device or search engine will automatically sort out the results, finding the closest one to you and then placing an order with only a few prompts. Definitely going to be cool.

    Also, with your sites and mobile ready... I noticed a difference in the way my sites looked through different phones, like an evo that has a considerably large screen, and a cheaper phone that has a smaller screen, links didnt look right, couldn't really see the structure, etc... Of course this was with a blog.

    On the evo, you could really see my site, and just expand it correctly...

    My site had been optimized for mobile.
