Seattle, WA – November 18, 2015


Today, BrandVerity, who provides services that monitor and protect brands online, released its analysis of branded keywords in paid search covering the third quarter of this year.


The report provides brands with a benchmark of what advertisements appear on the search engines when potential customers search for their brand and how much traffic brands may be losing because of trademark bidding.


Mobile has long been a growing force in the average marketer’s world. But, it is now becoming more important as the volume of mobile search increases. BrandVerity analysts found notable rises in advertising on Google Mobile.


After seeing a sizable drop in advertising on Bing last quarter, that trend continued in Q3. Essentially, in each of the past two quarters, analysts have noticed the drop of nearly an entire Ad per SERP on Bing.
