52% of search is local from mobiles and 20% overall

It has been announced this week by Bing (Microsoft) that at least 52% of searches on mobile phones have a local intent, i.e. looking for a plumber in a town x or perhaps a restaurant in town y. Whats more Google have also said that at least 20% of all searches are now local and its growing all the time.

What's the message here, well if you do not have a local specific search campaign you should have and you just know I am going to suggest that Local Link Up is the best placed service to offer you that.
