SEM on 15-20% Growth Track for 2011
Search engine marketing posted year-on-year growth of 23% and 18% quarter-on-quarter, according to Efficient Frontier. It believes that search will continue its growth in 2011 due to continued CPC increases, with spend increasing by 15-20% year-over-year in the U.S. in 2011. Efficient Frontier also predicts Bing-Yahoo market spend share will start to climb back as smaller and medium sized advertisers with increased budgets take advantage of the volume potential.

The company questions whether new generation networks, such as LTE, will be able to keep pace with the increasing demands of smartphones and consumers who watch more videos on their mobile phones.
