The US Mobile Local Media Forecast (2008-2013) also predicts that percentage of mobile searches that have local intent will increase from 28% in 2008 to 35% in 2013, though the local total ad market (across all media) will contract in 2009 and 2010. This will be led by small businesses, which will accelerate the shift to interactive products.

The shift to interactive products, combined with a lack of traffic to fulfill budget quotas on geo-targeted search products, will cause publishers to accelerate the building of mobile sites as they look for incremental traffic, The Kelsey Group said.

"As mobile data consumption rises, we expect local marketing to be a big winner," said Michael Boland, program director, Mobile Local Media (MLM), The Kelsey Group. "There is a strong correlation between local search and the mobile use case, which will cause a good portion of the ongoing mobile application boom to focus on local."

Additional report findings:

  • The number of mobile web users will reach 95 million by 2013.

  • Approximately 15% of iPhone applications are local.
