However, advertisers may be doing something right, with 9.3% of click share coming from tablet devices in Australia (9.9%), more than any other market reviewd in Marin Software’s How Smartphones and Tablets are Changing Paid Search study.

The figures show for ads served by Google Aussie advertisers are paying on average 95c per click on desktop, 78c on tablet and 68c on smartphones.

Japan is the next most expensive (71c/56c/43c), whilst in Brazil the costs are 18c/12c/9c each, with even New Zealand (61/63/31) faring better.

However, clicks from smartphones are also up there globally at 11.7% behind just Japan and Singapore (both 13.7%), with Aussie marketers spending the most (8%) per device on tablet advertising of an of the other markets.

Customers are also more likely to click through on tablets (4.7%) than smartphones (4%) and desktop (3.4%) per ad served, although Brazil (6.7%) and Russia (5.5%) have better tablet figures.

Nick Gill, managing director of Marin Australia said: “Right now Australia is demonstrating a slightly different trend than what is occurring in the rest of the world with Marin’s data indicating that the average CTR in Australia for campaigns on mobile devices is on par with that of desktop computers. “However, I predict this is going to change with mobile devices continue to show great promise for advertisers in Australia given the strong CTR and lower CPC than desktop computers.

“Solid user engagement combined with favorable performance characteristics make search ads on tablets hard to resist for advertisers.”

Switzerland, Geneva, CERN, Large Hadron Collidor.
Humans are dwarfed by a giant like CMS. And yet without humans these incredible machines and cameras would not exist, and neither would the theories and ideas that make people sit down and invent new technologies for even more successful particle detection work. The fact that 10,000 people work together in harmony, driven by curiosity, challenged by seeming impossibilities, is hard to photograph. But this is precisely why it deserves as much admiration as the admirable beasts of science.
Schweiz, Genf, CERN, Large Hadron Collider.
Der Mensch ist winzig gegen den Riesen CMS. Und doch würden diese riesigen Maschinen und Kameras ohne den Menschen nicht existieren, ebenso wenig wie die Theorien und Ideen, die Menschen dazu bringen, sich hinzusetzen und neue, bessere Technologien für eine noch erfolgreichere Teilchen-Detektivarbeit zu entwerfen. Die Tatsache, dass 10.000 Leute harmonisch zusammenarbeiten, angetrieben von der Neugierde, herausgefordert von scheinbar unlösbaren Problemen, lässt sich schwer fotografieren. Doch genau diese Tatsache verdient ebenso viel Aufmerksamkeit, wie sie den bewundernswerten „Biestern” der Wissenschaft entgegengebracht wird.

Suisse, Genève, CERN, Large Hadron Collidor.L’HOMME EST UN NAIN DEVANT LE CMS. Et pourtant, sans les humains, ces prodigieuses machines et caméras n’existeraient pas, pas plus que les théories et les idées qui poussent les hommes à s’asseoir pour inventer de nouvelles théories permettant de mieux travailler à la détection de particules. Le fait que 10.000 personnes travaillent ensemble en bonne harmonie, qu’ils sont poussés par la curiosité et confrontés à d’apparentes impossibilités n’est pas facile à prendre en photo, mais il mérite tout autant d’admiration que les belles bêtes de la science.
