It is reported that Google announced that it would stop its mobile advertising company AdMob’s mobile Web advertising service.
In 2009, Google acquired AdMob with $ 750 million in order to achieve its expansion of the search advertising business in the mobile applications and mobile network. However, in the run-in period over the past year, Google halted certain services of AdMob because of the overall strategy. For example, Google stopped AdMob’s download and exchange of advertising business a few months ago. Today, AdMob’s mobile Web advertising service is about to become a history.
At the same time, Google announced in a timely manner that AdMob will focus on service mobile application developers, and mobile search AdSense will be responsible for mobile network publishers. Even after more than a year of running, Google still needs to clarify the overlap business of AdMob and AdSense, but eventually made the above decision.
As to the mobile application advertising, all participants of AdSense for Mobile Applications Service will be transferred to be in the charge of AdMob. Google said, AdMob is now the major advertising solution of mobile application developer.
Google said that AdMob’s support fro the older WAP mobile site will be terminated on September 30. For the site and advertising that can be browsed by smart phones and other advanced devices, AdMob’s product support time will be slightly longer, but eventually phased out.
AdMob and AdSense are overlapped in the features of the products. It is also reasonable that Google makes the necessary cuts or consolidation. For example, Google announced in the last fall, AdMob network’s iPhone and Android application developer is not available in AdMob advertising, its advertising is still on the show of the AdSense.
Despite earlier reports say that the integration road of AdMob will not be easy, but the AdMob still has a steady stream of customers. Although it is not clear how much trouble Google’s current adjustment will bring to the application developers, but it is certain that Google’s AdMob and AdSense business will not be affected.
In the April, AdMob’s ads request in a day is more than 2.7 billion times, 70 million times more than in January’s statistics. The number of supporting mobile sites and applications is 80,000, 30,000 more than the number in January.
AdMob also mentioned the potential of the Tablet PC advertising market. The advertising request from the Tablet PC platform accounted for 25% of the entire mobile platform.
