Advice from Bing
Understand Mobile Intent — Mobile search is different from desktop search. So tailor campaigns and user experiences to reflect this.
Adopt Mobile Ad Products — Design campaigns that really supercharge mobile ads. For instance, both Bing and Google offer location extensions that add a business address and phone number to your ads.
Focus on Local — By definition most mobile users are mobile. They’re on the go, not sitting at a desktop computer. That means that many of their searches have local intent. They’re looking for restaurants, shops, or attractions generally within a few miles of their current location.
