Marketing Day: February 7, 2013

Here’s our daily recap of what happened in online marketing today, as reported on Marketing Land and other places across the Web.

From Marketing Land:

  • Google Launches AdWords Enhanced Campaigns To Reach More Mobile Users Google announced a new way for advertisers to create campaigns within their AdWords network.

The ads will come through AdSense for Content, with mobile ads provided by AdMob. In a [...]
  • Yelp Reports 65 Percent Revenue Growth But Bigger Than Expected Loss Yelp earnings this afternoon were a mixed bag (as they say), with strong revenue growth but a larger-than-expected loss. Revenue was $41.2 million in Q4, a 65 percent increase vs. a year ago. The company also posted a loss of $5.3 million in the fourth quarter. Revenue for the full year was $137.6 million, which [...]

    Thanks for the round-up, Barry; Matt told me they use your tool to pull the posts together. I tried to do some research on it, but came up with very little. Is this something that can be used by other websites?
