Google Inc.'s search-advertising prices plunged 12 percent in the first quarter from a year earlier.
One of the factors that depressed Google's cost-per-click prices is the growth of mobile search: ads designed for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
Mobile-search ads are currently much cheaper than their conventional counterparts, with the average cost-per-click of a smartphone ad running 53 cents in March vs. 60 cents for a tablet ad and 76 cents for an ad that runs on a traditional computer, according to San Francisco-based Marin Software Inc. Those prices are counterintuitive considering that smartphone users were 72 percent more likely to click an ad than a desktop user in 2011.
