-- Germany has lowest CPC in EMEA, while in the UK mobile phone devices now account for 31% of paid search spend and clicks
LONDON, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital marketers in Europe Middle East & Africa (EMEA) generated the highest click-through rate (CTR) on record for the region in the first quarter of 2014, up 29% year-on-year (YoY) to 2 percent. Paid search revenue rose 6% YoY with spend up 2%.
The findings come from a new quarterly paid search study released today in the Q1 2014 EMEA Search Advertising Trends infographic from Kenshoo (www.Kenshoo.com), the global leader in predictive media optimisation technology.
"The rise in CTRs in EMEA underlines the strength of paid search for marketers in the region. It's down to the fact that marketers are getting more sophisticated in their use of the paid search advertising, tailoring their messaging to engage and captivate consumers," said Rob Coyne, Managing Director, EMEA, for Kenshoo.

Cost per click
At a country level, the data shows that Germany is currently an enviable location for paid search marketers, with cost-per-click (CPC) rates now among the lowest in the region at €0.28 and a higher CTR, 2.8%, than either France or the U.K. Finland was found to have the highest CPCs at €0.84.

In total, mobile devices (phone and tablet) now account for 31% of U.K. paid search spend and 31% of clicks.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts.
