In addition to core search functionality, Taptu can now offer mobile partners, like itsmy.com, mobile search sponsored links. This provides partners with a new incremental revenue stream, and gives advertisers access to high-value and young audiences
As a pureplay mobile community (we) wanted to work with a company that really gets mobile and understands that desktop search isnt mobile search, says itsmy.com CEO, Antonio Vince Staybl. Taptu is made for mobile and we love its unique and social way to search the mobile web. Thats exactly what we were looking for in a partner and thats why we have replaced our existing provider.
