NEW YORK, Jan. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Yodle, a leader in
localonlinemarketing, today announced that the company has won the 2012 Google
Adwords^TM Premier SMB Partner Mobile Champion Award. Yodle was selected to
receive the award at the recent Google AdWords Premier SMB Partner Summit in
Mountain View, CA, in recognition of the company's industry leading focus on
optimizing mobile ad spending. This award comes less than a year after Yodle
first rolled out its combined mobile media buying, ad distribution and website
optimization solution to its 30,000 small business customers.

"According to industry analysts BIA/Kelsey, over half of all local search
traffic is expected to be on mobile devices by 2015. We are committed to
developing an industry leading mobile product to help our customers benefit
from this shift in consumer behavior," said Court Cunningham, CEO at Yodle.
"We're honored to be recognized with the Google AdWords Premier SMB Partner
Award for our initiatives in mobile, an area where we have established a
strong leadership position."

Yodle was designated as "Mobile Champion" from amongst Google's 16 Premier SMB
Partners, based on the company's particularly concentrated initiatives around
mobile AdWords spend. The Google AdWords Premier SMB Partner Program (PSP)
connects Google's trusted and experienced AdWords partners with small- and
medium-sized businesses that want expert help in creating, managing and
optimizing their online advertising campaigns. In addition to in-depth AdWords
expertise, PSP partners provide full-service campaign management, detailed
reporting, one-on-one customer support, and broad marketing guidance to help
advertisers make the most of their campaigns.

"The Premier SMB Partner Awards recognize the exemplary work that our partners
do every day with small businesses," said Sher Khan, Strategic Partner Manager
at Google. "One out of five mobile searches are local, which means being
present on mobile devices is crucial for small businesses. Yodle is doing an
excellent job in helping small businesses create a presence on mobile devices
and therefore helping these businesses grow their customer base."
