This data will make many marketers think about whom they’re targeting their PPC campaign towards.

Tablets accounted for 18% of UK PPC retail clicks in 2012, compared to just 8.2% in the US. Smartphones meanwhile accounted for 13%, according to a report by Kenshoo.

Tablets delivered 18.3% of conversions and 21.3% of revenue, while smartphones offered just 3.6% overall retail conversions from PPC and 3.4% revenue.

The results indicate that marketers could be missing a trick when it comes to their PPC campaign if they neglect targeting tablets. Devices account for 14.1% of ad spend with a CPC of 25p while desktop accounts for 78.7% with a CPC of 36p.

Another point worth noting is that the average order value on a tablet is £88.84, compared to £73.78 on a desktop and £71.98 on a smartphone.
