"I think most of us thought Google made the leap, but I think there are some real question marks facing them in their business," said Eric Jackson, founder and managing partner of the Ironfire Capital tech-focused hedge fund, in a statement published by CNBC.

Google still controlled more than 40 percent of total mobile advertising revenue in 2014, but lost six percent year-over-year - and competition will only increase, industry experts believe. The company has a large team dedicated to capturing mobile advertising revenue, and is making changes it believes will woo advertisers, while not frustrating mobile users.
