Yahoo has long talked a big talk about making a bigger, better footprint in the mobile advertising game. Now, with Gemini, a tool the company just launched that combines native search and mobile ads, it just might be able to walk the walk -- or at least make a move on Twitter and Facebook’s fat slice of the mobile pie.

Gemini, which Yahoo yesterday announced on Tumblr, is a self-serve all-in-one solution for native advertising and mobile search. The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Internet giant is calling the “unified marketplace” tool the first of its kind to tie the two ad styles together. (Like twins? Presumably that’s how they came up with the name Gemini.)

“With Yahoo Gemini, advertisers get the performance and ease of search, combined with the scale and creativity of native advertising,” said Jay Rossiter, senior vice president of Yahoo’s cloud platform group, and Adam Cahan, senior vice president of the company’s mobile and emerging products division, in the announcement. “By bringing the two together, advertisers can now buy, manage and optimize their mobile search and native ad spend in one place — driving greater performance and higher impact for their businesses and brands.”
