How Users Phrase their Queries on Search Engines

With the growing sophistication of search engines like Google thanks to their endless updates in algorithms, users are now being given a better search experience, enabling them to place a query as natural as asking a question—but how do users phrase their query on search engines?

A recent study from the Blue Nile Research shed light to the psychology of these searchers and looked into how users phrased their queries on Google. They found out that 27 percent of respondents use question formats, or phrased their query in the form of a question. These formats included “how”, “why”, “where”, “what”, and “which”. The remaining 73 percent of searchers, meanwhile, still phrased their queries in a non-question format.

Benefits of Using Online Marketing

Toronto businesses can reach consumers through a number of methods or channels. The most popular ones promoted by online marketing companies are mobile media and social media.

Owners of mobile devices are the largest growing segment of online users, and it is a broad and diverse grouping. It includes persons who use mobile devices to perform tasks, work, and shop. This group crosses age levels and includes a potentially global audience. To tap this market, a business must optimize websites for mobile device platforms.

It maximizes the opportunity to engage each visitor, and it attracts the greater number of visitors.

Making SEO in Toronto Reach the So-Called ‘Modern’ Searcher Better

Gone are the days when various facets of Toronto SEO practices like content marketing were merely intended to push products.

Putting the SEO On Target

Search engine optimisation, or SEO, is perceived as the prime way to increase a website’s visibility among Internet users. However, search patterns and update now point towards how to temper SEO for more dynamic user preferences. 

Reaching out to the ‘modern’ searcher through SEO practices relies on this basic thought: quality over quantity. By now, everyone in the search business probably knows a thing or two about keyword-stuffing—more importantly, the ills it brings. Keyword stuffing is an old, horrible SEO (black) hat trick which is exactly what its name implies: stuffing a specific page with searchable keywords in an attempt to manipulate its ranking in search engine results pages (SERPs). 

Search engines like Google have ‘grown smarter’ as well. Regular updates have enabled search engines to automatically penalise sites for keyword-stuffing. Engines also view keyword-stuffing as spam. 

On another note, one of the most definitive ways to reach the intended audience is to focus on building relationships. While links and social mentions are vital to successful search engine optimisation in Toronto and elsewhere, it’s the social connections that pay back better. Talking all about how good a product is can easily turn anyone into the dreaded “Sleazy Car Salesman” who everyone tries to avoid.
