How People Search Online [Infographic]

by   |    |  5,410 views

In the first infographic of Levelwing's two-part series, we learned about who uses search. The second infographic, below, shares data regarding how people search.

Some 91% of online adults use search engines to find information on the Web. And, among search users, 91% always or most of the time find the information they are looking for.

Most of the daily queries on Google have been seen before; only a small percentage (16%) hasn't.

So, what kind of information do people look for most? People using smartphones for searches mostly look for news (57%), restaurants (51%), and navigational information (51%).

After conducting searches, some 86% of searchers have learned about something new or important that "helped them or increased their knowledge." Half have found obscure data that surprised them.


To find out more about how people search, check out the following infographic:

    Are there any reason why people prefer to use a particular device to search for one information over the other?
