Digital Marketing Infographic Series: Diving Into Search Behavior [Infographic]

| April 3, 2013 | 5 Comments

Here is the first of a three-part series featuring compelling infographics based upon digital marketing research data. The graphic below answers the quintessential marketing questions, “What do people search for?”, “Who looks at second page SERP results?” and “Are paid search listings effective?” The results may be SURPRISING!

Here’s what the study uncovered:

  • More than 40 percent of Internet users search for e-commerce-related terms
  • Around 65 percent of users do not click on search advertisements; while 50 percent don’t even know the difference between paid and organic search results
  • Believe it or not, but 90 percent of users regularly check the second page of search results; and that increases with age and education as well.

Check out the complete findings in the infographic below!
