Names Sites Top Keyword Searches

  • December 19, 2013

Sites whose names form their URL were the top 10 keyword search terms to data of 2013, per Millward Brown Digital. Surprisingly, the top searches people conducted were for sites they could have easily just typed into the navigation bar on their computer, including searching for the word “Google" or "YouTube." In ranking order, the words are facebook, youtube, google, facebook login, yahoo, yahoo mail, craigslist, facebook.com, ebay and www.facebook.com.

Does auto-complete and auto-suggest search engine query tools make people lazy when it comes to searching for information online? Click on the microphone in Google's mobile search app and ask "how deep is the Atlantic ocean" for a nearly instant estimated answer of 8,605 meters based on results listed in query results.
