It is therefore absolutely essential that a company website
appears on the first page of results when a user initiates a
search request with keywords that are related to that company's

Researchers from the Penn State School of Information Sciences
and Technology (IST) found that people are getting frustrated
with search engines. Typically surfers visit only the first
three results from a query. Dr Jansen and his co-author Professor
Amanda Spink analysed more than 450,000 web queries submitted
to the AlltheWeb.com search engine in a 24-hour period. More
than half of users checked out only one result and more than
80% stopped after looking at three results.
It will make sobering reading for businesses using search engines
to market themselves.
The findings illustrate the importance of having a good ranking
on a web search engine.
The research also found that half of all users entered only
one query and over half of those viewed just one page of results.
An additional 19% went on the second page but fewer than 10%
bothered with a third page.
It suggests that surfers are focused on what they want to find.
