Abstract: Less than half of all Web pages are indexed by search engines, but 6 out of 10 Web surfers spend one hour or more using them each week.
Review by Michael Levy:
A brief article, with good graphs and charts, that summarizes some recent studies of search engine use. Only 7% of web pages are accessed via a search engine but 60% of web surfers using a search engine for at least one hour a week. Despite a majority of users indicating they are frustrated with search engines within 15 minutes, 60% still rate their own searches as "often" successful. Of course, if Google indexes only 42% of all searchable pages — and they are ranked number one in this category - who knows what users are missing.
