The Internet is a great place to find information on everything from news and fun facts to the best restaurants and deals on those new boots you’ve been eyeing. But we all search for much more than what we share with our friends and loved ones. So it got us thinking…what are some of the secrets of how consumers search online? Enter, Ask.com’s Online Consumer Search Habits study, and the results are quite interesting!
We weren’t surprised to see that two-thirds of online consumers kept searches private from others (we get it) but we were surprised to see that 35% of online consumers kept their searches secret from their significant others!
And it wasn’t just what online consumers were searching but where they were conducting searches that caught our attention. The study showed that we value our alone time on the toilet to conduct online searches. Guess its a good time to focus!
You can see more results from Ask’s online search behavior here.
So…where do YOU search??

Who would want a night in the slammer? Apparently 60% of U.S. workers would if the alternative was to lose their employee benefits. Ask.com uncovered this little fun fact in an effort to gauge what strikes a job candidate’s fancy when it comes to deciding on a new job. While some of the responses to the 2012 State of the Workplace: Benefits and Perks study were expected, you’d be surprised at some of the other results – check it out!
It’s also clear from the survey that Americans are protective of personal time and actively seek employers invested in their health and well-being. In fact, unlimited PTO is gaining traction with companies such as Netflix, Zynga and of course, Ask.com. But how do Americans feel?
- 69% said they would be swayed to take a new job if the company offered unlimited time off
- Unlimited PTO matters more to single people (42%) than those who are married (30%) or divorced (27%)
Check out Ask.com’s infographic on the benefits of adopting an unlimited paid time off policy, a benefit Askers enjoy themselves.
