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!
