The Google Survey - Thrown to the Wolves

7 comments

Now, clearly the results of this survey are based on search geeks not joe regular - but TW member xcandyman has graciously allowed us to "throw it to the wolves" - the TW members can be rough critics on occasion so he's a brave chap :)

Lemme know what you think of the findings...

Hi Pete

The only information I have for the submissions currently is their geographical locations which I'm compiling now and will update the report when completed.

7.5% still using Alta Vista!! - must be sentimental ;)

Interested about the sample base. Mentioned by Nick they were search Geeks but many had not heard of Sandbox all in all.

XC, can you supply some general info. about who participated?

Wow thanks again :)

Now, if only I could come up with a solution to spam, I could help G get more in tune with 84% of their user base.
LOL

300 participants is far from

300 participants is far from insignificant. Well done again XC :)

Thank you Jason it's much app

Thank you Jason it's much appreciated :)

There were over 300 participant when the report was created, I know is not an high number but it's very new. As time goes by as more submissions come in I will be updating the reports with the new data so we can better analyse the results. All the surveys on the site are always open for submissions so we can get alot more users input on the matter not just a small selection over a short period of time.

Spam is a huge problem I agree and 84% is staggering !

Thanks again

Superb work XC well done.

Superb work XC well done.

I am curious as to the number of participants though.

The single most interesting stat for me is 84% of respondents have encountered and are aware of spam in G. This, if emulated across the general populus, is a HUGE problem.
