More Consumers ‘Going Online to Research Products’

1st Oct 2010 News, Industry News | No Comments


Paying OnlineA larger percentage of consumers are going on the internet to research a product before committing to a purchase.

According to a study from the US-based PewResearchCenter, 58 per cent of adults have conducted a product search online.

It found that on a typical day last month, 21 per cent of people will carry out such investigations on the internet, up from 15 per cent in September 2007.

Bing representative Kristin Meldahl told users of SEO services that the search engine is already aware of how customers like to have product information and reviews available to them before making a purchase.

“With that in mind, we’ve worked hard to deliver a compelling and useful summarisation of reviews across the web in areas that people care about within our Bing shopping experience,” she said.

Last month, vice president of Bing Brian McDonald explained that the search engine is aiming to utilise the forthcoming arrival of Internet Explorer 9 to deliver “richer visual experiences” to its users.
