Since the new update of the ask.co.uk website I have noticed under their recent searches section they have now put the "actual searches" people are using on ask.co.uk. Before Ask.co.uk changed the format of the searches to:
Where can I find *item* in *place*?
You can now see barely no-one actually searches the way ask wants them to they just 2-3 word phrases *not* in the question format. Ask has noticed this and changed there frontpage not to include an example of a search in the question format.
People are always in a hurry on the net and it takes more time to do a search in question format. The whole point of Ask is or shall I say "was" for people to search in question format thats where ask is flawed.
You can even go to ask.com's popular searches. The top rising search for last week was "bible". Need I say more.
