Is there any study that shows that users are getting smarter with advanced searches and using quotes around keywords?

I found this (slightly old) study with some interesting conclusions:


Why arenít Web searchers using more advanced queries? Some researchers
have stated that Web searchers are lazy [Zapur and Zhang 2000] or that there
is a design flaw with Web search engines [Clark 2001].
