Keyword Phrases Is there a study about common folk using quotes? metakomm msg:267947 7:35 pm on Nov 13, 2005 (gmt 0) 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]. alexn msg:267949 2:02 pm on Nov 17, 2005 (gmt 0)
