searcher intent

The first step in improving the click-through rate of your company’s website is to identify what your customers want. These searches fall into one of four categories: Informational, Transactional, Navigational, and Visit-in-person. To determine the specific intent of your customers, use this searcher intent calculator to determine which keyword phrases you should target. Listed below are some common search terms and how to optimize your pay-per-click search ads to increase your conversion rate.


Despite the fact that users who are searching for information are unlikely to make a purchase or conversion, answering these questions can increase your website’s relevance. It will also show Google’s algorithm that your website has E-A-T, or Expertise, Authoritativeness, and Trustworthiness. For informational searches, use a keyword phrase that describes the content on your website. To improve your website’s relevance to informational searchers, include the keyword phrase in your page title, headline, or meta description.

Consumers with commercial intent are typically looking for information on a particular product or service. These people typically know what they’re looking for but want to find the best price. Because they already know the exact product they want, commercial intent searchers often use keywords to get directly to the product or service page. The searcher intent behind commercial searches is different than that of informational searchers, but they share a common goal – to find useful information.


If you’ve seen the results of a transactional search query, you know that the person performing the query is ready to make a purchase. This type of search usually yields the majority of results from online stores that sell the product. Therefore, your page content must be geared toward this type of search. To create content that appeals to this type of user, you should optimize your website for local search. Here are some ways to create content for local searches.

Before a transactional search, a user may perform a commercial investigation. This type of searcher intent is not necessarily ready to buy a product or service immediately. They may be researching a product or service, evaluating different brands, and narrowing down a location to make a purchase. The intent of this type of search is clear: they want to buy something. However, they may not be prepared to make a purchase at the moment, and are looking for information on the product, brand, or price.


The first type of intent relates to the product or service a searcher is looking for. This type of search is often branded. When a searcher is looking for a specific product or service, their intent is to find that page or website. This is a common type of intent and is optimized for the first result. Users may type in a specific company name, but not know the URL. They may also be looking for information that relates to a specific product or service.

Generally, navigational intent refers to the purpose of a search. A user will enter a keyword or phrase with the intention of visiting a website. In this case, the searcher is looking for a stadium’s address. The snippet shows the address without leaving the page, and the knowledge panel provides additional context. The knowledge panel may include a link to Google Maps, a phone number, or other relevant information. For local listings to be effective, they must be up-to-date and easily accessible from a company’s website.


To understand how Google ranks visits-in-person queries, we must first look at the user’s location. Search results with this intent are often located near the user’s location. The distance from the user’s location to the desired destination will be determined by the type of business the user is seeking. A gas station, coffee shop, or supermarket are not that far from the searcher’s location, so the results will be relevant to their needs.

When determining the search query, Google will consider whether the person is looking for information to solve a specific problem or find an answer to a question. The “Do” and “Device Action” queries are highly personalized, based on the user’s IP address and location. Google will assume that the searcher is looking for a webpage, website, or venue to solve a problem. Alternatively, they may be looking for information that will guide them to a particular location.
