SurveyMonkey Audience launched a research project to discover what regular users think about SEO(search engine optimization) basics.
The survey asked common questions like Google vs Bing but also asked deeper questions meant to understand the value of guest posts from a user standpoint. Some of the topics addressed by the SEO research are: social media (specifically Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus, ccTLD, links with or without anchor text, and the reasons user might bounce from a page.
All the raw survey data is freely available and linked in presentation, so feel free to come up with your own insights!
