Search, Scent, and the Happiness of Pursuit Preview

Nobody wakes up in the morning with a smile on their face, thinking "Oh Boy! Today I'm going to search a huge web site!" Instead, they arrive at your web site with the simple goal to find something on your site that's important to them. If they find it, whether they search or not, they'll be happy. When they don't, frustration follows.

Teams often turn to a sophisticated built-in Search capability to help their users find what they seek. However, our research has shown that technological magic isn't going to make the users successful. Instead, it's a simple understanding of what the users are seeking and how they look at it.
