This presentation outlines nine foundational search patterns, showing examples of each. It also presents the results of research on use of those search patterns or "best practices" on the corporate web sites of the largest U.S. companies. Many of these search patterns have been well known for many years. Why aren't companies using more of these "best practices"? Some ideas are discussed.
This was presented during the Information Architecture Summit 2014 in San Diego. This was a Flex Track presentation.
