Do It Yourself: Title Search

by Qiana Chavaia

Performing a title search is a market-research activity that enables a researcher to gain insightful knowledge into public interest. Title search results are ranked in number according to where they appear in search-engine results. These titles are what Internet browsers are searching on major search engines. Title searches provide valuable insight and will aid in the research of a particular industry or for other activities, such as publishing content on the Web and hosting events of public interest.
