What percentage of Google searches are actually typed into the search box on Google.com vs other places?
Does anyone know of any hard data on this?
Because, unless I'm mistaken, most every search not initiated in the search field on a Google page is completely unaffected by Google Instant. Off the top of my head, this includes places like
- Browser search fields,
- My iGoogle home page search box
- Google searches embeded in other websites.
Am I a freak for that behavior?
Or is this whole Google Instant panic a little overblown?
