Share this article:

The University of Missouri just released an interesting study about the emotional impact of search content versus Web site content when surfing the Web.

Read more about the full study, “The Effect of Searching Versus Surfing on Cognitive and Emotional Responses to Online News,” which was recently published in the Journal of Media Psychology here. And be sure to make the most of your PPC and SEO search listings entries.
