      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Making a search engine more efficient often involves streamlining the search process and reducing the time it takes to retrieve results. However, this can sometimes lead to sacrificing the accuracy and relevance of the search results. By prioritizing efficiency, the search engine may overlook certain relevant information or deliver less precise results.

    Clickstream analysis does not need users to enter their perceptions of the Web site or other feedback directly to be useful in determining their preferences.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Clickstream analysis is a method of tracking and analyzing the paths that users take while navigating a website.

This data can be analyzed to gain insights into user preferences and behavior patterns. Unlike other methods that rely on direct feedback or surveys, clickstream analysis does not require users to enter their perceptions or feedback directly. Instead, it uses objective data to understand user preferences, making it a useful tool in determining user preferences. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Companies understand that when their product goes "viral," the content of the online conversations about their product does not matter, only the volume of conversations. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false. While it is true that companies often desire their products to go viral, the content of the online conversations about their product does matter. Positive conversations can lead to increased brand awareness, customer engagement, and ultimately, sales. Negative conversations, on the other hand, can harm the company's reputation and deter potential customers. Therefore, it is not just the volume of conversations that matters, but also the sentiment and content of those conversations.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Search engines do not search the entire Web every time a user makes a search request, for all the following reasons EXCEPT 

    • A.

      it would take longer than the user could wait

    • B.

      it is more efficient to use pre-stored search results.

    • C.

      Most users are not interested in searching the entire Web.

    • D.

      the Web is too complex to be searched each time.

    Correct Answer
    C. Most users are not interested in searching the entire Web.
    Explanation
    Search engines do not search the entire Web every time a user makes a search request for several reasons. It would take longer than the user could wait, as the Web is vast and constantly growing. It is more efficient to use pre-stored search results, as search engines regularly crawl and index web pages to provide faster search results. The Web is too complex to be searched each time, as it contains billions of web pages with various formats and languages. However, the statement that most users are not interested in searching the entire Web is not a valid reason for search engines not to search the entire Web.

      European Web traffic

    • B.

      organic Web traffic

    • C.

      paid Web traffic

    • D.

      Bot-generated traffic

    Correct Answer

It is commonly used for predicting user behavior, designing cross-marketing strategies, and determining the lifetime value of clients. However, it is unlikely to be used for hiring new functional area managers as it does not provide information about an individual's qualifications, skills, or experience.

     What are the two main types of Web analytics?

    • A.

      off-site and on-site Web analytics

    • B.

      data-based and subjective Web analytics

    Off-site and on-site Web analytics are the two main types of Web analytics. Off-site Web analytics refers to the measurement and analysis of a website's performance and user behavior outside of the website itself, such as through social media platforms or other websites.

These two types of analytics provide valuable insights into a website's effectiveness and help inform decision-making for improving its performance and user experience.

    • C.

      accidental visitors

    • D.

      paid search from search engines.

    Correct Answer
    C. accidental visitors
    Explanation
    Accidental visitors are not a common source of traffic to a website. Common sources of traffic include direct links, referral websites, and paid search from search engines. Accidental visitors refer to those who stumble upon a website by mistake or through unrelated searches, and they are not intentionally seeking out the website's content. Therefore, accidental visitors are not considered a common source of traffic.

    • D.

      analyzing unstructured data with minimal effort on the user's part.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    A voice of customer (VOC) strategy involves capturing both unstructured Web data and enterprise data as a starting point, taking actions related to your market, customers, and services, and analyzing unstructured data with minimal effort on the user's part.

Unlike traditional publishing media, which often require significant financial investment for printing, distribution, and physical infrastructure, web-based social media platforms can be set up and operated at relatively lower costs. This is because web-based media primarily rely on digital platforms, which eliminate the need for physical production and distribution. Additionally, web-based media can leverage user-generated content, reducing the need for hiring professional writers and journalists. Overall, the lower costs associated with web-based social media make it more accessible to a wider range of individuals and organizations.
