Your Search Intent Guide

It’s that time…

If you’re new here, we talk about SEO stuff every Monday.

You’ve probably heard about search intent a time or two. We’re gonna break it down with a quick and easy guide.

What the heck is search intent?

Think of search intent as the goal of the person using the search engine. Search intent is crucial for a solid SEO strategy.

There are 3 types of search intent:

  • Informational Searches: Let’s say you want to build your own planter box. You’d likely search for “how to build a planter box.” This type of search is informational. Think of it as the research phase. You likely aren’t converting with an informational search.
  • Transactional Searches: Ok, now you’re ready to make a purchase. A transactional search would be something like, “best coffee makers under $100.”
  • Navigational Searches: Let’s say you want Lululemon shorts. You’d likely search for ‘Lululemon shorts.’ This is a navigational search because your user already knows where they’re going.

Google put their own spin on the original search intent distinctions with the following:

Know (informational), Do (transactional), and Go (navigational).

If you wanna nerd out and see how Google defines these 3 types of searches, head over to the quality rater guidelines here.
