How COVID-19 is affecting Search Behavior

Talk about searches related to restaurants have vanished, but related to grocery shopping has gone up. The enquiries for putting everything up online is there since people in Non IT and Non ITES businesses are struggling way too much to ride over this tide. Time being spent on “instructional” and “how to” videos are going up significantly. Face masks and COVID also have gone up in search. 

As expected, the search trend has drastically changed. People who were ordering food online are now searching for immune boosting foods. Content related to preventive measures is being prefered by the consumers rather than entertaining content. Someone rightly mentioned that the joke time for COVID-19 is over!

But how can businesses utilise the search trend? It’s quite simple, marketers are always on the lookout as to where their target audience’s attention is, now that marketers know that the attention is on the pandemic, it’s time they adapt and market based on it.
