and explain why you think it was interesting.

Sample Answer:
I am a regular internet user. It would not be an exaggeration if I say that I am a technophile and a netizen. On an average, I spend around 10-12 hours online due to my profession in software development and personal interest. I run two blogs: one personal and another one on technology and this increase the amount of time I spent online. In fact, I learn so many things every day during my internet surfing. For this topic, I would talk about a really interesting thing that I learned many years ago which is related to human interaction in search results in famous search engines like Google and Bing.

The term is commonly called Golden triangle that represents the human eye hit maps on the search results. The search engines like Google and Bing and also Yandex and Baidu are market leaders. They serve an unbelievable amount of data to internet searchers and lots of research are conducted to present the most relevant and accurate data to the searchers.

The golden triangle is the hit map of human eye activity on the search engine result pages and this looks like the English alphabet “F”. This means all the search engine users look more on the upper-left corner of the screen and then on the right side. The eye hit map presents that the search results that are placed on the top (upper-left) have a better chance to be noticed by the searchers and thus get more traffic.

I was reading an online article by one of the prominent online research websites and that article particularly caught my eyes. This was actually a 6-7 page article and the illustration and data was so interesting that I could not leave my desk until I finished the whole article. To dig further I read some other relevant articles and blog posts and the whole idea of researching user interactivity while searching was fascinating.

The search engines are the doorway to the internet and according to a recent statistics, Google alone gets more than 200 million searches every day. Since traffic driving and doing well with websites and online business rely heavily on search engines, I often read articles and research papers about search engine optimisation. This article gave me a good insight on human interaction on the screen and thus helped me think in a different way to implement my efforts to help clients get a better position in search engines. So I would say that was a really fascinating thing to learn.
