    • A web search query is a query that a user enters into a web search engine to satisfy his or her information needs. Web search queries are distinctive in that they are often plain text or hypertext with optional search-directives (such as "and"/"or" with "-" to exclude). They vary greatly from standard query languages, which are governed by strict syntax rules as command languages with keyword or positional parameters.

      There are three broad categories that cover most web search queries: informational, navigational, and transactional. [1] These are also called "do, know, go." Although this model of searching was not theoretically derived, the classification has been empirically validated with actual search engine queries. [2] * Informational queries – Queries that cover a broad topic (e.g., colorado or trucks) for which there may be thousands of relevant results. * Navigational queries – Queries that seek a single website or web page of a single entity (e.g., youtube or delta air lines). * Transactional queries – Queries that reflect the intent of the user to perform a particular action, like purchasing a car or downloading a screen saver. Search engines often support a fourth type of query that is used far less frequently:

      • Connectivity queries – Queries that report on the connectivity of the indexed web graph (e.g., Which links point to this URL?, and How many pages are indexed from this domain name?).
