More on User Intent
Different individuals have different definitions for user intent. But the term is generally accepted as “The purpose or intent of a user when scrolling through the web”. A user may use the search engine to seek solutions to a problem or information regarding a certain interest. In this case, we consider the search query problem-based or informational.
With different search queries being given to search engines on a daily basis, these search engines are tasked with the job of providing the best results for these queries.
