Sometimes, the most important questions are the ones everyone is afraid to ask. We sought to find out what consumers on the Web really want to know about finance – the questions they're too embarrassed to ask their financial advisor.
EL SEGUNDO, CALIFORNIA (PRWEB) December 17, 2012
The Web can be an incredible tool for finding the answers to tough questions in a matter of seconds, but it can also be the source of confusing and conflicting information. As a leading personal finance resource on the Web, Go Banking Rates works to ensure readers can find all the answers to their most pressing personal finance questions – even the ones that are just too embarrassing to ask in person.
Go Banking Rates explored common questions surrounding money and finance on Google through the search engine's "Autocomplete" tool, which displays popular search queries based on words entered by the searcher. According to Google, its "algorithm predicts and displays search queries based on other users' search activities and the contents of web pages indexed by Google." In other words, when a person begins typing a query, Google will automatically populate the search bar with suggested searches based on common entries from users prior.
Google's Autocomplete suggestions range from helpful, to enlightening, to downright strange. So after investigating many of the questions asked about saving, spending, investing, and earning extra income, Go Banking Rates compiled the top 10 most strange and/or humorous questions to share with readers.
"Sometimes, the most important questions are the ones everyone is afraid to ask," explained Go Banking Rates managing editor, Casey Bond. "We sought to find out what consumers on the Web really want to know about finance – the questions they're too embarrassed to ask their financial advisor, so they turn to the anonymity of Google instead."
