Therefore, it is still difficult to know what happens between users and SERPs while searching on small screens, and this means that the current presentation of SERPs on mobile devices may not be the best.
According to the findings from previous studies, including our earlier work, we can confirm that search behaviour on touch-enabled mobile devices is different from behaviour with desktop screens, and so we need to consider a different SERP presentation design for mobile devices.

So following a suggestion from the first study, in the second study we explored the effect of horizontal and vertical viewport control types (pagination versus scrolling) with various positions of a correct answer in mobile web search.
Our findings suggest that although users are more familiar with scrolling, participants spent less time to find the correct answer with pagination, especially when the relevant result is located beyond the page fold.These results suggest that the presentation of web search results for each screen size needs to take into account differences in search behaviour.Second, although people are familiar with turning pages horizontally while reading books, vertical scrolling is the standard option that people have available while searching on mobile devices.In addition, participants using scrolling exhibited less interest in lower-ranked results even if the documents were relevant.The overall result indicates that it is worthwhile providing different viewport controls for better search experiences in mobile web search.It simplifies workflows so that people and institutions use time effectively.And because Pro Quest connects information communities, complex networks of systems and processes work together efficiently.Pro Quest is committed to supporting the important work happening in the world’s research and learning communities.The company curates content that matters to the advancement of knowledge, assembling an archive of billions of vetted, indexed documents.nato in Olanda nel 1998, si propone come azienda leader nel settore IT e offre strutture e servizi ultramoderni con altissimi standard di sicurezza e privacy.Con diversi data center di ultima generazione @Inet è un Managed Service Provider di riferimento per il mercato olandese.
