I don’t think placement of action button for search form
with 2 or more search parameters has been discussed in the group yet. Everyone
in the group would have sometime worked to design search forms for intranets or
websites that have 2 or more search parameters. I find a lot of research on registration
forms but not on search forms. Luke has conducted great research on the registration
forms and the design of the forms. A friend of mine has read the book by Luke
and doesn’t think that there is any thing mentioned on search form in the book.
Search is totally different we can’t apply results from registration form study blindly
for search forms, it might be but I am curious to know if anyone researched on a search form (I am talking of scenario where we have only primary action
and no secondary action) with 2 or more search parameters in basic or advanced search. For
eg. to book a flight 2 or 3 search parameters are presented or to buy a book there can be more than 2 parameters presented for basic search and most of the websites
I found have “Search” button to the right.. Is there any study showing which
placement works best for search button and why?
