The difference between your Internet browser’s search bar and address bar

search bar vs. address bar

I see this a lot when I visit my clients’ homes. Someone gives them a website address or they read about it in a newspaper article or newsletter. But when they go to type in the website address into their Internet browser (usually Internet Explorer), they type it in a search bar, not in the browser’s address bar.

As I mention in the video, it’s not really that big of a deal. It ultimately amounts to one extra step. But sometimes the search results confuse people which wouldn’t happen if they were using their browser’s address bar to go directly to the website.

You’ll see what I mean as I show both examples in the video below.
