Terms we're interested in:

  • FInd vs. Search
  • See vs. View

Hit button for Search

I am working on a website where the feature "Search" is part of an important
way to navigate through the website. What I want to know is what is the best
button option to use for the "Search". Which of these - "GO" or "magnifying

have more suggestions on this?

Sachin Ghodke
