If we have a closer look on Search behaviors is seems that a significant number of users in Cyprus do not use Google primarily to search for products, documents or information, but the Google Search Engine (often as default home page) is replacing the address bar, meaning that instead of entering the full URL into the address bar on top of their browsers, users enter the approximate domain name (without the .com or .com.cy extension) into Google and click on the first result.
On many popular browsers such as Firefox or Chrome (sounds logical!) Google comes as the default Search Engine and any incomplete URL in the address bar will trigger the Search Engine and count the term as a Search.
