Analysts found that 62% of those surveyed in 2009 clicked on a result on the first page, up from 48% in 2002.
(a) Might the comparison between these two samples be confounded with a hidden factor? If so, identify such a factor.

(c) What do the results tell businesses about the importance of improving their search rank?
