People searching for information via public health web sites may differ in medical knowledge and internet experience. Hence, they may show different search behaviour with implications for both search engine optimisation and log analysis. In this paper we address the question of how prepositions and conjunctions are used in search, concluding that they do occur in different contexts, but do not impact a semantic mapping for query optimisation and analysis.
