[Objective] This paper aims to analyse user behavior based on search engine log. [Methods] Analyse user behavior from query string, query methods, query subjects, user click behavior and user types by word segmentation, statistical analysis, clustering analysis and visualization. [Results] Search users prefer to use 2-5 Chinese noun phrases; Use less colloquial query strings; Dislike using advanced search functions; Perfer to use various query strings; There are peaks and valleys in the number of users. Up-tail phenomenon is confirmed once again in this research. [Limitations] The amount of data used in this paper is not big enough and details of user information is not considered. [Conclusions] Analysis on search engine log is beneficial to acquisition of user behavior characteristics and improving search performance.
