Word Search Meta: Puzzles that Inform.

The old-fashioned Word Search puzzle is instantly familiar. Word Search Meta takes this fun challenge one step further, by collecting feedback about each of the items hidden inside the puzzle. Use Word Search for Surveys to measure brand affinity, customer satisfaction, purchase intent, awareness, and many other insightful topics.
