So simply my question is; Do people google their question before they ask it on this site? Because, seriously, there are a bunch of questions that can be simply resolved with a quick search on google or any search engine of choice.

This question is marked "community wiki".

But what I don't get is why they could go through the trouble of asking somebody on this site while they could go search for it themselves and get an answer a lot faster.

Is it the fact that some people don't know how to "correctly" use a search engine?

And more often than not, Google has the answer.

I do and it appears that most "regulars" on this site do. It's usually the new people who have just signed up that fail to search for duplicate questions before they ask their own.

I try to, but sometimes I get fed up with searching for everything.

I search as much as i can first but there seem to be a lot of people who can not be bothered (cba) to search for themselves and just go and ask people on here...

Absolutely. I always do my research before I ask a question here. I agree with Daz though it seems to be all the new people who just ask random stuff or ask without doing any searching. It is so annoying though.
