Also, I frequently work with web UNsavvy clients who have said (and I've seen them actually do this) "when I want to go to ebay I just punch ebay.com into google" evidently satisfied with the extra click. Another that I've worked for was going to ask me how to get her site 'on google' and later told me that she thought she must be all set now because if she searches for her domain name her site comes up first. Obviously Google and Yahoo! have different algorithms and indexes and I've noticed 'wildly different' results myself (i.e. a search on Yahoo for terms that would seemingly bring a particular result but being appalled and bewildered when seeing something totally illogical). Maybe none of this helps you but I thought I should point out the fact that some users actually do search for domain names.. maybe that's what you were implying by 'most web savvy types would just put the domain name in the address bar'. thanks, -Dan ____________________________________________________________ GET FREE 5GB EMAIL - Check out spam free email with many cool features!
