    Here is a quote from the Sedo email I received today

    "More than 50% of internet users search by typing a search term or keyword (e.g. "news) along with their trusted extension (.e.g. .uk or .com) directly into their browsers"

    Who said parking revenue is going down ? :rolleyes:

    Discuss :confused:

    I saw that and was about to post the same, it is embarassing.

    Can a mod move this to the sedo forum and let them explain their research, as it does say 'Studies have shown...'

    Hopefully thats a proper study, not some toddler using a vtech in the sedo office.

    Anyway, over to Sedo for the answer...

    Agree. That's got to be wrong – would be nice if they referenced their source.

    most users now type 'keyword' or 'keyword+.co.uk' into the Google search instead of the browser address bar.

    Keyword or Brand+Extension e.g. ebay.co.uk

    I'd hazard a guess that less than 5% type in keyword/keyword string + extension, unless they know a site exists there.
