With the auto complete function in Google when you type something link pink widget but instead you type pink.widget and when you type it for a longer period, lets say 50 times in 3 months or so and when you go out somewhere else or you clear all your history and cookies and later when you try to search for pink widget the autocomplete gives you a search option with pink.widget . So guess what am I doing? Am putting my bussines name and my service so in few months it will be posible when someone searches for a keyword that it will display my company and a keyword. They probably didnt think some webmaster will think of that and they probably thought no one will notice.
Anyone else notice that?
Good luck and have fun.

I think in this case that Google sees the dot in "pink.widget" as a delimiter, the way it might see a hyphen or a space... so there is nothing magic about the dot.

It's likely that Google's auto-complete function is as least as sophisticated as the mechanisms Google uses to detect false clicks in a variety of other areas. I can imagine ways around this, but I'm not going to discuss them here.
It doesn't take much for auto complete to suggest some company + keyword. It depends on how many searches are for the keyword so if you have many some percentage might be included. Am very sure of this as saw it for a competitor of mine when I searched on fresh Ipad of mine. It clearly said company + keyword. But again, probably needs some percentage of company + keyword to be inputed so Google puts that in the auto complete listed with the keyword. Probably 1 or 2 percent, maybe more.
