I would call this Branding Thaparian. [webmasterworld.com...]
I see a direct correlation between organic traffic and direct type in. Direct type in sends a very strong signal to Google and Bing that this domain is worth noting/ranking.
BTW this is not something a spammer can easily duplicate. Sure I can hire X numbers to type in my domain, but I also need additional signals that promote why a user would choose to type in my domain. I said and will repeat the traditional method we used is history move your development into a new direction or fade away.
The time of running cheap websites is at and end it now takes a team or dedicated personal to continue a web presence.
There maybe some spamming ranking for good key terms now but mark my words their time is rapidly approaching.
