There's a difference between what people do know and what people should know. There exist people who will burn out their cars due to not changing the oil, under the excuse that they didn't know this was something that needed to be done. I once met my father's newest au pair stranded in the street because the car had inexplicably stopped. It had run out of gas. (This is a true story.) To all evidence a perfectly sentient adult.
how has that got nothing to do with my site?
Substitute the name of any other active domain in the world and you'll get similar results. It's no more cashing in on your site than a lookup tool is cashing in on your IP if you search for
So don't you care what results 2 to 999 are?
If a person's sole reason for looking up my domain name was to find my site because they're too uninformed to type its name-- which clearly they already know-- in the correct place, then no, I don't care. Why should I? They themselves won't look beyond #1. If they do look further, it means they were after something other than a link to the site.
You might as well complain that when people look up your personal human name, the search engine has no right to mention anything other than sites you've personally sanctioned or contributed to.
