Type-in traffic is not a myth; Over the past ten years I have sat down next to many a client and WATCHED them do it. Most of them have their start page set to Google, and instead of typing an address in the address bar, they type it into Google. And they're accustomed to finding what they are looking for by means of the domain name (or think they remember it correctly from last time) and just type in widgetsupplies.com without even thinking about it. Heck, my own mom does it - seems particularly popular with people even older than I am.
