Does anyone here have experience buying a Real Name? Does it help with AV traffic?

tedster, I'd say that the consensus has been that they are not worth the money (and fading from the SE scene to boot).

They usually don't seem to bring in much traffic unless you have some killer keywords in your company name.

I wouldn't consider them worthless yet though, It's been rumored that the next version of IE is going to have it's search feature focus pretty heavily on real names (microsoft bought a large part of the company about 6 months ago).
