It shows that a heck of a lot of folks don't know or don't care about the address bar. They just fire up their browser to the (preset) home page, type the stem part of the domain into the search box, and go from there.
And we wonder why we sometimes have difficulty understanding people's search habits?
MSN, the randomized showing of ten of the top 200 offers too easy a shot at MSN beta search, since some could assert that is what the results are now. Anyway, if there is no list of 200, make a darn link to click to see the list.
(Not only is Google #1, it also has about five other listings in the top 200 too: gogle, googel, etc.)
Don't forget the occurences of "goggle" and it's various misspellings are probably entries for google, too. All told, Google takes up around ten of the top 200 entries.
So how many people type in 'google' to msn, then go to google and type in 'amazon?' then type in at amazon what they are looking to buy? :)
These seem to be people just looking for a company website, possibly just to browse, or maybe to look up a specific product but didnt search for it.
do they not know most companies are just www company com? or they can just put toyota on the address bar and hit ctrl/enter and it even does it for them.
