    Any one mind to explain why hotmail.com and yahoo.com are the most frequently search keywords. It made no sense to me sine you already knew the domain name, then what you are searching for.

    Well alot of newbies search for the names. They don't know what the domain might be. Maybee they think it's http://hotm.com or something so they search for hotmail. It's hard to say how newbies think

    Since newbies mostly rely on SEs for their destination site. I remember when I was a newbie, everything came from the SE, just know to type on address, the SE adress and keep on clicking and clicking!

    I remember when I tried to teach my mum to use the Internet. I set up Yahoo as the default page, and she went and typed yahoo into the search box to look for it cos she'd heard an advert on the TV.

    When you're new to all this web lark you're bound to be lost. When you're designing a site, especially if it's for beginners, you should never assume they know anything

    A site for beginners on the web, hmm.... *click click clogs turning*

    I agreed but when looking at how many people search for hotmail.com or yahoo.com at goto, it was more than 100000 plus each month. That is so strange.
    Also, anyone has done any optimization for those keywords yet. Mind to share with us. Will be appreciated.
