    Hi,

    For some popular websites, when checked on google keyword planner it shows huge number of searches. Do people really search for that particular keyword of the famous website instead key-ed in direct on the browser address bar?

    Example:

    facebook

    monthly average search 45mil+.

    This might be extreme example but even from some other popular website, i notice monthly average search for exact domain keyword in millions..

    Reason why i wondering is, by norm i assume for famous websites, we never search but instead type the name direct in the address bar. am i missing something?

    shed some light please...

    those digits are estimates.. i'm pretty sure chrome users use their address bar frequently to search terms.

    noted that the figure is just an estimation but the point is the word being searched.. which make me hard to believe it :D

    I've 'looked over the shoulder' of plenty of people (mostly >50 year old) as I've been talking them through something, and you'd be surprised at quite how many type in the name of the website they're looking for into the Google searchbox - exactly as you say, Facebook, or Amazon, or Wikipedia, or whatever it is.

    Or, if they're using chrome, just typing 'facebook' in the address bar will cause a search.

    So - I can indeed see why there's a very large volume of searches for those popular site names.

    I noticed that with many friends: people are too lazy to type in the full domainname + ending. So they just use google and their autocompletion.
