    Am I likely to get any traffic by people missing out a dot in the web address ie would you get many hits for say wwwnapster.com insteas of http://www.napster.com - just don't want to waste money on domains if they're not going to get any traffic!

    Honestly, how many people actually type the "www." these days? I don't think it would be worth your money. Possibly, if you were to buy maybe..."wwwfacebook.com" which is based off a site that gets millions of visits daily, you may luck out. There are still plenty of old ladies that probably use www. still.

    I've found that most of the old people actually type URLs into their search engine. Like almost every one I've watched use a computer. You tell them to go to YouTube and they click in their Google/Yahoo toolbar or go to their bookmarks and select a search engine. Then they type the URL in the search engine box and click the first result. It's really quite amazing.

    Actually, in that sense getting ranked for "wwwfacebook.com" might be worth doing if you could pull it off.
