The A-Z of Google Instant

By DOM Team| 2 Min Read | September 8, 2010

Maybe only interesting for SEO types, but try typing in each letter of the alphabet and see what comes up first in Google Instant Search:

A is for AOL
B is for Best Buy
C is for Craigslist
D is for Dictionary
E is for eBay
F is for Facebook
G is for Gmail
H is for Hotmail
I is for IMDb
J is for JCPenney
K is for Kohls
L is for Lowes
M is for MapQuest
N is for Netflix
O is for Ohio Lottery
P is for PNC
Q is for Quotes
R is for Realtor
S is for Sears
T is for Target
U is for USPS
V is for Verizon
W is for Weather
X is for XBOX
Y is for Yahoo
Z is for Zappos

Anyway, that’s what I got while typing here in our Cleveland, OH search engine optimization location.

And take a look at the alphabet in Google UK:

A is for Argos
B is for BBC
C is for Currys
D is for Debenhams
E is for eBay
F is for Facebook
G is for Google Maps
H is for Hotmail
I is for Ikea
J is for John Lewis
K is for KLM
L is for Lotto
M is for MSN
N is for NEXT
O is for O2
P is for Paypal
Q is for Quidco
R is for Rightmove
S is for Sky
T is for Tesco
U is for Utube
V is for Vodafone
W is for Weather
X is for Xe
Y is for Youtube
Z is for Zara

You Americans may not be too familiar with some of the UK terms above, but it’s spooky how the British Target, Tesco, is in there for the letter T as well as as a similar amount, if not more, of major high street retailers (stores)!  That’s why keyword research is so important for international search engine marketing.
