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.


Anybody want to send us their country’s Google Instant alphabet?
