    Everyone knows that Google is king...but to be listed on the first page for a premium keyword on a smaller keyword isn't bad either.

    Quick is a browser based search engine.
    Browser based keyword searches [type-in anything you want] only work with the plug-in, but both plug-in and ISP enabled users can use anything.search [anything.search.new.net] functionality.nic.PRO will be back online soon with FREE sub-domains. Dowload the FREE plug-in at

    Quick! search engine

    Oh, OK, I think I get it (BTW I tried quick.com and it doesn't resolve). So when I tried new-zealand.travel up the thread and it wasn't found I got a Quick! page instead, is that how it works? EG: not having the new.net browser plugin, if I try fnord.shop.new.net (which surprisingly remains unregistered), I get this [new.net] instead. So I take it the Quick search engine is only accessible if you already want a new.net extension domain or have their browser search plugin installed. I doubt that this has equated to 'millions' of searches since its inception.

    As to being 'listed on the first page' you don't say if you mean Google (which doesn't parse the domain name for keywords) or Quick! (which may or may not but doesn't appear to be much used). Either way this seems a rathole that isn't worth following. Regardless of search engine used (other than Quick!), or keyword used, I've never even seen a hit on a new.net domain, let alone followed one, and I suspect I'm in the vast majority. -g

    PLug-ins like New.net are a waste of time, people aren't going to adopt them.

    New.net requires a plug-in, allowing spyware programs on your hard drive. ICANN's TLDs do not require plug-ins, that is why they will succeed and New.net is a joke.
