Re: What *are* they smoking?
VeriSign stands to gain financially, take a look at this excerpt from an AP news blurb published yesterday: > Ben Turner, VeriSign's vice president for naming services, described the service > as a way to "improve overall usability of the Internet." > > People mistype ".com" and ".net" names some 20 million times daily, Turner said, > and internal studies show "the vast majority of users prefer a page like this > than what they are getting today." >... > Currently, Site Finder sends lost Web surfers to both regular search results and > pay-for-placement listings, which are marked as such. Turner said VeriSign was > partnering with two search companies he would not name. > > He would not disclose how much VeriSign would earn from those companies, with > which it has revenue-sharing arrangements. Anyone find out any details of the contracts which VeriSign has apparently signed to profit from this little venture? -rich
