A neat trick

by 12 comments
Here's a nice trick that I came across this morning.. Many of you might be aware of it but it was new for me.

Today I got an email from Mike Filsaime promoting Frank Kern's new Mass Control video

The URL in the mail was (ignore the spaces)

http:// www-masscontrol . com/

(That's Mike's affiliate link)

I was wondering how there's a "www-" instead of "www." in the URL

Then it struck me.. "www-" was part of the URL itself.

So the complete URL was (ignore the spaces)

www . www-masscontrol . com

I think it's a neat trick to register a domain like "www-productname.com" and send your subscribers to


What is your opinion on this? It must be effective enough for Mike to use it.

      I remember a lady journalist giving seminars across the USA to corporate execs telling them about registering these 'type-in' domain names for their brands because others would do it for them - and of course - get the type-in traffic to their own site.

    I guess so. The only downside is for when people don't notice the dash instead of the dot when they come to type it.

    problem with this

    if people don't notice the - you might be sending to the wrong place

    I very rarely type in the www anymore

      Sounds like the kind of thing that Google robots eventually get smart enough to catch. It does have a very 'spammy' thing about it.

    Hmmm this is very interesting and opens a lot of idesa.
    The only downside I can see is people typing it it and going to the wrong site. But how often could that happen?
