More On VeriSign's Typosquatting Plans
from the moving-forward dept
A couple weeks ago we wrote about a Wall Street Journal story, saying that VeriSign was considering hijacking domain name typos and taking them to its own page. I thought that this was amusing coming just days after John Zuccarini was arrested for typosquatting. Now, newspapers that don’t require a subscription have finally picked up on what is potentially a big story. The Washington Post has a rundown of VeriSign’s plans to bring traffic to their own site any time someone makes a typo – suggesting they may want to sign a deal with a Google or LookSmart to monetize that traffic with advertisements. While the Post article says they’re still debating what they’re going to do, the NY Times reports that this new typosquatting/typojacking service will begin today.

like this one…
“A couple weeks back…”
it should read,
“a couple of weeks back…” or “a couple of weeks ago…” In any case, you keep leaving out “of”. You need some kind of english refresher course.
Re: Mike, you keep making these stupid grammar scr
Thanks for the note. As I always say, I appreciate people pointing out typos, and I try to correct them immediately.
What’s unnecessary is specifically mean comments like “you need some kind of english refresher course.”
You’ve never made a mistake?
Anyway, thank you for pointing out the typo. No thanks for being obnoxious about it at the same time.
