we are going to describe the two most practical ones.

The first one was identified as “Freestyle Navigation”, which refers to the practice of entering a keyword in most cases forwarded by a “dot com” TLD hoping to reach some specific content. For example, a user wants to download a famous MSN messenger, then s/he easily types “” into the browser’s address bar, and automatically gets redirected on to the Microsoft’s “” with “download Microsoft MSN messenger” results.

FairWinds Partners identified the other type as “Evolved Navigation”, which refers to the practice of typing brand names into a browser’s address bar expecting the relevant content to appear. for instance, brings you all the relevant content for a sport’s wear company named Adidas.

TLD importance

As it has been mentioned earlier Direct navigation search is performed when a user types in a so-called generic domain name followed by a TLD, which at the same time is a keyword for the searched content, for instance. In this case the searchers intent is determined by a keyword. The very big advantage of Direct Navigation, that the searcher is concerned about what s/he is looking for. Another important thing we have to mention concerning Direct Navigation Traffic is Top Level Domains. As it can be seen from the table below, the “com” ones are the most popular domains and the searchers are more likely to type in the “dot com” ones at the end of a domain name when they search for something in particular.
