Or: when looking for "g" - I recently found this interesting phrase in the report for the most searched words in US. Working with my favourite analytics tool Semrush, I came across the phrase "www g" - with its search for 246,000 entries a year in the US, it is one of the most searched phrase. It can be assumed that it is searched mainly by users, who wanted to enter www.google.com or its local variant. Either they clicked faster or they know that they will still appear with Google search and offer their address in one of the first places.
From an IT employee's point of view, it's interesting that users know that the URL addresses are written with www, but they do not enter a dot. This suggests they obviously really want to look for www.google.com and not enter it directly. This is indicative of incomplete IT literacy, because they would have much more secure search results by simply typing "google" into the search line.
In the end, the funny fact may be, that in most cases, these people have default search settings set on Google in their browser, so they do not even have to search for the site itself and just enter what they really want to look for, such as "online monitoring" for their blog.
