flight new media – Web Design & Internet Marketing

flight new media vs. flyte new media: can Google Voice Search for your desktop tell the difference?

“What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.”

Last month Google released a desktop version of their voice search technology, allowing people around the world to yell at their computer screen and receive tangible results.

I'm a big fan of the voice search on my iPhone; it's almost always right, and when it's not, it's almost always funny. So, I decided to check it out on the first thing that popped into my head:

flight new media or flyte new media?

Wait,  that's not what I said! I said flyte new media! No matter how many times I tried it I got the same results.

I can only imagine the frustration for business owners, marketers and entrepreneurs are experiencing when looking for a quality web design and internet marketing company with a homophonistic name.

To that end, I decided to create a “flight new media” post, which would work as a redirect of sorts until Google realizes that when people are searching for “flight new media” they really mean “flyte new media.”

Since Scribe SEO says I'm supposed to have 300 words minimum in this post for maximum SEO, I guess I could continue writing about all things flyte, and you can feel free to stop reading at any point now.

  • We have an email newsletter we call flyte log, not flight log.
  • You're currently reading the flyte blog, not the flight blog.
  • We talk about a process for building quality websites named the flyte plan, not the flight plan.
  • I refer to my co-workers as the flyte crew, not the flight crew.
  • We call our educational workshops flyte school, not flight school.
  • We once ran an ad with the slogan take flyte, not take flight.

OK, I think we've got this covered now.

If you have a similarly homophonistically (yes, that's a word–I just made it up) challenged name, or you've had a surprisingly wrong result with Google's voice search, please let us know.
