One note as usual is the case they have suspended new signups for the time being.

It seems Google visitors convert less... hmmm

We talked some about the Super Bowl earlier this week - the following article talks some about it as well.

Especially interesting are the before and after search data from Yahoo.

Before Super Bowl
After Super Bowl

If you had a product related to those featured in the Super Bowl Ads - I think you could have really racked up quite a bit.

So what did you think about the Super Bowl ads - for someone paying 2 million + a commercial, I thought they were bland. Another thing I'm curious about is how they tracked their success (or lack of it). Like them or not I think Go Daddy did well on their spot basically forcing people to go to their site to see the end of the commercial. The Hummer ad did well by giving you a specific link to go to. The others not so well.

Interesting notes -
