As we found with Apple’s new iPad that most users still call the iPad 3, search queries for the Samsung Galaxy S3 vastly outnumber those for the Galaxy S III, or SIII, in the UK.
A quick look at Google’s insights for search shows that the users are nearly 10 times more likely to look for the term – “Galaxy S3”, than for the “Galaxy S III”, or the “Galaxy SIII”.
This has a very real and noticeable impact on search engine optimisation. Samsung doesn’t come first in search engine results for the term “Galaxy S3”. This means that had the manufacturer opted for that name, it is more than likely that it would have witnessed an increase in the number of visitors.
