You could also do an i-ratio; the number of "i"s to the rest of the letters in the company name:

Bigmouthmedia 11:2
Site Visibility 9:5
I Spy 3:1
etc
etc

Oh boy, it must be Friday if I'm about to express things as fractions. I'll quit while I'm ahead. :)

Also, can you assign value to "i"s? Is a company more/less successful if they use it more or have a high ratio?

Now that I've cemented myself as an über-nerd... good post.

Actually, Ambergreen's full name is Ambergreen Internet Marketing. So we did manage 2 "I"s... :-)

Similarly, Netrank are officially LBi Netrank (www.lbi-netrank.co.uk)

It seems increasingly unavoidable to have products with an i- at the front as well.

It's good to see we're number one... and while we're boasting about the number of i's
We're tehcnically known as sitevisibility a division of ai digital, which has even more

Rachel said...

the i's have it, as they say.

Ciarán said...

No i-love for Altogether Digital, with 2, or a ratio of 17:2? For shame Andrew, for shame!

;)

Andrew Girdwood said...

Oh yeah! That's Altogether Digital added! (Blame the NMA!)

Simon said...

Now that we at SiteViz are part of ai-digital there will be no stopping us.
That is 3 x i in 9 letters or 33%. LOL.
