Will Say Anything to Bring In a Sale

I am not talking about those SEO companies that promise and do not deliver. I am talking about companies that make up things and pass them along as fact in order to sell their product or services.

Would you agree with either of these next to statements? "Less frequent computer users usually search through a search engine." "Some of us users who are on the computer more frequently search this way." By this way, they mean "Simply type into the Address bar of your Internet Browser what you are looking for."

I was under the impression that novice Internet users search by typing keywords into the address bar of their browser.

A thread at SEO Chat discusses this so called "patch" that is installed on a users browser. At SEO Chat they call this adware or spyware but the person offering this service denies that. I won't get into the debate about the classification of such software, you can make your own decision on that.

But to say that "Less frequent computer users usually search through a search engine" really bugs me.
