To solve the problem of monetizing that traffic, the question is: Who would type in a single letter .com or why would anyone type in a single letter .com in any language?
Yes, domainers do account for some of the
traffic but there are many people who type
in single-char names out of curiousity. Unlike
direct navigation traffic that we normally see,
e.g. someone typing newhomes.com to try
and find a site about 'new homes', single-char
traffic is not clearly defined - the only thing we
may know about the user is that they are curious
and are perhaps technology minded (they have
IE7 or other browser don't they!)... that is true at
least for single-letter or number domains.
