    Hi,

    I have a quick question that has been bugging me for a couple of days now. If I type in www.quicksilver.com into my browser I get QSI software website but if I google quicksilver I get quicksilver surfing with the same identical address, QSI is listed a couple of results below again showing that address, how can this be?

    Cheers

    If you enter the www.quicksilver.com/QSI_WELCOME_content.html url, it seems to take you to the page your after, MrNice, which suggests that the webpage has a redirect on it.

    Sure some of the design guys will be along soon with more info ....

    I'm not a design guy, but I've had the same experience on several occasions. If company A buys company B and brands all of company A's products under company B's label, they still don't want to lose any customers who only know the product under company A's name. So they arrange that anyone that browses to company A's url be redirected to company B's url.
