Just a note of caution: What is not known here is why. If you are shopping for a car and go to Honda.com you may not be happy. It is a corporate site that includes power sports and everything else. The next time, you are likely to do a Google search. There, the organic search result allows you to pick where you want to go, arguably even more clearly than the Honda.com site. The paid result says it will take you to Honda.com, but it does not. It goes directly to the autos. Honda knows it has a problem. Ford used to be very similar, with Ford.com as a corporate site and FordVehicles.com as the site you wanted to be on if you were shopping for a car or truck. Some of their present-day searches may stem from past confusion. Sometimes, more consumer clicks is an indication of navigation challenges, and the same can be said for the number of searches. When a group of sites have been well established with popular brand names for over a decade, the portion of searches may not reflect a proportional amount of popularity. There are multiple factors contributing to the number of searches, not all of them are good news for the brand.
