You want a secret to success for your latest Web venture? I can tell you in two syllables: trochee.

Can it be that simple? See for yourself. Find the most popular Web sites. Say their names out loud. Ponder the stress pattern.

YouTube
eBay
Reddit
SlashDot
Flickr
Google
Yahoo
MySpace
FaceBook
PayPal
Craigslist
Orkut
Wordpress
Blogspot
Netflix

Maybe you're not convinced. But are you willing to risk your brilliant venture with a loser name?
