Instead of bookmarking BOINC I do a google search for BOINC. I do the same for 'world community grid'.

It isn't much more difficult with auto-complete.

I don't know if it helps, but it is my understanding that google keeps track of popular searches.

I believe that BOINC is easy enough to find on the search engines for someone who uses the terms 'BOINC', 'distributed computing' or any of the projects.

Like mouse milking, this tactic might be useful but hardly worth the effort.
