Re: golf.tv

汽车购买 is not worth reg fee. Always remember to put in the double quotes. Each chinese character is treated as a word. So if you search without the double quotes, it will bring up every webpage containing the various characters in different combinations.

Re: golf.tv

I put "汽车购买" into Google with quotes and get 70,100 pages returned. The term is clearly shown in the header of the pages and all of them seem to deal with automobiles. Why would this not be worth the reg fee?

Re: golf.tv

The term isn't worth registering, at least from the chinese speaker point of view.

Re: golf.tv

汽车购买 is used as an adjective (or noun modifier) most of the time, like:

汽车购买 数量 : The number of car-buying (unlike English, it's an adjective or noun modifier)

And it sounds a little bit odd when it stands alone as a noun, but we do use it as a noun. It's ok though, it will worth quite a lot of money in the future, because there are not many words or phrases can be used to mean car buying.

The better form of this word is its short form 购车 (buying cars). I tried to reg this word when it dropped 3 months ago but forgot, and it was taken a few days later.

Or even better yet 买车, also its short form but more colloquial than 购车. Its Google resuld is only 2,270,000 vs 购车 4,240,000, but it is a better word in traffic terms. I tried to check which smart guy picked this one up. Oh! It's me!!! :-)

Excellent explanation, i just thought it sounds a little strange as a standalone, now you say it is adjective, and i realized why, guess i forgot my grammar. Anyway, you got 买汽车.com which is also a good name.

Steve - I think that understanding that the site would take development to become anything other than a speculative bet - golf.tv - ゴルフ.tv is not bad!

You're right too. If I saw this word I wouldn't reg it myself, because I can reg other names that I think more worth while. But if you think carefully, there are very few words can be used to advertise cars, then regging this one is not a bad idea.
