Another Type Of Greek To Me

I saw some Arabic domains available (nobody wants?) and I regged them.

كومبيوترات.com : [computers].com (XN--MGBBGB7A7GOAXCT.COM)
قمار.com : [gambling].com (XN--MGBU3CM.COM)
منتجات.com : [products].com (XN--MGBFBG7JG.COM)

Any good? Did I do anything wrong again? Your opinion, thanks.

Always check US OVT for Arabic. Popular terms alway seem to be different from what translators give. Most good Arabic keywords would give US OVT in excess of 1000 to 2000.

Thanks. Life is not easy, there's still so much to learn!

The Google on the last two suggest that they might be OK!

Searches from the States are not always representative of what goes on in North Africa and the Middle East, so US Overture may not be the only thing to go by. First one also has some useage, but it seems to be localised.

Definitely not easy, Dave is the expert in Arabic names - i did the easy way, paid an arabic speaker to generate >2000 US OVT names for me, that was in early Dec though. Later i realized that many good names had <2000 US OVT.

I wouldn't say that but, I would recommend parking them at Namedrive. If you get even a small amount of traffic from Asia or Other (North Africa) then I think you can mark them down as a hold. G would give you a better idea and there are several other Arabic Speakers here. You really need to be in to 100K plus territory on Google, with Arabic. Upto about 10M is possible but very high Google scores do not necessarily mean huge value.

Systrans is the best translation tool I know for and Overture is a bonus. Good terms should show at least some.

Thanks Dave. I regged these just for fun. When I don't have any Chinese domains to reg, I need to do something to soothe my addiction :-).

Quite true, Google.com.sa doesn't seem to reconcile with overture.

منتجات products has 2.650.000 results.

At the moment it would seem to be the most useful.
