Lightbulb Chinese vs. Arabic market

I think that Arabic market is much better than Chinese for many reasons ,
- There are 23 Arabic countries considering Arabic language as the main language.
- These countries population is around 350 million .
- .com & .net are the best domains in every Arabic country. And whatever happen they will remain the best ever!

China is wide different from Arab countries..
- .cn will dominate sooner or later on the market.. Specially it is supported by the Chinese government.
- Chinese donnot like to communicate with the rest of the World .

That's what i think about these 2 markets.. will post later more info after reading your comments

Re: Chinese vs. Arabic market

I disagree only because I believe the Chinese market is much more developed. You can take all 23 Arabic countries, but none of them utilize the internet like China does. Huge difference, at least IMO. China also has lots of advertisers online which makes PPC much more profitable (I get to many 0.01cent clicks )

I'm sorry but its not like the old old days where China was closed up. China is a bustling economy and alot of people in China do business with the U.S..

Even Korea is kicking their butts.(arab nations)
Internet is growing substantially

IMO, the more countries that share a language, the more valuable the ccTLDs become. There is only one cars.com, but you can also have cars.co.uk, cars.au, cars.ie, etc. They each serve a specific local market.

Re: Chinese vs. Arabic market

its right that Chinese do business with the whole world.. this is not a new update
But my point is in people communication and spreading.

Chinese like to stay in China and to be closed around theirself isn't it ? This is their culture and customs from the past till now to the future.

Maybe more accurate to say the Chinese GOVERNMENT does not want free and open communication
with its citizens and the rest of the world. The government censors use techniques to block the internet
and any sites with any contents they do not like. That usually includes politics, religion and pornography.

The Chinese people are known to be among the friendliest in the world.
I am sure none would pass up a chance to come visit the great pyramids if invited!

There are more than 100 million expatriate Chinese, but not all of them can read and write simplified Chinese or indeed any kind of Chinese.

It is a reasonable working assumption that with 10 years more or less everyone will use the Internet.

Re: Chinese vs. Arabic market

They each got their merits. The gulf arabs got the money (oil money), and the chinese got the consumer market and the export dollars.

Before oil runs out or they find an alternative, i think the arabic market should not be underestimated.

Chinese ppl themselves get cultural shock when they move to different parts of china or from hong kong to china, or even hong kong to Taiwan. There are many Chinese cultures (just as many as there are many European cultures), and i find that the chinese from hong kong are generally friendly. I also heard that Chinese from Sichuan provinces are also very friendly.

Generally speaking, Chinese culture is more race and cultural tolerant and - probably because there are so many cultures in China, ppl are already used to mixing with ppl from different places, and yes, they can guess where you are from just by looking at your face.

The diversity can be extreme, at the other end of the spectrum, you can have this - http://www.canada.com/vancouversun/n...6-253983e7d8ae This like medieval times where slaves worked to death.

The best way to compare the two is by discovering how much revenue we make from either/both now and in the future. Too early to tell.

LOL! Understatement of the week. That may be the case for a little while. Maybe longer. I agree wholeheartedly, though.

No, I dislike broad sweeping statements in general.

-Chinese do not like to communicate with the rest of the world
-Chinese like to stay in China

Re: Chinese vs. Arabic market

Stand corrected. Those figures are much more authoritative than anything I have looked at. That info seems to be more recent.

Expect the numbers of expatriate Chinese to increase along with their economic influence. Wherever there are mineral resources there are likely to be a lot more of these guys. I would also expect to see many more expatriate workers generally, particularly in the construction and technology fields.
