Re: Shocking results! Defeat conventional think - Gogl Trends for .com, .net, .ctld, .biz

interesting yes, but I don't believe it is accurate or representative

why?

i just run it for .co.uk http://www.google.com/trends?q=.com%...ate=all&sort=0

it's suggesting that .co.uk is only just more popular than .net in the UK :o if that's right I will stop eating my fish n chips and eat my hat instead

.net King in China?
.net is out of proportion to .com in Japan as well.

.net trend will include microsoft's dot net i think?

at best, it's a comparison between .com, .biz and .cltd.

Anyway, this is the first time i tried making such a comparison, since trends juist upgraded the sort by country feature. it's definitely shocking to me and i'm sure to most of us here, especially when it is sold upon us all along that ctld is stronger than .com!

And this blows away the belief that .info has a mindshare foothold in germany - http://www.google.com/trends?q=.com%...ate=all&sort=0

google trends can do more than what most will use it for! any ideas on how to take out microsoft dot net from trends?

I am not sure that Google trends separates out dot net from other occurances of NET. Many Chinese companies just append NET to their names, which might account for the discrepancy. Sina is often know as Sinanet.

Also don't forget that Trends will pick up .net.cn as .net!

Yes, trends doesn't do " ", so it probably includes even the website urls.net.

maybe, but that doesnt explain my uk example above, so that just leaves MS .net, could that really account for the discrepancy?

IDN.net.cn is way more popular in China than IDN.com.cn. I suspect some of you understand why.

I think no one knows. Google trends is only a relative guide at best.

Consumer mindshare is quite different from domainer mindshare. As domainers, we are influenced by ideas from the community.

Very interesting. The results for Japan don't seem credible. The .JP is a short line that sticks straight up - does that sound even remotely possible to any of you. And yes MS .NET certainly can distort the results IMO.

If not, my .net collection is actually extensive so I'm hedged :p

Re: Shocking results! Defeat conventional think - Gogl Trends for .com, .net, .ctld,

Very interesting way of using GT

Keep in mind however that this is what people are looking for...and that data is not accurate/complete on most countries.

If Google Trends is accurate, French people are looking up Marocco twice as often as they are looking up Germany.

http://www.google.com/trends?q=allem...ate=all&sort=0

Does anyone believe that?

There are other things that don't seem to add up. And it's not only with Google, it's also very true with the oft-quoted Overture. It just seems things are often drastically scewed into the unbelievable.

ON SECOND THOUGHT...
The three cities in France that are listed as searching for Germany the most... are on the German border, which makes sense. For some reason, Marocco fascinates France more than Germany.

But there is another TLD:.com.cn

In my opinion, it's just show about searchs,just searchs.
LOOK:
http://www.google.com/trends?q=.com%...ate=all&sort=0

why .net is good search
SEE HERE:
China
http://www.google.com/trends?q=.com%...ate=all&sort=0
Japan
http://www.google.com/trends?q=.com%...ate=all&sort=0
Germany
http://www.google.com/trends?q=.com%...ate=all&sort=0
USA
http://www.google.com/trends?q=.com%...ate=all&sort=0

I think it's only about searchs, USA people will search: "ebay.com" ,"myspace.com", but Chinese and Japanese will search less.

Well done, your asp.net trick did proved that it is searches for microsoft dot net. I also tried vb.net, and it has trends.

Beats me, unless there's another way in which the trends can be interpreted. If you look at the UK results, it shows that .co.uk is quite strong, but still much weaker than .com.

http://www.google.com/trends?q=.com%...ate=all&sort=0

.de however triumphs .com in German hands down - http://www.google.com/trends?q=.com%...ate=all&sort=0
