Asian Tourists Love to Click and Go

...Not surprisingly, a number of regional online sites and established international ones hope to prosper from the Asia travel boom. To be sure, the size of the region's online travel market is still small compared to mature markets such as the U.S. Online travel sales in Asia Pacific are estimated to reach $25.6 billion this year. That's only about one-third of the U.S. market forecast, according to New York Internet research firm eMarketer.

Yet online travel in the region is likely to experience explosive growth the rest of the decade. From 2006 to 2010, India is expected to grow at 271.6% annually, while Vietnam's online travel sector is forecast to expand 202% and China's and Indonesia's in the 70% to 83% range. (The biggest markets in revenue terms outside of Japan are India at $300 million and China at $200 million.) The U.S. online travel biz, by contrast, will grow 17% on an annual basis during the same time. ....

Nice find.

It would seem that normal SERP listing are OK, but you just cannot advertise.

This would seem to make getting SERP and getting your IDN an even higher priority!

Re: Asian Tourists Love to Click and Go

That Webmasterworld thread is from 2004. I'm not even sure if Overture still has that rule.

Re: Asian Tourists Love to Click and Go

I know this is not directly relevant, but has anyone tried experimenting with .travel domain names? Any thoughts or feedback? I own a few of them through a legitimate .travel web site but am not sure what to expect in the long term. (my domains are city and country names)
