Re: actualité vs actualités

Interesting question. Obvious answer is one is singular and one is plural.

The singular is a past participle as far as I know.

I think the first is like Happening so it is probably used an Adverb/Adjective, whilst the second is more like Happenings, so it is used as a Noun. But I am guessing a bit here!

I am sure some of the French speakers know better, just hope they are able to explain it in English.

Re: actualité vs actualités

Haha,

Actually it would be L', not Le...
Much much better with apostrophe :p ! haha! *

Seriously, there's none difference for me.
Both means News.
See the GG Trends, both very searched.
They are both words, and not past participle RD.

I'm absolutely unable to say to you which is better.

If you look LCI.fr (a news network from the first european channel TF1), they use in their title Actualité.
If you look Yahoo (fr.news.yahoo.com) or Google (news.google.fr) , they use Actualités.
If you look AOL (actualite.aol.fr) , they use Actualite in their subdomain, but Actualités in their title... :p

For me there's none difference.

For info:
- Actualite.com (ASCII) recently bought 12.000€ on Sedo (cheaper on my opinion).
- I've got actualité.org + actualités.org + actualités.TV.
- If I could, I would have taken actualité.tv as well, but it was taken.

Dan, your actualité.info is TOP on my opinion, you can keep it.

A question, what is the Dot.info market Vs Dot.org market please ?
Personnaly, I like dot.info, but dot.org have maybe more value ?
We don't often see sales of idn.org nor idn.info ...

* Lactualite.com is used in Quebec, maybe a newspaper (like Le Monde or The Times, you know...)

Re: actualité vs actualités

Thanks L@@K. This sort of thing can be very confusing!

I would guess that in France .info is more valuable, but who really knows?

Re: actualité vs actualités

L@@k gave you a pretty good answer. Here is my very simple view on your question.

L'actualité most of the time means all of the news items as a whole. It can also be used for a single news item but this is not very common at least not in Quebec.

Les actualités is many news items. That's it.

So you see they pretty much convey the same meaning.

Both of them are excellent french names to hold... You can't really say one is better or worse than the other one. Either of those will make it pretty big if developed. Just be careful of TM on L'actualité Magazine... shouldn't really be a problem because it is so generic.

Re: actualité vs actualités

Yes, i know.

Have you seen the GG war against all these MFA (Made For Adsens) ?

I believe google won't like these websites in the future except if they have a real content.
It's why I asked...

Re: actualité vs actualités

I just found a MFA page using pilfered content. I wonder if Google will ban the owner....
