You might want to mention the language. I assume this is Chinese.

No, these are worthless. Find a Mainland Chinese to help, there's a guy from China offered such help at DNForum. There are still a lot of Chinese worth regging, don't waste your time.

年龄.com is available. This one is not too bad. (meaning the "age" of a person)

Yeah I agree with Giant. I think for the $25 that maybe you spent on these IDN, you could hire someone from mainland China on a language forum to help you for even one day via chat/messenger to give you hundreds of keywords. I know many guys are doing so. Remember not everyone in China can afford to spend $2000 or more on one day registering domains at bulk prices. I go broken a lot because my chinese girlfriend and another native chinese speaker from Shanghai that helps me to find keywords give so many keywords that i cant barely afford to register so much. And believe, there are way too much better available than those you are taking. Get help, chinese is way too complicated to do it alone, specially now that there are so many fishes on the sea. Invest on chinese language help, you will get better ROI.

Re: pls appraise this lot of domains

curious as to why you think they are worthless? Time for example is a good generic in English, is it not a good generic in China?

It also has some high google hits etc.


I'm confused!

Please explain the logic of your appraisal.

thanks.

Re: pls appraise this lot of domains

The fact that these two domains:

费.net fee/expense.net 249.000.000 132,000,000
时期.com time.com 169.000.000 87,100,000

showed up for sale at DNForum for $xx,xxx is a little disturbing considering the feedback received here from native speakers.

IDNs can quickly sink to the level of snake oil if not handled appropriately. My 2 cents.

时期 means a "period" of time, not "time". Time should be 时间 or 时代 (times).

Re: pls appraise this lot of domains

What sounds right in one language, doesn't sound very good in another. Things just don't translate clearly, and it is hard to explain why. I'm bilingual (not in Chinese though) and I see this all the time. You could spend all day explaining why a certain word would just sound wrong and another one that isn't apparent to a non-native speaker would be better.

All this just goes to show just blindly going in for the page value in google isn't the best way to get IDNs.

Why is this stuff being misrepresented on http://www.dnforum.com/f298/2-premiu...ad-137179.html ?

I agree, sales price should not be exaggerated too much.
