The stats are very much a function of browser penetration.

Both Firefox and Opera seem to be going great guns in Russia.

Re: Sensitive Market Data from Icann

I wonder what would be the best way to get word out to our target market about the existence of the ICANN test Wiki?

Did you see some of these forums out there? Controversial:

Re: Sensitive Market Data from Icann

I think we need to focus on getting information out that IDN.ASCII exists. Word is spreading FAST about IDN.IDN that the IDN.ASCII are getting left in dust.

It's a bit late for that now, Sunshine.

What would be really nice would be if NameDrive has some graphs available in reports to get a visual grasp on visit levels.

Maybe writing that in each language of the official Wiki would help? It sure cannot hurt. The press is reading that Wiki, too.

I can only make so many entries myself before I look like the only one interested.

C'mon, guys. You post a lot of threads here. Post ONE there.

Maybe Namedrive will feature some idn.com in their spotlight domains.
Only one I have seen up was the Thai idn- porno.com Gary put up a while back.

Maybe but as Dot CN is really the IDN.IDN that exists, I would not worry too much.

Problem is a lot of these people are now typing in IDN.IDN into their browsers and not IDN.ASCII (I'm speaking from the over 100+ website comments I've visited today about the recent Arabic IDN article posted).

Why are you surprised?

Do you own any Greek domains to compare traffic levels. It's not a population issue; it's about awareness.

It's about backlinking - notice many backlinks from .ru domains?

That's still about awareness.
Even IDNF made it on that referers' page. How many clicks did we send 50? 100?
That page has had over 16,000 visits.

Of course not. So we are missing out on potential traffic from users who think they must wait until IDN.IDN comes out for them to be able to access these website when in fact IDN.ASCII is up and running with developed sites on them (not my opinion. this is what's actually happening right now).

People are sitting away typing IDN.IDN into their browsers and getting a "Not Found" message.

Re: Sensitive Market Data from Icann

Well get this opinion noted in the Arabic Wiki Discussion and then try to lay as many trails to the Arabic Wiki from all the Arabic Blogs. Get those backlinks in, but make sure they are in the IE6 friendly format. Only those here that have the local language skills can do this. And they should do it as they are the ones that stand to reap the most benefit.

Yep. Left my Saturday open to do exactly that. Trust me, I'm on it!

I plead for others who have the language skills to write about this in the other wikis and spread the information on blogs as well. Also, we should also ask ICANN to do some press release notifying people that IDN.ASCII EXIST and are working FINE! With live examples and such (developed domains).

My "original" Arabic is kind of sketchy. I only know of the slang, and the problem with the slang is it is only beneficial to certain parts of the Arabic world. I've already texted my cousin and tomorrow I am going to sit and try to get a write up that IDN.ASCII DO exist and what not (something has to be done now). I will be (at least I plan to) send traffic to the IDN wiki site.
