Conversion Rates by Language

Just wanted to post some data on click thru rates for various languages. I'm not sure exactly what this means except that the potential is there:

Language | CTR

Farsi | 19%
Russian | 10%
Arabic | 8%
Japanese | 3%
Chinese | 1%

While Farsi converts best, traffic is modest compared to Russian and even Arabic. There was also a amalgam of Czech, Swedish, French, Portuguese, and Bulgarian names that converted at 14%. Anyone seeing similar trends?

Food for thought.

Re: Conversion Rates by Language

It all depends on content served and user expectations, methinks.

I have a batch of Russian domains that consistently get about 40% CTR.

Why? Because the users are seeking porn, and when they see XXX, they go for it, no matter what language, since they are looking for pictures.

On domains where the language does matter, the CTR is much lower.

Re: Conversion Rates by Language

I agree that content does matter. But I'm looking in general, with a broad base of domains, which language (and by extension which users) have the best CTRs.

I think this makes the most sense. I guess XXX is international now!
