Re: Алёна.com & Алена.com (Alena)

Meet Алена Водонаева,
Alot of people want to buy her gifts.



Sure this is not a product or service (it is in some places in the world unfortunately) but it's worth the reg fee anyday.

I am aware of a 1stName .com ascii that was sold appx 1yr ago for 50k

Headline on her site say: so what, if i am a slut...cool chick

Nothing a course of pills couldn't clear up, of course.

A local buyer will not show up to buy a name like this, but will register a varaint or find another catchy phrase.
Blast, you make me laugh. I think this advice is not worth reg fee. Was that polite enough? If you think a name only makes revenue because a national chain has that name, I don't know what to think. You are sadly mistaken. Ask the owners of анастасия.com, елена.com, or анна.com if those domains make any revenue. If they don't, I will gladly buy them.

Re: Алёна.com & Алена.com (Alena)

I think that "names" are pretty good investments, not up there with generics, product keywords or cities, but IMO
worth xx in current market, xxx in a year or so, and x,xxx when thing gear up in a few years. Especially if you can
get the first name of a major porn star :p

My question is about using the double "dots" over the letter (as shown here) ё
Advice to me was to avoid regging letters with the double dots.
Appreciate any information on this.

I think both domains are good and will be worth in future.

As for ё - this is official russian letter and it is present on each russian keyboard.

Re: Алёна.com & Алена.com (Alena)

Алёна.com & Алена.com are both correct spellings. Sometimes the word is correctly spelled with ё. When in doubt, reg both.

These two get vastly more traffic & revenue than Japanese domains. Lower RPC, good CTR, a lot more traffic.

Re: Алёна.com & Алена.com (Alena)

First Names are always worth it.....and celebrity names particularly good as well.

They do get nice traffic, and decent revenue.

According to the Yandex numbers, they also get a fair bit of interest.

They receive consistent, targeted traffic. Usually, they receive traffic the day you reg them. That has been my experience....

I have learned that there are a few words where this character is preferred, but for the most part it is not. It's always worth comparing how you see it written most frequently in the google serps - counting serps is not enough because unfortunately google doesn't often distinguish between these sorts of things.
