Not much commercial value or potential for type-in with these two if you ask me.

cities.de
states.de

Re: Städte.de & Länder.de

These Auctions closed before Christmas. I was wondering how these didn't get reported. Where did you find them?

Re: Städte.de & Länder.de

German IDN.com must have no resale value. Strange, since most of the German IDN.coms are owned by Germans.


Thinking about German geo domains, I just picked this one up. I think it was a drop, as the dot info has been taken for 4 years already.

köln-bonn.com (xn--kln-bonn-n4a.com)


http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Region_K%C3%B6ln/Bonn


I have concluded that Germans almost unanimously use the dash to separate words in domains.

then do you think japanese or chinese names get much type-in? for japanese and chinese, we need to calculate type-in by stacks of 100 names, or it will go to 0.1 type-in per name per month. LOL.

Well, obviously if Germans didn't see value in IDN.com then they wouldn't have bought nearly all of them between 4 and 6 years ago! The country has over 80 million people, so the dot de namespace gets crowded real fast.


Try this test:

Using Google.de, I selected "Seiten auf Deutsch" (pages in German) - this also includes Austria, some of Switzerland, some of Belgium, etc, etc.


Search for site:.de

http://www.google.de/search?hl=de&q=...a=lr%3Dlang_de

25.8 million results

--

Search for site:.com

http://www.google.de/search?hl=de&q=...a=lr%3Dlang_de

24.6 million results

--

Search for site:.net

http://www.google.de/search?hl=de&q=...a=lr%3Dlang_de

2.94 million results

--

To me, it seems that dot com is right on par with dot de for sites which are written in German language (for internal consumption), but they really don't like dot net much at all.

Now, this is where dot com really whomps dot de's ass - sites inside Germany which are written in any language (mostly english, for foreign customers, etc).

--

Go to Google.de, select "Seiten aus Deutschland".


Search for site:.com

http://www.google.de/search?hl=de&q=...cr%3DcountryDE

79 million results

--

Search for site:.de

http://www.google.de/search?hl=de&q=...cr%3DcountryDE

47.3 million results

--


Well, those stats are only useful if you trust Google's indexes to be accurate, but they do provide some sort of picture.


I also have development possibilities since I can speak German, unlike Japanese. German PPC also seems to be on par or even higher than Japanese - my experience has been that the average is about 5 cents higher per click (22 cents with German, compared to 17 cents with Japanese). CTR is also higher since Germans aren't all surfing with mobile phones. And you don't have to contend with that damned yahoo - I hate that search engine, it's like a freaking roller coaster ride.
