My 1st Arabic IDN!

I just picked up my 1st Arabic IDN: الْعَرَبيّة.com & also the .net, xn--mgbcd4a2b0d2b3ab6ae.com

It means "Arabic": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic There are 27,300,000 Google results.

Was actually very suprised that it was available! What do you think about this name? Is this definately the correct translation?

Re: My 1st Arabic IDN!

Sorry to say but I don't think this one is worth anything. When you do a search you should always use " " around the term. This will give you a more accurate measure of the instances of the term in websites. Doing that, Google returns just 753 pages. If you look closely, all of the results when searching without quotes are for the non-accented version.

The term you got contains accents. Accents in Arabic are rarely used in regular writing. The term may be technically correct, but as it is, it's not very popular.

It's a great resource, but you have to take it with a grain of salt.
As an IDN resource, it's either hit or miss so no doubt worth double checking.

It's like an army of amateur gynecologists surrounding the hospital for 1 mile in all directions - clogging all possible paths for people who want to see the real specialists.

Re: My 1st Arabic IDN!

htmlindex: don't be put off, we have all been there. Put it down to experience.

Yes wiki sucks for copy n paste

but what you can do is copy and paste into google and then copy and paste back out of google the non accented version.

it's the only way i know of removing those pesky accent thingies

Re: My 1st Arabic IDN!

Hi htmlindex what everybody say is right but if you copy and paste something in Arabic from wikipedia is better to copy and paste in google search and there appears the right version of the word in the results just copy and paste the word that appears in google results and try first google trends if have good trends you are in the right track but just keep in mind that there are not to many top keywords in Arabic or any other language you got to do a very good research.
