How valuable do you think this domain will be?...

I purchased the domain ringtone.com in Japanese. How valuable do you think it become? Mobile phones are extremely popular and a big industry in Japan. Almost everyone has a mobile phone in Japan.

Thanks

I think it's a very smart purchase. Congrats! Don't be put off by a relatively small JP OVT number on cell phones.

Is it worth anything. Almost certainly not. The point is that keywords are valuable because they people use them, not because that's what the dictionary says is the translation. I hope it is only reg fee you have lost!

Re: How valuable do you think this domain will be?...

Rule number 1
Don't use Systrans for technology translations.
That term is not ringtone...

Re: How valuable do you think this domain will be?...

Sorry I guess I have to explain the term.
Technically you are right
it is translated as ringtone
But not the ringtone for ringtone sounds etc...
Get my point?

One method is to use google. Once you have a Japanese word, do a google search for the term in "double quotes" for exact matches. If it's a popluar word, or the one you think it is, you should find at least 1 Million matches... then click on some of the resulting pages to see if it looks like a match!
