My new, hopefully better IDNs...

I just purchased some new IDNs that I hope are better than my other purchases.



軒.com - house.com Google Japan Results= 19,000,000 | Yahoo Japan Results= 12,000,000
事業主.com - entrepreneur.com Google Japan Results= 2,080,000 | Yahoo Japan Results= 2,620,000
袋物.com - bags.com / purses.com Google Japan Results= 399,000 | Yahoo Japan Results= 259,000

What do you guys think?

A quick check suggests that you are off.
Just a few suggestions.

1. Check the pictures on google and yahoo. They should give you some ideas if you are on target.

2. Generic names like "bags" should return a lot more results than 399,000 google returned.

3. Check the OVT Japan as well. If the word is not searched for at all, you might be off.

4. It is probably not too early to say that top generic words (like house, bags, etc) in most popular languages are already taken. Keep that in mind and try to concentrate on a niche words, which could still be found.

Those are just my suggestions, of course.

軒.com - house.com - Not quite sure what this is but I get a bunch of pictures of noodles on Google.co.jp.

It's a correct translation (according to my dict.) but probably not the most used one.

This term ハンドバッグ looks more right but it's taken both ne and com. Not much OVT but over 1 mil Google.

I'm sure there's a better term somewhere.

Re: My new, hopefully better IDNs...

That's exactly the problem: "袋物" means "bags and purses" - it doesn't mean "bag" and it doesn't mean "purse" but it's a kind of collective word for bags and purses in general.

Now how often do you think people would search for "bags and purses"? Most frequently they're going to be looking for a bag - even a specific bag, e.g. "handbag", "shoulder bag" etc. or a specific type of purse.
