I don't know how many people still understand what 谷歌 is, songs that the farmers sing when they harvest.

Problem is people nowadays don't sing 谷歌 any more, and when they try to analyze what 谷歌 means, they get:

谷: an adjective, meaning short or ending. 谷者,穷也。Ex: 进退维谷。
歌: song.

In this sense, 谷歌 means a song you won't sing for too long! :-) ---> Should I sell my Google stock now?

Re: google chinese name "谷歌=fruitful and happy song"

谷 is simplified of 穀.
穀 means "rice","crop"

i think,谷歌 is the better than 古果,古格,古狗,狗狗,狗歌

It seems that 古狗 is the most popular term.

狗歌 - must be a joke! :p

Re: google chinese name "谷歌=fruitful and happy song"

But the main point is Google is registering IDNs...

Wait a minute though.
I asked Matt Cutts on his blog if he can analyze why IDNs have no PageRank

What exactly was their announcement?
I think they bought some IDN domains to test...

The .net was taken the same day by "Mucky Muck". Probably one of their alias since it was done thru same registrar, different city, phone etc. though.
