Please appraise: nō.com, mę.com, èa.com, Qè.com, töm.net more.. 2,3 letter IDNs

I own a bunch of 2 letter domains.

what are your thoughts on these? i put some interesting sedo comparisons at the bottom. but i don't know if they are truly comparable.

the 2nd column is the global adwords search volume:

2 letters:

èa [dot] com 140
ād [dot] com 12
èf [dot] com 28
úf [dot] com 73
èj [dot] com 73
àj [dot] com 46
mę [dot] com 140
nō [dot] com 210
ān [dot] com 16
nȯ [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
ōn [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
úo [dot] com 58
èq [dot] com 58
Qè [dot] com 140
úq [dot] com 12
tō [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
tȯ [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
ōx [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
èz [dot] com 73


3 letters:

aćt [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
biž [dot] com 28
biź [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
biż [dot] com 46
șex [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
bīz [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
āct [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
ăct [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
ăct [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
flý [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
fŭn [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
śky [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
mên [dot] com 16
ský [dot] com 73
sŭn [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
vīp [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
vīp.net NOT ENOUGH DATA


3 letter "names":

tȯm [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
töm [dot] net 260
tōm [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
pát [dot] com 46
röb [dot] com 46
ārt [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
ărt [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA
ąrt [dot] com NOT ENOUGH DATA

they don't have much search volume as you can see.

here is where i am confused.

let's look at current sedo auctions at other 2 letter similar IDNs:

for this one you will see the most disparity b/w adwords volume and price, yet 1 bidder
sý [dot] com 1 bid @ 1,500 EUR and only 36 global adwords volume

now this one, is it soley due to a math reference?
pì [dot] com 10 bids @ 10K EUR, 1600 global adwords vol

now, look at this by contast. this one on sedo has no bids, but far higher global adwords volume:
pç [dot] com - 0 bids on sedo, and 2400 global adwords volume

the rest all have at least 1 bidder, and not much more volume than mine:

èp [dot] com 1,200 EUR 1 bid, yet only 480 global adwords volume

yé [dot] com 2 bids, only 390 global adwords vol

zö [dot] com 1 bid on sedo, only 260 global adwords vol

jö [dot] com 1 bid, 590 global adwords vol

üa [dot] com 1 bid 200 EUR, only 110 global adwords vol


so the only thing i can conclude is, there must be special significance to those 2 letter pairings in certain countries that i am unaware? otherwise perhaps my 2 letter ones might have some value? and what of my 3 letter ones?

thank you kindly.

Haven't really checked them out but if they are simply made up words that are not used in any language then they are for entertainment only and may find buyers that don't know what they are getting.

Check out the forum here, a lot of "real" idn.

Don't give up your day job. And if you happen to meet any of those SEDO bidders, please pass the same comment on from me.

funny. well im glad its not me who is confused by these sedo sales.

heres the way i look at it. tell me if i'm totally off base.

you guys are all exceptional seasoned domain investors. experts in IDNs, you guys are actually a step above most domainers in working through the value of domains. i mean, you are continually forced to decipher alternative languages, judge ranking based on dozens of metrics, search volumes, non mixing, how much sense does this word make...sometimes w/o being a native speaker.

this is very different than some domainers who buy and flip names through sheer marketing efforts and persistence of otherwise non traffic non sensical names.

i believe, and could be wrong, that the reason those 2 letter IDN sales happened, was first, they were probably marketed outside of sedo driving bidders to sedo. second, the way the were probably marketing was on perceived scarcity.

rightly or wrong, i'm not sure how many possible latin 2 letters combinations are possible with accented vowels-- that would be interesting research, i believe there might be a perceived scarcity of that type of IDN.

certainly we can look at meaningless combinations of NON IDN 2 letter .com's, and yet these see low to mid 6 figure sales.

now a rational seasoned IDN investor might look at that and say, yes, but non IDN 2 letter names get enormous type in traffic, and 2 letter IDN's get zero.

i cannot argue with that logic, that makes sense to me. the only question is is there any perceived value in just the a) very short length, and, b) its use as some type of vanity name / prize, mostly due to its length.

i speculate anyone bidding on these names at sedo has length in mind as primary objective.

opposing thoughts / critique welcomed.

or is it bidders think these are real words (hence rare and useful) and so bid?

They certainly look like real words to the (very) uneducated person that hasn't learnt how to use google yet. Perfect fit for Sedo bidders.
