купить versus куплю

These both autotranslate to "buy".
Per Yandex wordstat, when coupled with a relevant keyword, they generally trend about the same.

Can anyone help me understand the difference between купить and куплю and particularly, when it's most appropriate to use what?

For example, if I wanted to register BuyCars.com, would that be Купитьавтомобиль.com or куплюавтомобиль.com (the latter being available and I don't care if someone registers it... Just wondering what is the proper translation for "buy")

Re: купить versus куплю

I'm not a native but from my understanding the first one is the one you're looking for in regards to buy cars. The second term is something you'll encounter a lot in ads posted by people who are in the market to buy cars. Sort of [I am] buying a car. Hence the reason the term is open.

On another note, I would use авто when dealing with cars. It's shorter and I believe more popular in internet speak.

Again, I do not speak Russian, so all the above could be wrong ;/

Re: купить versus куплю

"купить" means "to buy"


"куплю" translates as "(I) will buy"

I'm not sure which one is more often used when coupled with other words in searches - but both variations are correct in your example:

Куплю Автомобиль - (I) will buy a car

and

Купить Автомобиль - to buy a car

Re: купить versus куплю

Ahh, wonderful. Thank you very much Yanni and RussianDomainer!

So, I would assume that if I wanted to purchase a domain that is intended to be used as an ecommerce sales platform, купить[keyword] is the correct keyword rather than Куплю[keyword]?

If so, this is the direction I'll take. Also, are there any better suggestions as far as words to use to accomplish the Russian equalivalent of "Buy Cars" or "Buy Guitars" , etc?

Thanks again~!

Re: купить versus куплю

Of course, better is just "cars" or "guitars".

Or furs.com - меха.com ;-)

BTW, I think that Купитьавтомобиль.com is one of my drops from last year. I vaguely remember having something like that before I dropped most russian stuff.

Not necessarily.

A visitor coming to 'buy cars' is on a mission.

Someone going to 'cars' could be looking for pictures, specs, general info, and of course, women

The first guy is closer to a sale.

Less traffic but more potent.

I definitely believe in the power of one-word generics, however, as a domainer who belongs to the "20th Century Club" (people who registered names prior to 2000), I've witnessed the namespace evolution of the ascii field but more importantly, recall the different notions and ideas that domainers had at varying points along the way.

In 1998, if it wasn't a category killing one-word generic, it was considered to be "garbage". People like Frank Schilling recognized the massive power and value inherent to viable keyword combination's that represented real world search terms. As best I can tell, IDN.com is today about where ascii.com was in 1999 or 2000- both in 'domainer mentality' and namespace availability. The opportunity to get авто.com in Russian is long gone today, just as it was long gone for autos.com in 1999, however, fantastic keyword combos are still sitting out there. I reason that hand-reg'd keyword combos are the best IDN opportunity available to me, today, from a capital efficiency standpoint.

I've capped my IDN portfolio to 50 names, seeing as I'm willing to hold them all for 10 years plus*, even absent earnings along the way. This means I'm being fairly deliberate in my buys/reg's and looking for some awfully good names :D

* barring some sort of shift in technology or user relevance that renders them obsolete

Nice to know the interest in combos has come up.

interesting comparison, I wonder how fast the next 'billion' users will take to get online? I'm guessing about 2 years. I wonder how many languages the movie '2012' has been translated into. I heard it's in China already...http://cnreviews.com/life/dining-sho..._20091118.html
