Bâteau.com (Boat.com in French)
 
Would love to hear your opinion on this French IDN:

Bâteau.com

Stuck the term in Google.com and it returned over 16M results.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum Sampras.

Unfortunately, the proper word for "Boat" in French is "Bateau" and not "Bâteau".

See the search volumes on Google trends here.

Also, when searching the term in Google always use quotations, ie "Bâteau". Without the quotes, Google will return results for Bâteau and Bateau.

Good luck

Bâteau = 14,000
Bateau = 3,350,000

Google Results for "Bâteau" 218,000

This post is #2 in Google for "Bâteau"

French is a well mined language. You're not going to just hand reg a term like "boat" a couple months ago.

It's a turd.

I suggest reading more on the forum and figure out how you plan to go after IDN terms and identify them better before you waste much more money.

Cheers
