Question for Greek speakers...

regarding multiple keyword domains and their order...

which would be correct

Αθήνα διαμερίσματα or διαμερίσματα Αθήνα for athens apartments?

I'm just using this as an example of a city specific product.

Re: Question for Greek speakers...

It can get really tricky as the endings of the words could change, other words needed to be included and so forth.

The correct direction of the words in the case above would be:

διαμερίσματα στήν Αθήνα

meaning apartments in Athens.

This would be the correct way for someone to type in as in direct navigation ( kinda of a long shot though since it involves three words).

The first string: "Αθήνα διαμερίσματα" could be used by someone to do a search in a SE.

If you want the English equivalent for Athens apartments it would be:

"Αθηναικά διαμερίσματα" and "διαμερίσματα Αθηνών" The second term would be used more likely.

My personal opinion would be the "διαμερίσματα στήν Αθήνα" would be the better term but the three words would kill its purpose.

Also, bear in mind that I have no knowledge if people would type a multi-word term consecutively or with a hyphen (-).

Personally, I have stayed away from regging multiple greek words for that reason. Mainly, I wouldn't expect much type-ins. Secondly, there are so many ways of describing the same thing, that I would have to reg a multitude of expressions just to cover a single subject.

The above is not to be taken as a blanket statement, or to deter you from regging multiple words. There are a bunch of cases where you can't go wrong.

I just hope I didn't confuse you with all this.

Re: Question for Greek speakers...

no you didn't confuse me... sort of emphasised what I was already thinking..

I have a basic understanding of modern greek (i'm better with attic and koine) so I've been trying to figure out in my head how the language shakes out in the internet, especially like you said with the different case endings and such.

I think i'm gonna reg a few varieties and see how the traffic is, they all have ovt and some good ovt at that so we'll see.

worst case scenario is I'm out $20, best case scenario, I retire early

thanks yanni, I look forward to many good conversations with you in the future

I think we've all said that to ourselves at one point or another!
