Domain Registration Contest win some money. IDN Tools.



IDN Tools and ElliotsBlog.com are co-sponsoring a IDN domain contest beginning today and ending in two weeks from today. All you have to do to win is register the IDN domain name with the highest footprint (explained below) and you will win $150. The second place winner will receive $100, and the third place winner will receive $50.

The domain’s footprint = average CPC x Google exact match search term (as determined by Google Adwords Keyword Tool as of 9 a.m. on the contest end date). Here is an example of how the highest
footprint will be determined: ฟรี.com (Free.com in Thai). The global monthly search volume is 7,480,000 x $0.43 (CPC) = 3,216,400 (footprint).

Contest Rules here: Link

The EXACT search volume for ฟรี is 2,900. The BROAD search volume is 6,120,000. Clarification as to which one to use?

Interesting contest though.

One word names only?

Anyway this will be an interesting indicator. We all know that the best ones are gone. But to which extent?
