Appraisal Help/Translation Clarification on Russian IDN Please

гмосква.com (xn--80adc2ajmv.com)

From what I can understand, "г москва" means "in Moscow" or "of Moscow," as in, "школы г москвы (Schools of Moscow)" and "больницы г москвы (Hospitals of Moscow)."

Either way, it has great stats:
367,262 Yandex Keyword for "г москва"
12,627,034 Yandex Search Engine for "г москва"
16,300,000 Google.ru for "г москва"

Any appraisals? My thoughts are that this could be a great directory site to Moscow (hotels of Moscow, Newspapers of Moscow, Restaurants of Moscow, etc)...

Appraisals and background info on the name are appreciated, and offers are always welcome, too (PM me or email domainstosell@hotmail.com if making an offer).

Thanks!

Explorer is an unknown quantity at this point
Re: Appraisal Help/Translation Clarification on Russian IDN Please

г is the first letter of the word "city". While there is a possibility of typing in "г.москва.com", гмосква.com is probably of little value.

Re: Appraisal Help/Translation Clarification on Russian IDN Please

To get any value out of this name you would really have to develop it. As it is, this term has no Ovt and would most likely not get type-in traffic.

IMHO these kinds of terms are best avoided. They are not natural as standalones and would probably seem strange to native speakers. There are also plenty of decent one word domains still available. Not of the caliber of 'moscow' but decent nonetheless.

- One more thing - throw out all of the 'tricks' of generating ASCII domains (like putting an 'e' in front of everything or adding 'world' at the end of everything). These most likely do not apply to many IDNs. And if you're not familiar with the language you'll probably get it wrong. Stick with one word terms.

Thanks for your replies...

Might there still be some value based on the Yandex resluts?

Actually, you are correct and I forgot to consider that. Although the way Yandex lists the terms and their results is really unclear. For a term with over 300K on Yandex I would expect to see some US Ovt. Because Yandex does not distinguish between singular, plural, possessive, or otherwise - US Ovt serves as a check of which form is actually receiving most of the searches. Usually one form stands out in US Ovt and that one mostly likely receives the bulk of the searches from Yandex.

There is some result on US OVT, albeit low: 52 for "г москва"...

Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it!
