eventual increase in traffic

I was just wondering how much the traffic can increase with IE7 becoming really popular. Is it 10x, 100x or more? What do you expect? I am more interested with arabic IDNs traffic.

don't expect that to happen in a day

I expect the traffic will double every year and 50x may be a saturation point but 100x is a little unrealistic in the near future .

that's my view about the arabic market

Re: eventual increase in traffic

it depends on the quality; as mentioned already, even without IE7 french IDNs are booming in trafic.

The eventual traffic will very much depend on Internet population and how often people type-in. Since French domains with accents are no different from latin ASCII domains, i would expect increment to be basically 5-6 times even with everyone adopting IE7.

As for Arabic, the increment will be up to 50 times as G has indicated. The increment for non-alphabet languages like Japanese, Chinese, and Korean will be even greater

Re: eventual increase in traffic

Personally, I am optimistic that the increase of arabic traffic will be at least 10x. The idea is that lots of arabs prefer writing in arabic, and if Microsoft highlights the IDN feature of their IE 7.0, a huge number of people will start using it. It's not a 2x, 3x, it's at least 10x...in the very ideal case, i see a 50x increase in one year.

But do you see a problem with adding the .com?

Right, not everyone will type the name with .com, but there will be a good percentage. This is what I expect.
