my first arabic website using Arabic IDNS (interesting numbers)

for those interested in peoples reflections to international domain names , it was really great
i started a website for elections (in Arabic elections.net) الانتخابات.net (http://xn--mgbaaaekd2a9qva.net)
it really was a positive experience
first week got 5,000 visitors ( 15% of them wrote it directly )
second week 24% wrote it directly

3rd week 35% wrote it directly

now total after 20 days
i have 34% direct visitors ( people typing elections in the arabic language )

anyone can share similar experience ?

Thanks for sharing...good luck with your site.
Be nice to see how Google treats your keyword + good content for page rank over time.
Some say keyword in URL is king in algorithm. You have hit Goog page 6 for keyword الانتخابات

Re: my first arabic website using Arabic IDNS (interesting numbers)

haddady

the idea of the site is looks nice , but the only function in the site is may used once time every 4 years that people vote and the election will closed after some days

so what you will use other functions in the future to run the site and keep visitors for the next 4 years

good luck again

the com was already taken (owned by gee here)

.net has a lot of popular sites in Arab world...like aljazeera.net news site.
they are not as phobic about net vs. com but i think com is preferred if available.

good point , google is really giving high advantage to IDNS names , the fact is that i didn’t even optimize it , didnt do any SEO , youl notice i didn’t use SEO friendly links , or even have enough keywords and description to any of the pages , but that’s good news to all IDNS investors .

That is so true , if i wana keep it only to Jordan il have to wait 4 years , but again , making a website about elections here is very worthy , people tend to pay lots of money on elections in this 1 month every 4 years , so to answer your question i will not be able to maintain my visitors , for another 4 years , am thinking about making deals with people in other countries , let’s say Egypt , and sending users based on their geographical location to the website , this way such website can be a goldmine , but it decently is not easy
looking on the bright side : thousands of Jordanians typed the word in Arabic in their address bar , that drew a smile on my
face along with the money i got from 1 candidate who was interested

actually most news websites prefer to use .net here in jordan , they sometimes make the stupid mistake of leaving the .com available
but this doesnt apply on all websites , as basel said when thinking idns for arabs , there isnt a big gap between .com and .net , but for sure .com is worth more

Maybe you should put a forum on it where they can "discuss" politics and issues.
Subdivide by countries and topics.
That could make some nice content for your site as well.

Re: my first arabic website using Arabic IDNS (interesting numbers)

great haddady the elections in jordan was like fire yesterday exactlly in amman3
i think that alot of news and portals websites gets alot of paid banners from them

also i like the idea of this one about elections nuwabbook.com

for me if you get the result number 1 in google/jordan for this keyword before 1 month of the elections day , you may get alot of paid ads
i saw a mass advertising for it in all jordanians websites

good luck again in your site
for me im one of the people that occulting this elections
