Arabic IDN domain vs English

I was wondering if I should use an Arabic idn domain or a "normal" English name, from a SEO side of view.

If your market is English speakers, use an English language domain. A domain is a major component of keyword matching. Therefore, if your audience searches in Arabic, you would benefit from an Arabic domain.

Re: Arabic IDN domain vs English

Interestingly, I have had quite a few very substantial PPCs on Arabic dot coms recently, although I rather suspect the adverts that are delivering these are in English. Seems that whilst there is limited demand for Arabic Keywords, the Google system is able to throw up relevant English adverts.
