Arabic Traffic continues to trend up

Wondering if anyone else is seeing their Arabic traffic steadily climbing. I can now predict that many of our Arabic domains are on track to earn over $100 each this year at Namedrive. That being said, traffic is perhaps 1% of where it may be heading over the next 5 years. Russian traffic continues to be king, but nice to see Arabic really making a nice consistant showing month to month and growing.

I have received a couple of offers via SEDO recently, reminded me that I need to list them as not for sale via SEDO or increase the min offer

btw I have noticed traffic going up as well.

Well for me Egypt is on terms with Russia and Kuwait with Japan, but Saudi is out on its own. Not from Libya lately though.

Thought I would share some of the more active active names and stats from May 1- May 15. Comments and corrections on translations by native speakers welcome. PPC has certainly improved on Arabic, seems it used to be only pennies, the best on this batch is .32. Welcome anyone else that might want to share their trends or stats as well.

2 weeks of traffic/ revenue for May 2011:

الوطن.com Homeland/Motherland US$ 4.39 422 65 % 15.40 US $ 0.07 US$ 10.39
حراج.com Car Store US $ 5.70 418 149 % 35.65 US $ 0.04 US$ 13.65
الدستور.com Constitution US $ 1.32 355 68 % 19.15 US $ 0.02 US$ 3.72
طيران.com Flights US $ 3.82 145 34 % 23.45 US $ 0.11 US$ 26.33
مصارعه.com Wresting US $ 1.67 90 17 % 18.89 US $ 0.10 US$ 18.57
سفاري.com Safari US $ 1.29 32 4 % 12.50 US $ 0.32 US$ 40.31
طبخ.com Cook US $ 0.55 62 11 % 17.74 US $ 0.05 US$ 8.81
حسام.com Hossam US $ 0.72 44 5 % 11.36 US $ 0.14 US$ 16.39
Thanks for sharing your Arabic stats Bill. Excellent development. The IDN road is definitely for marathoners and not sprinters

Re: Arabic Traffic continues to trend up

I think IDNs are closer to boxing then to a marathon as they can and did start slowly, 11 years for 11 rounds? but either way in boxing there are only 12 rounds and everyone should remember a KO is possible at any given moment and then it's all over, just like that.

As long as we get a knock-out before the end of the 12th. Points decisions are normally rigged :o

FWIW, our Thai traffic is increasing at an alarmingly good rate, averaging 10% to 15% increase per *month* the last 8 months.

Long may it continue, hopefully to the 15th round and beyond. I love those old-style boxing matches that had "unlimited rounds". Now that was pugilism.

Would be nice if most domains we had would show these numbers. Maybe they will do just that after it will all be in Arabic/Other languages...

In Russian the clear leader is also porno (порно).

Re: Arabic Traffic continues to trend up

Have you tried the "Adult icon" template? I think it has the best CTR.

A parked IDN generating $529.27 in a month, that's awesome and probably the highest revenue for a parked IDN. Hats off to you. I would think if you get this developed, you should at least be able to multiply income by 10-100 times.

Cheers!

Re: Arabic Traffic continues to trend up

Yesterday, was best day ever in both Views and Clicks.

Previous record had only lasted a few days. Don't expect this one to hold long either.

Saudi 30% of everything.

Arabic now over 70%.
