So who is dripping in Diamonds?

We have these two in Hindi but I am not sure either means very much:


xn--t2brqg.net हीरा adamant diamond
xn--11b7c0a2a.com हीरक diamond

Someone must have done much better than that?

Re: So who is dripping in Diamonds?

I have ダイアモンド.com, which seems to be the secondary form of "diamond".

Re: So who is dripping in Diamonds?

None over here. The thing is in many languages 'diamond' is not an IDN. Whoever owns diamant.com has got it made. I count at least 9 languages (obviously the latin based languages) where diamant means diamond. Although the total population of those nine is probably dwarfed by that of Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Arabic, and Hindi speakers.

Yes, interesting. But when I introduce the English term all the Japanese terms tend to zero. Either the Japanese is not interested in Diamonds or Google Trends is total b*ll*cks!

Further to previous, the order of the searched terms seems to change the results. You get a more sensible result if you put the English term in second position. Still doesn't provide much confidence.

Re: So who is dripping in Diamonds?

Maybe over the weekend I can write up some on how to use it better.

You should realize Diamonds & Precious minerals aren't bought everyday online by many. It's the info on a store that you can go to that's important.

I don't expect many searches for diamond in Japanese compared to other terms.
Luxury item domains aren't sold at all by search value...

Re: So who is dripping in Diamonds?

I think its that google trends doesnt like mixing up languages.

if you put "diamonds" last, then it returns results, but only shows Japanese in the languages tab.

something is not right.. guess thats why its a "beta"

I entirely agree with that. Overture and Google are essential for verifying whether or not you have a primary term. Valuations are probably best done by benchmarking against the ASCII equivalent, or similar, where possilbe.

Yes, but the scary bit is knowing the difference. हीरा still only get 1880 pages of Google and my records show it only getting 504. It is therefore probably that it is still too early to start sifting the wheat from the chaff with Hindi. This is one of about 100 terms that are showing less than 1000 pages in Google that I am just too scared to let go of.

Re: So who is dripping in Diamonds?

When using Google Trends currently there is a benchmark for the amount of searches that will show up.
Trends is a comparison tool.

The first term has to have a certain amount of searches.
The second term can be below that limit.

The languages don't matter too much but your first term is the primary thing you are comparing.

Luxury items fall below that scale in Japanese. Even in overture there may only be 2,000 searches a month registered looking for a mink coat. But just those 2,000 searches might bring in over a million dollars in sales.

So the way I see it diamonds in many languages might not make it as the primary term. You have to compare it against a base term.

You guys should all have base terms that you are one word in your stock that ranks by itself in Trends. You can either use a high term or a low term. I usually use Anime because it's the second highest in my collection.
