Search stats for Arabic-help
 
A couple of questions. How do you get # of keyword searches for Arabic? GAKT doesn't seem to work for right to left languages. Also, is the domains value highly questionable if it is a right to left language and extension looks like it will not be fully internationalized anytime soon for that language? I'm sure these have been discussed before but a search of the forum didn't yield much. Thanks for any help.

Why do you mean by GAKT not working for right to left languages ?

On this page:
https://adwords.google.com/o/Targeti...AS#search.none

I paste in the Arabic term at the cursor on the left. The term jumps to the right side of the box. When I search I am getting no search results found. It sounds like it is working for you so I must be doing something wrong.

The term jumps to the right because the character set requires that in RTL languages. You'll see the same thing in Persian, Hebrew, etc.

If you're getting no results, then the term is definitely questionable.

Search a known term, like this one, currently at auction: المدينة

It didn't work for that term. You are getting a result for that term using that link?

yes it works with that link you posted. المدينة has exact searches 90,000
if you paste it like this المدينة.com with the .com it will show no searches. hope this helps.
