Most would have said the same about Arabic last year.

We now have a portfolio of about 600 names which is easily covering its renewals.

Hindi is a long-term bet, but when the boat comes in it is going to be a Super Tanker.

Anway in the scale of things what is the renewal of 500 odd names as a side bet?

sure, and I agree, no harm in taking a punt as long as you're not betting the farm on it

Sure, Both Arabic and Indian have been accused of having a crappy CPC, but that Arabic traffic makes up for the low CPC

my problem with Indian, is there's too many people saying that the people who can afford to buy anything online, are educated and can navigate in English - whereas the uneducated non-English speakers are piss poor. It's all anecdotal, and I understand the mobile phone argument - it just seems such a long shot to me; and much better places to put your $.

Well, I guess Google, Twitter and Microsoft have done bugger all market research then. They should have read the CIA Handbook.

But assuming texting will continue to dominate is a bit like all the uniformed comment in the Western Press a few years back that suggested that Chinese culture had a predeliction for the bicycle and would not become a major Car Market.
