Re: berufsunfaehigkeitsversicherungen.com is on auction

It's the plural: occupational disability insuranceES

Despite it's length it's a very good and competitive keyword.

Was it yours, DktoInc?

So a Typo then?

I guess there is plenty of potential for mispelling it.

But surely the odds of mispelling it favourably are not good?

Obviously, but otherwise a one word premium in German I guess.

Re: berufsunfaehigkeitsversicherungen.com is on auction

Give it a couple days. We'll probably have the buyer of this typo come on and condescend to us deluded fools and tell us how Germans don't use umlauts and how typos are preferred just like that Turk typo buyer in the other thread.

BTW

berufsunfaehigkeitsversicherungen 33 exact GAKT
berufsunfähigkeitsversicherungen 880 exact GAKT

berufsunfähigkeitsversicherung 33.000 exact GAKT

No, its no typo.
In germany the Umlauts Ä,Ö, Ü can also be written as AE, OE, UE - e.g. in domains, crossword puzzles, DOS or Linux .

A common typo from foreigners is the missing "E" at the and.

Example:
"Bücher" - Plural for "Books"

Correct: Bücher OR Buecher
Wrong: Bucher (without e)

So, you see... its realy simple. Especially we only have 3 Umlauts and one strange and very rar character...

Ä = AE
Ö = OE
Ü = UE
ß = SS

So its a Cipher.

But how do you decipher it once the Brits have nicked your Enigma Machine.

Technically it's not a typo. But as you know no one ever uses them outside crossword puzzles and ... domain names. And even there the IDN version pretty much always gets a lot more traffic than the ASCII version.

So where are all these foreigners trying to type German keywords without German keyboards? One major argument against the use of IDN always went like: "You'll miss out on international traffic."

Yeah, you'll find those at namepros.

Still working on that?

We'd probably start bombing ourselves then.

Don't mention the war.

Always kind of baffled me why people would navigate to sites they cannot read.

Having said that, it was one of Frank's better arguments against IDN.
