DCG's registration all done one day?

Has anyone noticed that DCG's registration of idns is like all done on the 20th March?? In comparison, most of us register everyday. I've not seen any registration done later than the 20th. Puzzling.

Re: DCG's registration all done one day?

I'd probably be more interested in the quality of his registrations..
I've heard the number but I've never heard any premium examples unless he's written them only in his executive section.

I'm just curious since he's public about having 5,000 IDNs.

Yes, he put some money into Chinese domains. But you have to search some junk domains to see where he is hiding :-).

We all get some junk in foreign languages, exception to native speakers.
DCG has the experience and resources to most likely have a pretty good collection across a lot of languages. I hope he shares some of his lists and strategy someday.

Also noticed he has registered equivalent of bilingual.com in Chinese...that was one we were after too, but also reg'd in March.

I think that question is to Giant...the ones I have seen that DCG registered were keywords we were after as well with (hopefully) correct translations, and minimum of 10,000,000 google.

東京湾.com

They are not bad registrations. He probably hired some people fluent in different languages in March and collected a list of words and then regged them all. Of course, there are not many good Chinese names left in March. Some of his Chinese regs are ok, but many others I wouldn't want to reg them myself. He probably got some good regs in other languages.

Re: DCG's registration all done one day?

He did well in the languages that weren't already fully mined in March, like Urkanian, Hindi, Icelandic, some Czech.

If those Japanese are representative, then maybe not so good in others.

At the end of the day, if he has a hit-rate of 5% he's laughing all the way to the bank with 250 good ones.

He didn't just hire a few people fluent in different languages - he registered 100+ different languages. All this done only in a span of a few weeks!

Re: DCG's registration all done one day?

He did say he used that multi-language translator which is not that accurate but spits out tens of results per query.

It was a brute force effort methinks.

bilingual.com is a top name in English, especially to Canadians, we have 2 formal languages. But 双语 is just an average name in Chinese, although you get more than 4M results from Google. To explain why, we should look at the make up of the people in an English speaking country and a mainly Chinese-speaking China. Canada's population speak many different languages daily, bilingual workers are in high demand. But 双语 is used in China when someone has some documents to be translated. If you say to some one "get me a bilingual person" in Chinese, people don't normally catch what you are saying, you have to explain that you need a person that can speak 2 languages.

I came across a couple when looking at Azeri, media related and probably Turkish. Very high quality indeed!

Re: DCG's registration all done one day?

Yes, this strategy is good for lesser mined languages, but somehow i feel that sooner or later Google will crack down on traffic outside of industrialized nations.

It will happen, only a matter of time, when enough advertisers complain about the non-conversion....

I think you will find that has been happening for a while, if anything the reverse is true will traffic from developed nations being clamped down on for lack of relevency. By contrast slowly but surely there does seem to be some acceptence that non American traffic might have some value. At the same time, I think there is a growing tendency for Google to screw everyone!

It depends on the type of product sold. Mail delivered consumer products (which attract the highest traffic) is mostly out - the cost of express mail delivery will be multiples of the product price.

Re: DCG's registration all done one day?

So he's bagging flies with a shotgun?

I've NEVER seen his WHOIS on any name I've been researching.

I'd say quite a low percentage of those 5000 names are actually worth registering.

I've encountered his WHOIS no less than 10 times, that hi-impact company.
