.com vs .net type-ins

For those of have the same names in both .net .com

What % of traffic goes to net?

Have you noticed differences depending on culture/language e.g russians are less likely to use net and arabs are more likely to use them etc..

Re: .com vs .net type-ins

A few years ago I did some analysis of my portfolio like you describe. I couldn't find the thread I posted this in so here it is again.

There is much more traffic now but I would have to say that the ratio hasn't changed much or if anything has happened it is that .com has grown stronger.

Re: .com vs .net type-ins

thought I'd share too, this also covers your earlier question in another thread about self sustaining portfolios:



I have an excel that produces a ton of these kinds of charts from my traffic data, and thought this one might be interesting.

It is looking at which parts of my portfolio are self-sustaining.
The blue representing renewal costs, and the red, parking income.
  • Japanese .coms as you can see just about hold their own
  • Russian and Arabic dot coms also look promising
  • Russian dot nets have always produced good traffic
  • and despite me having a proper sexy collection of top tier dot jps, they produce little revenue

while the numbers may be missing from the charts, the scale is accurate - so an interesting observation for example, is that I have roughly the same number of chinese & arabic domains, yet the revenue gap between the two is considerable.
Likewise Russian dot nets vs Arabic dot nets

Re: .com vs .net type-ins

Alpha, would you say that Russian .nets outperform .com, or are your Russian .net names much better keywords than your .coms?

yes I only have very good .net keywords, and the data reflects that.

But I've dropped a lot of average Russian .nets too, and can say 100% confidently that an average .net will not out perform an average .com

Re: .com vs .net type-ins

that is very insightful. thanks.

it's good to see that the idn.com outperforms the .jp.

I did a few random japanese searches last week and felt that the ads showed more .jp domains more co.jp than jp and a few com.
