新北市.net

新北市.net (New Taipeh City)

http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%96%...8C%97%E5%B8%82
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Taipei

7 million people, biggest city in taiwan.

it gets 12k exact searches with google mostly from taiwan.

taiwan doesn't use baidu they have 50% google/50% yahoo according to statscounter.

so it would be ~20k exact.

what worries me that the city name with 市(city) is not the prime term which would be "new taipeh" in theory.

i found that chinese city names with the 市(city) - the more official but less used form - get far less exact searches than the city name alone.

Strangely this one gets far more exact searches than "new taipeh".

maybe because the city was renamed from Taipei County to New Taipeh City in 2010 and this has created some buzz and people are now searching for the official name,i don't know.

so what do you think? Is this something worth keeping or a candidate for pending delete?

The value of 東京.net is better than 東京市.net, and
the value of 台北.com is better than 台北市.com, and
the value of 南京.org is better than 南京市.org

That's no doubt about it.


As '新北市' still was a new city name, quite a fresh name, so most of the people use '新北市' as the search term on google at moment. and I believe that people will call '新北' on the conversations probably 1 or 2 year later -
when they feel much familiar with '新北' this 'new city name'

新北市.net V.S. 新北市.org

Re: 新北市.net

well if 新北市.net isn't the prime term i prefer 哈尔滨.org despite being an org

the only reason why i picked this up was that it gets a lot of exact searches and is also a huge city.

Re: 新北市.net

I recently sold a Japanese city .net to a native for $200. It was the version without the "市", the version with the "市" was available to hand reg, so I picked it up...

So don't know if it's the same with Chinese, but I think the .net without "市" is good.

Not always the case in Japan. Take for example 北杜市 (Hokuto city). It gets 6600 exact searches, while 北杜 gets only 390.

Re: 新北市.net

Use the Google Keywords Tool and select the 'exact' option. That shows what people are actually typing in, as opposed to website search results.

Re: 新北市.net

Native Japanese speakers have given opinion that when you write a city name having the shi 市 on the end is proper....that being said, I think there is more value without the shi for domainers....not necessarily for all end users. I think it is the best is to have both versions and the .net too and eliminate all competition.

Nice thing about Japanese and Chinese geos is the .jp and .cn are reserved, so .com should have top value. Surprises me more natives are not shopping for idn city names for development....with exception of Arabic which we get a few lowball inquiries each month.
