Re: Someone here bought insurance.com in bangla/bengali

I thought they were Hindi when I saw them in the auction list, I think dynadot jacked up the font size. I thought Bengali displayed smaller than Hindi, I am sure this not the correct way to put this but whoever bought it might think they bought a Hindi name Just saying. I am done now and will delete rambling mess this if you wish

No problem Tim, I don't mind comments and ramblings in my threads. The most interesting bits of information are always in the off topic discussions

বিনামূল্যে has an exact GAKT of 16, so no surprises there.

বিনামূল্যে translated = free
so the surprising part is the 16

Re: Someone here bought insurance.com in bangla/bengali

Well people would normally search for free 'something' - e.g. free music, free movies, free games, free porn.

Yeah that's right. Be very interesting for languages like Bengali to see if the "explosion" in local language use on the net shows any signs of happening for real. GAKT is as good a way as any to detect that trend, presuming Google is big in the region which I guess it is.

What do the top Hindi / Bengali search terms do re: GAKT anyone?

Ah, I remember when even the best Arabic Generics would not show up in Google Search.

Nostalgia is not what it was.

Even broad search of 260 is pretty lame. So either this isn't prime or Bengali is hopeless.

My best Hindi keyword गेम gets 5,400 [exact] on desktops and 8,100 [exact] on mobile devices.

Some other top terms I don't own:
भारत - 12,100
क्रिकेट - 12,100
ताजमहल - 8,100

As for Bengali even 4 figure search volume seems pretty rare.

Coupled with the fact that Bengali doesn't have a IDN gTLD in the queue either.
Sounds like a loooong wait. Hoard a couple for the hell of it, but I wouldn't want to be carrying a ton of them, that sounds like a mortgage.

How long ago was that? Perhaps people were searching in Arabic but Google hadn't incorporated the results into their DB yet?

What's a prime Arabic search term? Be interesting to research, to see the growth pattern, timespan etc.

In 2004 when we started Chinese was largely in PinYin and Bitmap images. Later you had big five but Unicode took a while longer.

Arabic, not sure but probably around 2007 before it started showing up in Search.

Arabic never really took off parking wise until last year. Now it is like a house on fire.

To be honest, at the moment it would not make much difference if nothing else was making anything, which is about what is happening in relative terms.

Re: Someone here bought insurance.com in bangla/bengali

A very small sample, compared from older threads:

Arabic: الجنة had 13million results in Aug 2007 , now showing more then 80 million

Chinese: 闽 had 10 million results in mid 2006 , now showing 95 million

Cyrillic: инспекция went from 2.8 million in 2006 to 23 million google results

*анекдоты had 270k in wordstat.yandex.ru in 2006, then 800k in Aug 2010, It currently shows 1.9million

I don't believe there was an Arabic Internet of any significance in 2004. It is more likely there was nothing to Search.
