Use of 网 in simp chinese

Trying to get some feedback from native/speakers/readers.

Seems to be a leaning towards this shortened version (net) when referring to the internet - typically chinese.

Anyway being a newbie I checked on english usage of net as a prefix and most good net@#$%.com go back to the mid 90's.

I have subsequently picked up a few simp chinese prefix names in the hope that this is the adopted version.

网购物.com net shopping www.xn--g2x58yeyk.com for instance gets 13 million at Google.cn

网新闻.com news www.xn--efv838cm6p.com gets over 9 million at Google.cn

It looks like I am on the right track but advice would be appreciated.

Re: Use of 网 in simp chinese

Actually looking at the number of Google Adwords that the term 网购物 returns in addition to the 13M results searching between quotation marks, I would be very surprise if this term was junk in domaining terms.

Re: Use of 网 in simp chinese

Thanks Giant. That is interesting to note that Google is capable of throwing up Adwords terms that presumably nobody has bid. I think we have to assume that people won't bid on junk, especially when the companies involved appear to be local. Frankly, that is extremely worrying as due to a lack of any other data this has been a method we have used extensively to verify terms!

Thanks markits, it appears that responses come here when things are not correct or when a mistake is made. Very little positive reaction - except from a few. Others seem to titter in the background- ah well , that's life.

I assume that the term is the accepted term for net?

我的网.com is this OK

I think you have to look for the actual phrase - 网购物 - appearing in the ads. Baidu.com also shows ads for this term but taking a closer look you can see the only portion of the phrase that appears in the ads is 购物.

Also, checking out the search results you can see that 网购物 does not appear along but is usually the back end of another term.

These are the Baidu ads for example:

Re: Use of 网 in simp chinese

"Net Buying" is 网络购物 (i do not know if this is a popular term though), uses the full form, 网络. The shorten form 网 is used only at the back.
