An Experiment

There are many sites which have both ASCII and IDN domains. I have sometimes wondered how well maintained the IDN is. Some sites I have encountered in the past neglect their IDN and so the IDN stops working but their ASCII continues to work as normal.

So, my thought for an experiment, is to make a positive impact on a site's IDN. Your participation would be appreciated.

I am thinking of a specific site, namely Korea University, which has the IDN http://고려대학교.한국 It is well integrated into their site ie they are using relative addressing so 고려대학교.한국 shows in the address bar.

We can collectively improve the Alexa Traffic Ranking of their IDN, which currently stands at #2527573

I am thinking the experiment would run for a month which takes us to 16th September.

Participation involves:-

① installing the Alexa Traffic Rank extension
② visiting http://고려대학교.한국 2 or 3 times a day for a month
③ promoting http://고려대학교.한국 on your social media/websites

Basically it is about getting http://고려대학교.한국 noticed, both within and outside of Korea University.

My gut feeling is that few people even within Korea University know they have an IDN.

Together I believe we can get http://고려대학교.한국 noticed and thus raise awareness of their IDN and IDNs in general

Are you game for this experiment?

Re: An Experiment

Hi André,

It seems worth a try (I'm betting on South Korea not being destroyed anytime soon). However, I won't participate, because I will not allow the Alexa extension anywhere near my computer. Sorry!

Re: An Experiment

Can you elaborate. What's wrong with the Alexa extension? Is it spyware?

Re: An Experiment

As I understand it, the Alexa extension records the sites you visit, and sends this info to alexa.com, so they can compute their site rankings. I have no reason to believe that alexa.com does anything evil with the info it gathers, but I would just as soon not share my browsing history with them, no matter how ethical they may be.

Re: An Experiment

Actually, Korea University could further internationalize their URL by having the pathname part in Korean Hangul.

eg the pathname of http://고려대학교.한국/mbshome/mbs/university/index.do is currently ASCII whereby it could so easily be Korean Hangul. In https://schappo.blogspot.co.uk/2017/...zation_31.html I describe how this could be achieved with Linux linking.

If you look at https://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/xn--2...e#trafficstats you will see that 100% of visitors are from United Kingdom. So, I guess that would be me
