advice for arabic IDNers

when you register a name it is better to secure all other versions

or at least register the version which will receive the most typeins ( OVT helps )

put your names in word document then replace this letter أ or إ by ا

you will get the non dotted version of this letter which will most probably receive more typein

These are not different versions of the word but rather a different version of one letter

Hope that helps many of you

What is the deal with arabic "keywords". I asked a few native speakers and they said that keywords are impossible as when you merge two different words the characters "stick".

Are keywords worthless in arabic? Is there a workaround? thx

I think he said "noting", as in, "notable, good info," not "nothing."

Also, I think it is great info as well, as Arabic is worthwhile to try to find regs, but a little more difficult (IMO) than Japanese, Russian, etc.

keywords are not worthless ... it is a technical issue that should be resolved

at the meantime stay away from combined words
