Exclamation Russian help/clarification please

Hello,

I was just searching around, and I found this free, so I reg'd it:

телефона.com

I get a translation of "Telephone" or "The Telephone". It shows 1,554,204 Wordstat results, and over 32 Million Ya.ru results, as well as 29 Million Google.ru results, with 89,000 Google Images of phones.

Is this an accurate translation? This has got to be too good to be true. The .net seems to have been registered in February of this year, but they didn't take the .com (which seems odd). Can someone please help me understand what I have here?

Thanks!

Re: Russian help/clarification please

телефоны is what is getting the wordstat rather than телефона and though they both get trends HERE the latter gets higher -- It means nothing though as I cant get Russian right and have loads of wrong words in my account

Thanks Mulligan. Since телефоны is "telephones" and the Google Trends aren't outrageously different, does this help confirm what I have is "telephone"? Also, with the Wordstat, don't singular and plural terms (for the most part) have the same Wordstat value? Or how does that work? I am just a little confused, because, like I said before, it seems too good to be true that I would stumble onto a premium term at this point, but I am trying to figure out exactly what I have here...

Ah, ok. Thanks Explorer! So I am in the same realm as the "films" term that was being debated earlier...

Would this have value for SEO or subdomains? Or is it basically worthless? It does get some OK Google trends...

Thanks, I think most of this understand that it is possessive but are still not quite sure how it would be used, would it turn up in say?

Telephone Bill
Telephone Pole
Telephone Directory

If not what uses would it normally be put to ?

Yes, it could be used for sub-domaining.

Telephone.Melody or мелодия.телефона

Telephone.Number or номер.телефона

Telephone.Purchase or покупка.телефона

Telephone.Repair or ремонт.телефона

Re: Russian help/clarification please

Taking these as examples would it be mostly correct to say words ending in ы are plural and words ending in а are posessive?

Though I have a feeling it is nowhere as simple as that...

телефон is telephone
телефоны is telephones
телефона is "of telephone" or "telephone's"

Sweet, so it seems like a decent term after all. Anyone want to speculate as to why the .net was gone and the .com still available? I've seen this happen before, but almost exclusively (in my experience) in Chinese and some Japanese...

Thanks again Explorer, your expertise is greatly appreciated!

You are right. It's not as simple as that. Sometimes it's ы, sometimes it's и, sometimes it's а.

Yeah, but it didn't appear to be a drop. The .net was created on Feb. 27, 2006...
