Traffic to portugese .com

Anyone seeing bits of traffic to portugese .com IDN?

It seems that .com.br and .org.br have a lock on the market. Is it worth the effort to mine for terms?

.com.br does not support IDNs or started supporting only recently, as far as I know. Plus, it's always easier to type in idn.com than idn.com.br. So, I think it's a good idea. Plus, the language is in the top 10.

yes, it makes sense to me, after all, .com is the short version of .com.br and the word itself will take care of the previously needed .br part. Just my two cents. Don't forget about Portugal!

Some traffic, esp. if you grab the IDN version of sites that are in .com.br, people seem to want to type in .com rather than .com.br

Re: Traffic to portugese .com

I am getting some nice 25 cent clicks on some of the portuguese .coms.

Re: Traffic to portugese .com

Thanks... good points.

And heartening to hear there's some traffic to .com. That gives me a little more incentive to mine for terms, although superficially it looks like I'm way too late.

Re: Traffic to portugese .com

I also see some trickle of traffic to Portuguese domains. There are still some terms out there - the landscape is not as barren as Spanish - but they're disappearing quickly.

It seems to me that Portuguese is better than Brazilian Portuguese - use Google trends to check traffic origins. .com.br is too mighty in Brazil.

My finance.com, which is an incredible domain in other languages earns only 3 bucks a month!

Re: Traffic to portugese .com

Do Brazilian Portuguese and Portuguese Portuguese differ greatly?

If so, are there separate translators/dictionaries for them?

In my first pass I saw many of your Whois already :p

You can humor me while I dig up the dregs!

Well, i'm not sure if there are different dictionaries - Jose can best answer this question. But Google trends does show that even for words that are used in both places, the popularity can differ - google.com/trends?q=finan%C3%A7as+

I agree. Even one of my names with 1MM OVT is not performing well. Yet.

Same here. Great names, great overture, little traffic. Good CTR, though.

Re: Traffic to portugese .com

There are still some good single words out there. Not much as far as high-paying keywords, but still one-word generics. I got:

cabeça.com - Head

a couple of weeks ago, and yesterday, I picked up:

pássaro.com - Bird

and

pescoço.com - Neck

Re: Traffic to portugese .com

Yes. I'm pretty sure that in com.br the owner of the ASCII version is automatically assigned the "correct" IDN version of their domain.

Re: Traffic to portugese .com

Entrenches the existing domainer power structure. Not fair. Unjust.

My Portuguese domains don't get much traffic anyway, compared to French and Spanish.

I registered moçambicano.com (Mozambican in Portuguese), but I also have the ASCII version. There are still a lot of Portuguese names out there.

Only names with Portgual traffic will do well. Those targeted at Brazil will do very badly.

Re: Traffic to portugese .com

Hello everyone, i know this topic is old, but i´m new here and i thought i could say hello.
Well, the problem with brazillian traffic is that brazillians are used to type .com.br, even if a site is .com they would go for the com.br first.
Cheers.
