Cairo is epi-centre of Arabic Internet

Seems pretty clear to me that the potential for traffic from Cairo is currently actually greater than the Gulf Area. Traffic it from Other which in the context of Arabic would appear to mean North Africa.

First two terms on the list mean Pyramids and the third one mean The Egyptian.

You pretty much have the droit there. Is this all typeins or is it indexed in search engines?

Re: Cairo is epi-centre of Arabic Internet

What keywords are you using for them? Are you using Arabic or English?

Nice traffic BTW!

It would depend on the keyword. If your keyword is about the pyramids or egyptian, definitely more traffic will come from North Africa.

Have you double checked using Google Trends?

This is also what i've been trying to find out all the while, how to gauge how much traffic is from type-in and how much from search engine - actually, Namedrive would be able to detect the referral url - if they incorporate this info, it will be fantastic for SEO.

I second this, it would be a great stat for Namedrive to track. Very useful for domain managers.

I have been playing around with a number of Arabic Keywords.

CTRs are very high and a lot of different Keywords seem to work almost equally well:

Current Keyword is: العاب Games

and todays statics so far are:

Sat, Jul 15th, 2006 US$ 0.96 106 48 % 45.28 US$ 0.02 US$ 9.06

Obviously, I won't get the PPC for a couple of days

Unhappy Re: Cairo is epi-centre of Arabic Internet

Sorry, but IMHO your top domains mean www.ahram.org.eg, Egyptian top Arabic Newspaper and Magazine. You might have a tm issue there.

http://www.dicts.info might be wrong... try one of these:
http://dictionary.sakhr.com
http://www.ectaco.com
http://www.al-awwal.com

Re: Cairo is epi-centre of Arabic Internet

Yes, there is a newspaper of this name and yes that may be where the traffic is coming from, but no there is most definitely not any TM issues. To be able to protect a TM you have to ensure that the word does not enter into general usage in the language. I think they are about 5,000 years too late on that one.

Many people brand on well known icons or landmarks of one form or another. It gives instant recognition and memorability. What it does not give you is a defencible trademark.

Re: Cairo is epi-centre of Arabic Internet

Ok. I was just saying that because the name of the newspaper has a different letter from the word pyramids. (the أ instead of a ا) Or are they the same, equivalent or abreviations?

The second is a simplified form of the first. Both are commonly used and largely interchangeable. The first is more correct but the second is more used.

Clearly, the Olympic Games committee are unaware of this and have been suing people in error.

I understand the IOC have a rational policy on this. I believe they accept that anyone is allow to use the term Olympic to brand their business as long as their business is not Athletics and as long as don't use the word Games.

Of course, it true that the greater risk of a name becoming generised, the more rigorously and jealously it is often defended.
