I registered 相談占い.jp instead of 占い 相談.jp (any value nonethless)?

I must have been sleeping when i regged this not paying attention to all the flags that it should be the opposite way however there are only 3000 results in google this way vs 30,000 the other way

Could this still be used as a branding name? like Consulting Fortune Telling etc maybe setup an adwords campaign?

or is it foul play vs fortune telling consulting

Wow, the stakes have gone higher, $60 a bet and the risk of typo. To think that Dave and i had been selling japanese cities for just 2 times .jp reg fee only a few days ago.

相談占い.jp -> Consultation fortune-telling
占い相談.jp -> Consultation of fortune-telling

Yahoo Search ""相談占い"" returns 49,300件
Yahoo Search ""占い相談"" returns 92,100件

No US OVT for both.

I dunno, you can register the other as well, in case it's a mistake. $30 per name? Same as my spanish and japan.tv, :-)

But what about the 2nd year? We have to be prepared to hold for at least 3 years.

Don't worry money talks when the time comes and you take your names elsewhere I'm sure they'll get worried.

It isn't wrong

Jeff,

相談占い.jp is not worthless but it is not as natural a combination as 占い相談.jp. My guess is if and when type-in traffic materializes for .jp sites, you will still get some traffic. Keep the faith - and I suppose as the beneficiary of your oversight, uh, thanks.

I own 占い相談 in .com and I'm not even sure it's that good.

It has >1mm overture but only 30k Google results and 90k yahoo.jp results? That's a red flag for me.

I think the others in the vein may do better.
