Re: How much do you think IDN traffic will rise after IE7?

If I only had an idea of....

For each particular language in the associated country/countries...

a) how many people would be getting IE7
b) what percent of people that would represent
c) how aware they are about IDNs
d) how long it takes for people to learn that IDNs work with IE7
e) how much, if any, that Microsoft promotes the fact that IDNs work with IE7
f) how fast companies use and promote IDNs
g) if and when DNAME is implemented for IDN.IDN

Re: How much do you think IDN traffic will rise after IE7?

A good percentage of people are annoyed when IDN domains don't currently resolve.

Natural typin exists even now. What the average person doesn't understand is why typing in a domain in their language doesn't work.

Re: How much do you think IDN traffic will rise after IE7?

Well that looks like very good news.

The general level of almost extreme pessimism explains why the after market is so weak.

I have to say that I am a little astonished by these results, but we will just have to wait and see.

Re: How much do you think IDN traffic will rise after IE7?

please note the survey says "traffic" not "type-in traffic"....

Since 90% of my traffic comes from search engines, which will be relatively unaffected by IE7 launch, then a doubling of overall traffic represents a 10* increase in type-in traffic.

If the survey publisher really meant "type-in traffic" not "all traffic", then my vote needs recounting

I meant "all traffic".

WOW, Markits voted 50 times!

Hehe, anything's possible, just look at youtube, $1.65b for a one year old company.

Re: How much do you think IDN traffic will rise after IE7?

I think one month after it will probably Grow between 20% to 50%
So I just put 50%
I'm averaging about 60 uniques a day from Asia steady.
Could be a lot more though.

Re: How much do you think IDN traffic will rise after IE7?

This is just too difficult to call. Much depends what you mean by "a month after launch of IE7". Are we talking about from Auto Updates or just the downloadability of the English Version?

At some point there is going to be an "S" curve. The steepness of this S curve depends to what extent and how soon this taken up by popular culture and is effectively spread by Viral Marketing. At some point in time, traffic will climb a cliff, but we cannot be sure how steep that cliff is or exactly when we will encounter it.
It is possible that we are talking about a phenomenon right from day one, but that perhaps is an optimistic scenario.

Re: How much do you think IDN traffic will rise after IE7?

Yeah I got a feeling we'll all be wrong.
There are some that already started using it.

My Powerbook runs an update check once a week. I think many might have it the same on their Windows machine. It might take a week for massive updates.

I'll also check stats on existing sites.

If it "only" doubles every month after the auto-update, you'll be in a pretty good shape by the end of 07 :-).

Re: How much do you think IDN traffic will rise after IE7?

After the first month I think the traffic increase will be too small to count. Definately below 20%

Might depend on how good your names are and how large your portfolio is.
Those with smaller portfolios with higher quality names could see the big percentages.

The measurement of when the "first month" ends could be vague until we know how fast Microsoft will roll out the update.
But this is a fun debate...

Re: How much do you think IDN traffic will rise after IE7?

I expect those with country name, city name, and top sex names to see huge growth.

Everyone who finds about this new 'in my language' feature will go to see what the city they live in looks like.

Re: How much do you think IDN traffic will rise after IE7?

I believe whether it is double/triple/....fifty times more, I do believe more traffic will occur for all, however as stated previously it all depends on the individuals portfolio as to what extent the growth is felt

Re: How much do you think IDN traffic will rise after IE7?

Since IE-7 will come out as automatic update on November 1....adding the month in our "contest" would put the measurement period about December 1-7 versus any previous months for the same period.

Looking forward to seeing how everyone fares, and then how things progress month by month from there.
