Re: Chinese IDN Traffic?

You'll be surprised how SE traffic will appear for domains - i've IDNs that never appeared in Google, whether search with or without extension but analytics show Google traffic.

A person is not guilty until proven guilty, but for the case of traffic IDNs, particularly Asian IDNs, it is guilty of SE traffic until proven otherwise.

Here's some analytics data from some of my minisites for the past week. The stats are for about a hundred japanese names, a hundred chinese names and a dozen french names, and two or three german and swedish names.

You will notice that SE traffic for japanese names is 20 times of direct traffic.
