Question Let's Discuss The Name: Why High Traffic?

A domain name <jckm.com>. The traffic for this domain is >1000 clicks/day (I check it from afte.. inside information).

I currently parked it on Aft... indicating N,NNN unique clicks in a few days (the domains have not been parked there for a full month).

Trafice: 30% from US, 30%f from EU, 20 from Asia

(I'LL UPDATE THIS, PLEASE FOLLOW AND LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS)

11/28/2006 483
11/29/2006 1,230
11/30/2006 1,271
12/01/2006 1,266
12/02/2006 1,086
12/03/2006 1,059

However, even I don't know where the clicks come from? for what?

Please let me know if you have any idea. Thanks.

I would guess that you are getting some traffic intended for jckm.net and jckm.jp

Re: Let's Discuss The Name: Why High Traffic?

12-2 traffic: 1086:


You can follow the traffic on afternic. The traffic is still increasing since I parked there several days ago. Yesterday, the traffic is 3014, now is 4280.

From afternic inside info: from 11-28-2006 to 12-1-2006, the traffic ranges from 483-1272 (483, 1230, 1271, 1066). The traffic on 12-2-206 has not shown due to the delay web statistics.

That's all the infor here.

Two months ago, I parked afternic, the highest traffic is (>109,990/month) (data on Aug-07/2006. It is expecting the traffic will increase to a high number. please follow it.

thanks.

You should check yourself to see what region your traffic is coming from. If the traffic is out of Japan then jckm.jp is the Japan Customized Knife show website. Frankly I doubt it draws that much attention on the web but you may want to set your ads to kitchen utensils and see if you get click throughs.

Thank you. It seems the traffic is not from jckm.net or jckm.jp. The two web traffics are not very high and the two may get some traffic from word JCKM.

Here is location that the traffic form for JCKM.com:
Great Britain 42,5 %
United States 27,2 %
Hong Kong & Macao 15,0 %
China 6,1 %
France 2,4 %
Canada (en) 1,7 %

Any thought? thank you!

Re: Let's Discuss The Name: Why High Traffic?

Doesn't quite make sense, JCKM.com doesn't have an Alexa despite the high traffic claimed. Many of my idns got Alexa, unless my idns got more traffic?

Re: Let's Discuss The Name: Why High Traffic?

Thank you. I have never seen that Alexa show traffic data for any "parking" domain without website. I believe it's same for JCKM.com. The domain does not have website right now, so alexa has no data for it.

By the way, where is your idn parking? I like to learn your experience and comments. Thanks.

Re: Let's Discuss The Name: Why High Traffic?

Not quite, many parked idns got alexa. Depends on traffic.

Good example for idn with alexa is 新浪.com - it isn't parked, but got no website.


Site Stats for xn--efvx5o.com:

* Traffic Rank for xn--efvx5o.com: 2,234,980 (up294,582)

* Speed: Not availableWhat's This?

* Other sites that link to this site: 1

* Online Since: 27-Jan-2003

Re: Let's Discuss The Name: Why High Traffic?

Thanks. what is your expectation for the 新浪.com traffic (#/day)?

新浪(tm) is the chinese name for both "sina.com" and sina.com.cn (ranking 2nd and 10th globally, separately). It's very unusual special....I expect the traffic for 新浪.com >20,000, even more.

Well, i don't know, but for a chinese name to reach alexa 2,234,980, probably at least 500 a day. You know, how many chinese will install the Alexa toolbar? :o

Re: Let's Discuss The Name: Why High Traffic?

I believe it may be far beyond 500/day. Please check
sina.com
sina.cn
sina.net
sina.com.cn
and more.

SINA using different servers in china and other countries, but only one chinese translation for these website. The traffic is expected to be high.. I do not know how many chinese will install the Alexa toolbar..

It's possible tha aft== and alexa use different statistical methods, but still confusing me...thanks for comments.

Re: Let's Discuss The Name: Why High Traffic?

If you want to know where the traffic comes from, you have to host the website and check the server statistics. you can also try Google Analytics - www.google.com/analytics

But from experience, unexplanable traffic come and go just as quickly.

Re: Let's Discuss The Name: Why High Traffic?

My cynicism gives me visions of chromeguard here. How many links are we now unwittingly creating?

I have a four letter ascii with huge alexa and tons of (garbage) traffic. Irrelvant unless it converts.

Re: Let's Discuss The Name: Why High Traffic?

Got it, Touch. Just making a point.

Huge traffic is irrelevant if it does not convert. I have plenty of IDNs, too, with big traffic and no clicks. Consider ɛ.com, on many African keyboards, lotsa traffic, horrible CTR.

Garbage traffic (usually unwitting surfers) is irrelevant to value.

I would call this untargeted traffic. People typeing, many by accident, a character, looking for nothing in particular.

Whereas if someone took the effort to type in a word, they are looking for something specific.

Appearently, JCKM.com is different from ɛ.com or ¿.com. When you put a an idn (such as chinese) name in the address, IE6 (<=6) always show something like ɛ.com, ¿.com. ɛɛɛ.com. The is the reason for the traffic and clicks for ɛ.com, ¿.com.
