High OVT = High Traffic ?

I was wondering if there is a direct proportion relation between these 2. Does a higher OVT gaurantee a higher possibility for higher traffic for names? For such terms, do your other extensions ( eg. .net) get traffic compared to the .coms ?

For chinese names, i was seeing the normally the high OVT terms has low search engine results and vice-versa.

Re: High OVT = High Traffic ?

It doesn't always equal high traffic.
You must use common sense with the term to see if there is anything strange on the reason why OVT is so high.

For US OVT yes. In general, high US OVT means high traffic for most languages. Surprising, but true. Perhaps users using Yahoo.com have a higher tendency of type-in.

I see.. so besides OVT from the others ( Ch, tw, hk, jp etc), it's still neccessary to get a good US OVT for good terms.

But can anyone explain this?
