Improvement in Traffic at Namedrive

Definately seeing an uptick in traffic mainly Russian and Arabic, some Japanese too.
Even seeing some small traffic and clicks in Chinese.

70% increment. Truly amazing. So where do the bulk of the increase come from? As for 1000 or so views - it can easily be skewed by a name that gets indexed on google or yahoo.

Some increase there, but not as sharp as bill's. The avg-ppc drops significantly though. Bill's stats looks impressive. I guess I need to learn how to optimise the landing page.

Re: Improvement in Traffic at Namedrive

I think a lot depends on your language mix. Arabic and Russian increased significantly the past month. Japanese has fallen.

Re: Improvement in Traffic at Namedrive

I see improvements in all languages (even Thai) except for Korean, Chinese, and Japanese. Traffic to my Korean and Japanese domains is down considerably vs last month. Russian is the leader of the pack.

Re: Improvement in Traffic at Namedrive

There is now some search traffic from China flowing out of Yahoo and 3721, but you seem to need to be on URL forwarding to take advantage.

Japan is a bust, but everything else is looking much more promising.

It would seem that all of us are experiencing the same for Japanese. I wonder if Google or Yahoo downgraded ND ranking?

No it is pretty much spread across the board. The only one that looks strange is 宁夏.net (Chinese- Ningxia Province) which will get well over 100 hits. Chinese traffic is definately with many different IDNs being hit, with a few clicks here and there.
Up until December it was zero for all my Chinese so its a start.

At least 2/3 of traffic are coming from the regions ie. Asia for Japanese and Thai, coming from Europe for Russian.
104 out of 125 Chinese hits are Asia and highest Chinese click so far is .11

Same as Bill,
I was happy with the increase last month and the start of this month looks good too.

I think the mainland Chinese traffic is still blocked. The hits you see are perhaps from these unblocked Chinese Asia regions, such as Singapore, HK etc. Nevertheless, it is a very positive sign.

Domainsite reports good traffic for my Chinese domains but ND shows nil.

I just love the way people assume that I don't know what I am talking about.

And yes it is a ND parking page

Re: Improvement in Traffic at Namedrive

RD I am confused with your comments. Did you see exactly the same hits volume in ND and and in your own stats for Chinese domains?

All I meant is that Chinese traffic is increasing, but they are not fully reflected or reported by the ND stats yet.

These are the ND stats for the same domain.

http://img77.imageshack.us/my.php?im...7144601xb4.jpg

and another shot from Analytics.

http://img147.imageshack.us/my.php?i...7144838ox8.jpg

I am not sure where the confusion lies exactly. What I said was that we had search traffic coming out of China on domains that are URL forwarded to Namedrive. Actually it would appear that we had at least one direct as well.
Google/Analytics confirms the nature of the traffic short of Biometric details of the individuals involved. Where is the confusion?

Re: Improvement in Traffic at Namedrive

Well you confused me more. I haven't questioned what you are talking about. You should have quoted Touch's post above, not mine.

Your stats revealed that ND is blocking some traffics, eg, on Feb 12 ND shows 7 views but your own stats shows 18 unique views.

The above statement is the one that I took objection to. Analystics is showing all traffic for this domain coming from PRC apart from one or two clicks which come from DNLocal members, checking things out.

You are, however, correct that there does seem to be some discrepancy in the statistics. We can, however, conclude:

1) Search Traffic is coming out of China on search and can be monetized even for parked domains.

2) Most Search Traffic for the present for this particular domain is coming from Yahoo but the is also some coming from 3721.

3) It would seem that those searching Yahoo and 3721 are overwhelmingly using IE6 on an XP platform. We have as yet found no evidence of IE7 or Vista.

4) Traffic is being derived broadly from across the PRC and is not limited to one ISP or one Geographical Area.

5) The evidence to date suggests that there is little direct navigation of IDN within China.

As for Touchring, well I think is suffices to say that different criteria apply there. I realised along time ago that I didn't have the time or resources to take much of what he says seriously.

<<It would seem that all of us are experiencing the same for Japanese. I wonder if Google or Yahoo downgraded ND ranking?>> Touchring.

I mean what exactly is that suppose to mean. I haven't got a clue!

Re: Improvement in Traffic at Namedrive

All seem reasonable.
It is safe to say now that a high proportion of mainland Chinese traffic is still blocked by ND, right? In other words, the traffic growth seen in ND does not accurately reflect the actual growth rate of Chinese traffics.

Well I have no idea what is going on. If Analytics logged it, it must have resolved to the Namedrive Nameservers, but it might have timed out before the Landing Page was hit. Don't forget one of the big problems with the Firewall is the extent to which is slows down resolution. Because if you hook up to Analytics from a parking page, the Meta Tags are read before the redirection to the Landing Page the outcome might be a bit different than with a developed site where the Analytics Code is embedded on the Landing Page.

If a few more people hooked up parking pages to Analytics in this way, if there is something dodgy going on we would have a better chance of trying to figure out what it was.

I think Ningxia.net got reindexed by Baidu.com. Most of my chinese names fell out of Baidu.com a long time ago. I think you got lucky this time.
