Re: Post your highest score

oh, i do quantity - this is the 92nd one i've put live. The quality, hmm, well thats another matter.

btw, if anyone has any idea why the ads showing on that page are absolutely nothing to do with games, and more to do with trucks, i am real curious - coz as usual i am dumbfounded.

thx.

yes I know.

In fact I was having this conversation with Sarcle the other day.

searching ".com" on Google is enlightening to say the least.

It seems quite a common theme for Asian websites to put idn.com in their banners - it's almost like they have been waiting for us to reg these names :p

becomes a lot of work to be honest. we have been at this site for 3 months now on and off and have gone through 3 revisions already. Currently getting a pro "skin" done to complement the nice thai logo. Also getting all the titles and descriptions translated into thai.

This is the top thai search term (by far) though, so it will be worth in in about 6 months when we are riding high on the search engines and getting XXXX fresh visitors a day.

yes, and a lot of work I couldn't justify.

My strategy is to get ALL of my domains on a simple website, then those that show any real activity - I will invest time and money into developing.

You think you would be able to predict which ones do well wouldn't you, based on OVT?

nope.

I have names with 100's of 1000's of ovt with zero landings. I also have a domain with only a few hundred OVT that gets consistent nice $2 clicks.

That's because type-ins don't really exist to any statistical extent. Lots of people on this forum don't want to hear it, but its true. 99% of traffic is coming through having our domains turn up in search engines.

And for that, tools like OVT and google trends are 100000% useful.

So if you are planning to develop, absolutely believe what OVT and google trends tell you. because that is what real people are really searching for. If you just want to predict which IDNs people are typing in, you might as well not bother, because genuine type-ins are very far and few between and will be for years. Whenever someone tells me they are getting improvements in Thai type-ins, I tell them to look at google search results. That is where they find their improvements, not from type-ins.

We are getting several hundred daily visitors now and climbing up google.co.th. We know that Thais search around 300K times per day for this term. If we can get top 5, we will be doing maybe 10K visitors per day. That's not fantasy, that is what will happen. So if you have a top search term, develop, develop, and develop, its the only way to go.

Thats why at one point Our Focus changed from Search to bids , because basically if they are paying for it , there is a good reason.

Well, i said that on average 70-90% of traffic comes from search engines, and i've become the number one public enemy of resellers. :X
