I had some problems with pre-regs as I see others had as well... but I am now a proud owner of my first .biz... Sénégal.biz! Thanks Absalom! Do you think .biz will truly fly?

They're .biz - don't expect any traffic!

I've gotten some .biz traffic already. 2 views on prêts.biz.

From North America, but still, don't other IDNers count as traffic?

Hey, welcome back Grubstaker!

Thanks... I've been sitting on domains lately watching traffic increase... I haven't reg. any new ones except for my new .biz. Nice web-site domainstosell (CancúnHotel.com)... I like the way this one is layed out.

Might be from Canada. :p

You've probably registered a thousand .biz and .info, and not traffic! :o!?!

Not that many. Under 300

Not expecting any serious type-in traffic to them, apart from people looking for a domain name trying them out to see if they exist.

I'll build out a few to exploit the good keywords. The rest will go to PPC and wait to see if someone value them more than I do.

The Spanish .biz that everyone seems to regard as the #1 slot has been live now for 24 hours and has only had visits from boardmembers and the whois.sc bot.

You mean the $120 mark? Even .com for Spanish gets little hits (unless very good name or trademark), sure you know that?

For info:

Francophones only use .fr and .com
forget about IDNs in net, org and biz, TV only for Prime Prime names

Once they start to close the massive gap in Internet development vis-a-vis the UK for example that might change.

Nobody will run after IDN suddenly just because of explorer or another miracle;

I'm talking about latin IDNs; as far as french is concerned there are still thousands of opportunities in.com and .fr; ten thousands of ascii names in .info org and biz are still free why start with IDNs

Again a portfolio should be well balanced; I become to consider even our premium arabic IDNs as pure speculative investment.

Comparing EU and IDN I shall say .EU are becoming now attractive ( we sold 2 .eu à xxxx Euro last week); you will currently see more french EU pages running than french IDN pages.

Last but not least an exemple of market discrepancies :

sociétés.com (companies) is generating Euro 10 /Day
What is it's market value?

10 x 365 x 5 years? (=18 250 €)

I would be happy to sell it for the price; in France IDN are still seen as gadgets for hackers...The market is not ready yet.

Nice, since you do not believe in IDNs, well, i've still not received my christmas presents? Still waiting. :)

Dabsi, I have to say I was always scepticial about the value of Latin IDN, particular in Western European Languages. This is a totally different situation that with non-Latin languages. European languages have benefited from browser support to a much greater extent than Asian languages, but many don't really need it anything like as much. Fortunatately I only have a handful of French domains anyway.

If i were you, i would take that off Sedo and replace with Adsense plus some content, and then place a block on ads from societes.com. Takes only 2 hours or less work and you got yourself a proper site.

Btw, how do you get 10 euro a day with only 20+ views a day?

dabsi
7th January 2007, 03:32 PM
good question:
january figures til today:
sociétés.com 170 91 53.53% €0.49 €44.38

the new google feed at sedo is excellent ; it is now applicable for the french market; and finally clicks over 1 euro are not exceptional any more.

the key word used for sociétés.com is a good one :)


Thanks for your advise in shifting it away from sedo; but there you a serious content; and I have no time ( 2800 names + 210 projects are enough).

50 cents a click? Hard to believe, probably two or three bonus $5 clicks went thru. How about December?

I have to agree with Dabsi that, in the present, .fr and .com are king with French - IDN or ASCII. I get a lot of views and a few clicks on French .net (IDN and ASCII), but not enough to pay for reg fees yet. On the other hand, désirs.net gets far more uniques than any other French domain I have. I just can't monetize it well. Modefemme.net does well all-around and lefrançais.com and basededonnée.com (avg $0.90 per click) also do well.

I get views and clicks on Spanish .com and .net, and plenty of uniques on .biz but they are too new to judge.

90 cents per click? Incredible. Are you using ND or Sedo. Even for credit names, i get only 30 to 40 cents a click.

NEW! حماس.com (http://xn--mgblt4e.com/)
NEW! alqaeda.mobi (http://alqaeda.mobi/)

Well it would be interesting to get some comparative traffic figures.

Mind you the latter would probably get a let more monitoring by the CIA, who probably believe that all those squiggles are a just cunning ruse by Arab Terrorists to throw them off the scent and therefore just stick with English dot coms where all the bonafide info is.

ND. Hey, I am not going to question it. 6σ.com gets avg 63 cents. Most of my IDNs get 2 to 4 cents, though.
