I am considering buying a couple of .cn domains and I was wondering if anyone has any experience of the Adsense revenue for this market. Or is it just a good idea to get the domains, put up content and wait for 2-3 years for the value of advertising in the China Adsense market to hot up.

Just ordered two domains - just hope my server can handle all the traffic!

... or is it another $200 down the drain? We will have to wait and see.

Hi caran1

Do you use Adsense on the site?

The China market must be massive, the problems I see having is that I don't speak or read Chinese - I will need to use Google Translate to convert from English to Chinese (that will be fun) then I need to make sure my web pages can handle the Chinese characters.

As most of my content will be images / flash (interactive games) then I am hoping that Chinese people and others from other countries will be able to use the site easily.

What I don't have a clue about is - does Google currently deliver content through Adsense adverts to this market? and is it worth using this or focusing on another way to make it pay such as Travel Adverts.

Adsense price is very low in China, about $0.01 - 0.03 per click, so sell your products or service is better than CPM AD in Chinese Website if you want to earn money in China Market.

Hey, I am a Chinese.

I don't know the price of .cn domains in your country, but here in China .cn domains are rather cheap. You can buy one .cn domain at about 60RMB per year, that is about US $8 per year.

And now they are on promotion, just 1RMB(about US $0.13) for the first year and the regular price(about 60RMB) for the following years.

It is a good idea to buy some .cn domains to invest or to sell something in China.

But the adsense price is too low in China, I cannot bear it even if I am in China. Maybe you won't believe it. The average price of adsense on my site (Chinese visitors of course) is only $0.003-$0.01. I have changed all the adsense on my site.

By the way, I think you'll need to know some habits that our Chinese type domains such as PINYIN. And don't use too complex English words.

cragle - you could be correct, I may be crazy, who knows. I have the domains for 5 years so I will wait and see.

en99, thanks for the information, the cheapest I could get .cn domains was $20 (and this was on a "special new reduced price) they are still on sale in the US and UK at twice this on many domain registers.

The domain names I have can be marketed for English speaking market - except of course I have not seen many .cn domains listed in Google.com or co.uk

It does look like Adsense is not worth adding.

I think $20 is OK. That is not very much expensive.

I have had an idea.

Maybe you can investigate which companies in your country are going into China, and then you try buying the domains of these companies' names.

For example, when you hear ABCDEF company is going into China, and then you buy abcdef.cn immediately.

It is such a pity that I am not familiar with the companies in your country, otherwise I will make it myself.

Buying domain names of existing companies is a good way of losing a lot of money - in legal bills. Not a good idea.

Scotland, I tried using Adsense, but it is showing 2 impressions daily, while Awstats shows 300 Unique visitors. I don't know what the problem is

Hi Caran1

I am not an Adsense expert - that's why I joined webmaster world to learn more. However in regard to your adsense impressions - could it simply be that Adsense does not show stats if there is no adverts shown - just a guess and probably wrong.
