.MOBI vs .ME


There are many hot discussions going on related to .me vs .mobi etc. Referring to one of them on Rick Schwartz's blog:

Guys who thought .mobi was a good idea should have been investing in .me. Something.mobi is not a jingle. Verb.me is. Noun4.me is.

Try to forget these ones: free4.me, hotels4.me, jobs4.me, mobiles4.me, phones4.me, pizza4.me or tickets4.me and there is 99.9% that you will not. Tell your friends about fancy.me, remortgage.me, replay.me or unlock.me and they will remember it too.

Before buying: always study the markets.

    Let us agree indeed that there is no difference at all between .com .mobi or .me on the technical level.

    Even not a tiny one. It is all the same on the Internet.

    They only things that distinguish them is the users’ perception. We also know it can be easily altered.

    Samsung was just a cheap Korean brand some decade ago, and certain.ly I would not consider buying it.

    Now my children love it.

    Anything can change with good marketing, and .me is sure.ly is one of those things.

    Recently, I have seen a sharp increase in the number of .mobi web pages indexed by Google.

    From 8.3 million some month ago to 22.6 million today.

    Track it yourself at http://www.google.com/search?q=site:mobi and http://www.google.com/search?q=site:me

    Now, it is time for .ME with only 1.4 million indexed pages to catch up. Let’s see how good are they.

    In just two month the above figures changed to 36 million for .mobi and 3.6 million for .me correspondingly. In fact, .me is the most fastest by the growth of pages indexed by Google. Let’s keep an eye on it.

    Also, I have heard a lot of industry frustration about .tel coming out while .mobi is still struggling. It will not fail if the lazy investors will develop their sites. The premium .mobi’s were sold with the requirement that they be developed within a certain timeframe. This timeframe was not achieved, and .mobi extended the deadline to January 2009. I believe that the development status and the .mobi response to non development will indicate the success or failure of this extension. I was very excited about this tld and am disappointed to see it coming down to the wire like this. A few more weeks and there will be quite a buzz…

    Stats from 6 January 2008 from Alexa’s top 1 million websites shows:

    .ME has already 357 sites in top 1 Milllion list!’

    .ASIA has now 91 in top 1 million.(dot .Asia launched 3-4 month before .ME did)

    .Mobi has 250 in top 1 million.(dot .Mobi launched 2 years before .ME did).


    .Me is the future.

    Although many companies have adopted .mobi for their brands, they have done it rather for the brand protection, not brand building. So most of the sites listed on http://mobisite.org/famousbrands.html are just like that.

    In top 1,000,000 Alexa site there are 534 .me and only 257 .mobi – considering that .mobi was out there for three times longer, the latter is certain.ly a loser.
