    Hi there,

    I don't know if this can help. I've seen in the appraisals section that people are using some tricks like / or * between characters to avoid informations about their domain being indexed by search engines.

    This makes it really hard to understand the domain name, maybe it could even "kill the wow effect".

    Why don't just use the cyrillic alphabet, or other alphabets that have nice homoglyphs character.

    So, instead of asking for appraisals writting your domain like that b*e*t*j*e*t.net or B/e/t/J/e/t.net you could just write BеtJеt.nеt it still look sexy but informations about the real domain will never get indexed since е is different from e

    Usefull Cyrillic Homoglyphs you can use : а,е,о,р,с,х

    You can find more homoglyphs from other alphabets

    hope that helps !

    I think what you are suggesting is similar to the practice of listing IDN's as english alphabet, and that is misrepresentation.

    Wildcards are an accepted and established practice for breaking up the name.

    Sorry I was not intending to change established rules, just an alternative for someting much more readable
    than F*i*l*m*s (.) c*c or A/s/s/e/t/./g/l/o/b/a/l/ as they appear in the appraisals section. So if it's not a good idea, by bad !

    Thanks.

    It basically does what OP suggested by automatically replacing some letters in the alphabet with cyrillic alphabet.

    I'm still not sold on the idea, but a great implementation for those who wish to do it.

    Why not post a screenshot?

    Until the time comes when G-bots read what is on a picture, I think it's the safest way.

    All these technologies, including making an image of it, will not prevent Google from interpreting the text. Google is reading signs in Streetview based on OCR, and is using advanced technologies to know what's in an image and what's on a website. They have patents for this as well.

    But can it read my illegible handwriting?

    Great I
    Yes, for images with OCR
    No, for homographs (Google doesn't interpret Cyrillic to convert it in Latin characters)

    Hi @Future Sensors, that's not the point. If you write something online that contains one or more cyrillic character Google will never substitute it in the indexing process... neither in the query processing

    Even if those 2 searches seems equal their results are different
    Just like https://www.google.com/search?q="wеight loss" is really different than https://www.google.com/search?q="weight loss"

    That's gave to many content producers the opportunity to fight against spiders that steal their online content. While those characters are still "readable" by human users, producers could use a simple script to check (before serving the content) who is the user. If the user is Googlebot, the server responds with the original content, in all the other cases server responds with the content containing cyrillic (still readable). In this way unwanted bot get the garbage and cannot be indexed with your content. That kind of cloaking is not a search engine optimization issue while the goal is not to mislead users.

    Hi

    i find it contrary and may even be contradictory, to the idea of getting exposure for your domains...
    if and when you are trying to hide them, from the eyes of google, yahoo, etc.

    if they didn't index your names, you'd be begging to get seen.

    imo...

    3. B e t J e t . n e t

    We hope that helps.

    Just thinking out loud...

    How about using a system that already existed that easily obfuscated your domain name while you discovered it and then recorded this information for you to use anytime you wanted?

    What if this feature is just one of dozens of cool features that helps you manage your domain portfolio?

    Well for me that would solve lots of hassles and make my life just a little easier. ;)

    why hide? what a reason? end-user knows that the domain is cost $8. he pays for the idea.

    posting correct domains helps to promote your domains and finding a buyer... e. g. i posted one of my hand regs on showcasing threads and offered to Nameproser for $20 he said not interested. I grace deleted the domain later he registered my domain and sold it for $500.
