Hassan – tu as employé un traducteur électronique n’est-ce pas? C’est pas une bonne idée – les mots sont vrai, mais la grammaire? Ah! Malheureusment, non…
Il y a beaucoup femmes musulmannes en Indondésie, mais je crois que il n’ya pas beaucoup qui peut parler le Française, Tamazight, ou l’Arab Maghrébin… Tu peut la chercher mais peut-être ne l’existe pas… essayez muslima.com…
The best name to use would be http://www.jodoh.com, why not just use Jodoh?
Jodoh seems to be a pretty common word when it comes to finding life partners or love. So, I would reckon that jodoh.com has probably been bought already…may be some one is selling?
I don’t know that you can ever fully weed out the “weirdos” but some simple question and answer stuff will go a ways to achieving this end. I would have though semi-annual events would be a good idea along with other social gatherings like a speed dating night or something…
Nice thoughts! Are you showing off with your command of another language?
I am married and have not been perusing any dating sites let alone Indonesian ones. I must admit though that I recently read something about an Indonesian dating site that stirred some debate about dirty old foreign men, young Indonesian women, and submissiveness…so, I guess the sites are out there. Whether or not they are succesful or not is a different question to which I do not have an answer.
The potential is there and indeed the name Jodoh.com is up for sale. It has been owned by someone who used to live in Indon. However, I like the idea of a cool dating website for Indonesia. Many have tried and failed but others sites have been successful financially like detik.com and the such.
When I spoke with the people at KOMPAS they told me that they have little interest in a dating website as it would cannibalize their “biro jodoh” in the paper. Btw, they also told me that the Biro Jodoh is extremely profitable for them and on a percentage basis has better margins than advertising because it takes no graphic design and no sales force. Food for thought.
Jodoh.com, it depends on the price, I’d imagine it’s going to take serious money. Domain prices these days are really high. I’m not opposed to spending biggish on a domain, because it’s a one-off thing, and it’s an investment that can keep repaying you for years – but I’d prefer a name in English, because the site is not going to be for Indonesians only, my idea is for an international site, dual language, something similar to Indonesian cupid, or perhaps it would be better to make it more niche, ie religion and/or ethnicity specific.
I wouldn’t worry about having an english name as with the right meta-tags the foreign crowd will find it–no prob. The main thing is to attract the ladies to the site–without the ladies any dating website is doomed–no matter how cool the name is–just my opinion.
Ample bosomed Rosa I think I know this girl
What about http://www.cintabersemi.com (or is it too dangdut? :p)
if Indonesian Cupid have the abbreviation IC,
Cinta Bersemi can have the abbreviate CBS hehehe…
just a thought :p
Dangdut is fine, but someone already owns cintabersemi.com, but going back a bit, I talked to the owner of jodoh.com for months, he’s a businessman in Colorado, once worked in Jakarta (Tony above actually got him to contact me), he didn’t want to sell the domain, so we were going to do a site together, he provides the domain and some money for office and marketing, I develop and run the site, but then the American financial troubles started and he became pretty vague about it all so I gave up on him. Anyway I’ve worked something out with a company in Hong Kong called ‘World Friends’ so shortly there’ll be a subdomain here, a co-branded site, it isn’t really a dating network more social networking with emphasis on learning languages, it’s an Asian network very big in Japan… so we’ll see how that goes.
What is the name of your dating website? I know you might have created one, but I have this idea for the name: http://www.akupadamu.com
Hi there Bonni, I don’t exactly have a dating site, there is http://meet.indonesiamatters.com/member/home.jhtml but it’s not strictly speaking a dating site. I like http://www.akupadamu.com
I think it is too nonsense to sign up a website to find a wife or husband!
