Real Traffic from Japan?

Things seem to be changing. Traffic is increasing but there seems to be a new type of traffic that is emerging.

The bullshit traffic with very low click through rates is still there, but for a few popular domains with higher numbers of uniques we are now getting conversion rates typically around 50% rather than the characteristic 5% we have been getting.

It seems to me that much of the early traffic is Bots, people just experiment with the technology, and tyre kickers. I have my doubts whether most of it has been genuine browsers typing in, as experienced in ASCIIland. My perception is that this is at last beginning to change and the bona fide browser is now starting to assert his inalienable to navigate the World Wide Web.

Anyone else seeing similar?

Re: Real Traffic from Japan?

Most of my Japanese parked traffic is SE generated as names are indexed in yahoo and google now. I have yet to experience true type-in traffic on a major scale yet.
