Japanese IDN traffic surge...

Hey all

I have 154 Japanese IDN's parked with Namedrive.com. The bulk of them are JP numerals/cities.

Just thought I report some exiting stats for my IDN brothers out there

Type-ins had been plodding along for the first week or so - average about 8 a day for ALL 154 sites...sad!

Then -

Sat 11th March - 16 hits

Sun 12th March - 31 hits

Mon 14th March - 121 hits

Wohoo! I'm hoping this is a definate upwards trend!

Anyone else seeing similar results?

Did you check if the traffic is from North America?

Re: Japanese IDN traffic surge...

Damn, I am not seeing any surge in traffic from North America. Are my JP domains unattractive :-?

Re: Japanese IDN traffic surge...

I don't think that people looking for IDN's to register click. Therefore some of the traffic should be legitimate people typing in IDN's looking for websites (direct type ins) from North America. Either that or they have some of the IP's coded incorrectly. Also, you can look to see if anyone typed in a search term on any particular domain. Some of mine have search terms entered.

Much of the traffic from North America at this time is probably due to people looking for terms to register.

So I think that some of the traffic is legitimate users and some are our fellow speculators.

Re: Japanese IDN traffic surge...

I actually had a surge in Chinese domain traffic yesterday. My Japanese names were pretty normal. Strange...
