A way to find IDNs that have been indexed by the search engines...

http://search.yahoo.co.jp/search?p=i...a=vl%3Dlang_ja

In other words, I am searching Yahoo Japan, limiting myself to sites in Japanese and with the search key: inurl:xn--1

I could get more IDN sites by changing it to "xn--2" etc.

Hmmm, why not drop the 1 , inurl:xn-- gives 750.000 results and it seems to give idn's alright.

Work your way through the Hirigana and Katakana?

If you drop the "1" then Yahoo returns all the results with "xn" in them as it ignores the trailing "--". Of course, that returns some IDN mixed in with the rest, but my way gives a much much higher % of IDN in the results.

Yes, I played around with this a lot a few months ago. Yahoo only gives results in the domain. Google gives them anywhere in the URL. It has been common place if not the norm to add subdirectories in Japanese to ASCII domains to make URLs. The Google results are therefore worthless.

Interesting exercise. Overall pretty sad collection of sites out there so far.

Re: A way to find IDNs that have been indexed by the search engines...

The one interesting result I've spotted so far is ポケモン.com, which shows up #45 on a search for ポケモン (and #61 on Google). Considering the competition and the massive OT that's quite impressive. The site even has a counter showing 525 visitors so far today... that must pretty much all be link/search engine traffic.
