So... Foreign traffic is no longer "worthless"

Remember the years when ppl on dnforum etc used to say that only North American traffic was valuable and CPM companies didn't give too much for Asian countries?

After seeing the PPC for some of these keywords it is solid evidence that online advertising is strong in countries such as Japan etc

Well, it was worthless in as much as they didn't have a clue what to do with it. Some of them still don't and probably cannot even see that it might be sensible to do some research to find out. Why on earth would anyone want to market to people who cannot speak English and do not have a bank acount denominated in American Dollars? I me what would be the point?

You absolutely crack me up!!!

Foreign traffic doesn't convert because the content is all in English...
Also no one Japanese I know wants to use their credit card on a site they can't read.
Everything popular in the English world is not popular in Japan.

Re: So... Foreign traffic is no longer "worthless"

There probably was a point in time in 1994 when even North American traffic was worthless...and those damn domains were costing $0.00.

Re: So... Foreign traffic is no longer "worthless"

It's worth 0$ or Reg. fee.

also,

because pretty soon u will be spinning yourself into the neverending pit of registering garbage.


Well, Here I am in the bottom of the pit. Boy am I dizzy. They must have been right. I don't see any $ here. So my domains must be worth 0$. BTW. What should I do with all these huge stacks of Ұ I see lying around down here?

Yea... I think its virtually impossible to pick up good keywords that gross over 50 cents in the U.S. (keywords directly unless you purchase them)

In Japan etc you can pick up keywords that pick up over $1 for the main keyword!

Shania Twain? Rap music?

I don't know for sure so how about the reverse of that statement? Not everything that is popular in Japan is popular in the west.

Pachinko!

Whether you have Kanji support or not, it is correct!

Yes, and it's saying, "Ahhhhhh!"

Re: So... Foreign traffic is no longer "worthless"

Actually Hip Hop is huge in Japan.
More people know Coolio & rappers than they know what PayPal or ebay is.
PayPal doesn't have a Japanese interface
So Japanese people generally don't use it.
