Type in the URL directly 100 33.3%
Use keyword search (to SQ) 92 30.7%

Re: Accessing URLs in advertisements from mobile phones japan

Very interesting stats, thanks for posting websjapan.

Phones not really used too much to surf the net where i am at the moment (Australia), interesting to see so many different ways of accessing URLs.

Re: Accessing URLs in advertisements from mobile phones japan

yeah, hardly anyone uses pcs for internet - its all cell phones. every site in japan needs to be cell phone compatible if it wants to be successful - even their facebook equivilant - mixi.jp - displays correctly!

what relly sucks is that not every phone is idn compatible!

lame...

Re: Accessing URLs in advertisements from mobile phones japan

Interesting Survey!

Seeing that Japanese people are massively using alternative ways of accessing URLs (Love the blank e-mail one, very creative), IDNs will definitly be seen as a godsend no?

Re: Accessing URLs in advertisements from mobile phones japan

not exactly sure cos i wasnt paying attention but i remember reading about google adsense for mobile either coming out for japan soon, or coming out in general.

i also saw a link somewhere, perhaps here, for a japanese mobile ad operator. anyone else got the link?

ND has a .mobi template that should be good for cell phones.
