Why japanese domains suck

1. Yahoo.co.jp sucks, and they own search in Japan. Yahoo sucks in general, Yahoo Japan sucks worse.

2. Google changed the clickable area in adsense ads to a very small area, and Japanese users surf via mobile - harder to hit the ad. CTRs dropped down from 5% to 0% on all of my Japanese sites over the past month or two.

3. Google won't give you mobile adsense options unless you live in a country where serving it is supported, no matter where your surfers are. Guess what, they don't support mobile advertising in FI, so I can't put mobile adsense on my Japanese sites.

4. There are more reasons, but I'll stop now.


No, I'm not selling off my Japanese domains cheaply, but Japanese domains definitely suck at this point in time.

I'm guessing you don't have any high ranking mini-sites in the SE's.

Sarcle that i would say the same , i have domains with 600 ovt that made over $2.00 today.
When your domains start to age a bit report back !

Also i have not utilized any mobile ads for my sites and i avg way above 10% click thru , maybe you need to test different ad locations and templates.

Same but I will never list what I do and and how I do it. Last time I did I had some jealous asshole turn me into Adsense.

If I knew who it was I would punch that bitch in the face. If someone has a problem with me or my views talk to me in the thread or pm. Goes to show you when you try to help a community someone will try to fuck you. I'll never list domains or rev. again.

But you're right Genius it's easy to get sites up in rankings and make serious money. You know as we talked about this when we met.

Could be but then I've already worked out the problems I've had and what they stated.

Those aren't the ones making the money anyways.

My guess is google only cares about the ranked ones and the ones making rev. But I could be wrong about that as well. Hell I got Portugal banned from Namedrive yesterday. I have no idea what those idiots problems are. I do have an idea as to who fucked me on the other sites though.

Wow, that's really low of somebody to do that. I remember the thread and how much it encouraged everybody to do some development. It definitely encouraged me.

If I knew who it was, I'd punch the bitch after you took your shot.

We have a couple of self-appointed, self-righteous, holier-than-though "policemen" running around here. One of them turned me into namedrive several weeks ago after I tried to help the community. I wouldn't be surprised at all if this is the same person who turned you into google.
