Cool My (Virtual) SnowTrip to Japan

My portfolio clearly shows I am a SnowBoarder and last night, I went to Japan!

… and brought home some really nice names with me. I already have heard Japan was a great powder spot but from what I have read yesterday, I have indeed to visit someday. Who knows, maybe one day, I’ll trade a name for a holiday in one of the resorts?!

Below are the names I got. They are all Geographic places with great travel ads value.
And it shows on the right side of a Google.co.jp search, despite the fact that the number of results might be really low. (Who cares about the 23,370,000,000 results from the “the” keyword Google search anyway?!)

トマム.com www.tomamu.co.jp
ルスツ.com www.rusutsu.co.jp
キロロ.com www.kiroro.co.jp
芸北.com www.geihoku.com
戸隠.com www.togakusi.com
八方尾根.com www.hakuba-happo.or.jp
栂池高原.com www.tsugaike.gr.jp
猪苗代.com www.inawashiro-ski.jp
石打丸山.com www.ishiuchi.or.jp


I regreat having missed Naeba, for just a few days and also not being able to register Hakuba for a Variant issue.

There are still a lot of resorts I didn’t register. PM me with some .net gift if you want some. (You know I love your wasted .net’s)

Thanks to http://www.snowjapan.com

Opinions?!

Re: My (Virtual) SnowTrip to Japan

Very good names jose -- easy to forward to a japanese ski travel affiliate (ahem, when they finally appear).

Overture peaked in Jan for Naeba and Zao, so brace for the lull in the middle of the year.

Re: My (Virtual) SnowTrip to Japan

Thank gammascalper. This just proves there are *still* a lot of opportunities left if people know where to look: in niche markets.

exactly -- although it does take time and persistence to drill down from 'credit cards' and 'loans' to niche markets.

You can ballpark that searches for your names peak at roughly 50% higher than what you see now.

Re: My (Virtual) SnowTrip to Japan

wow wow wow. Is it winter season on Japan?! It must be!

My PPC has exploded on those domains.

Japan is getting aware of IDN domains, that I can tell you.

What a diference a year makes. (2007 to 2008 )

P.S: Sorry to revive an old thread, but I think it's good info.
