Google, Yahoo, Japan Registry team together to make useful IDN sites

I haven't looked at the Japan registry site but they already started an allience with Google, Yahoo & others to create an easy to use train portal

http://駅街ガイド.jp

They also registered alot of train station names (Sorry guys if I'm giving hints)

The Help page list the contributers

http://駅街ガイド.jp/notice.html

2 or 3 years these will be in use by next year guys they are moving already with things people actually use online.
I'm gonna try to get involved in this...

I know this will make you guys start those train station skills working but... think smart & about what you can sell...

Wow, holy crap. Our domains may hit sooner than we imagined. Really great detective work Olney. Mass promotion, site's built, we may be in for an awakening yet come early new year.

Re: Google, Yahoo, Japan Registry team together to make useful IDN sites

Lately I keep wondering is there really anything exciting happening on the regular domain front?

I swear within 2 months I'll be seeing TV shows in Japan about these & will report it back here.

Re: Google, Yahoo, Japan Registry team together to make useful IDN sites

That's awesome. Remember to push that, the news broke here first.

Do you see them pushing .com as well? Or will they push mostly .jp? I know it's the .jp registry so they will only push .jp but do you forsee companies mainly wanting .jp or .com?

Try to register some of your best japanese names as .jp as well -- just to be on the safe side!

I have tried. Most are taken by the hoarders of a few years ago.

I really hope that the hoarders hold out for high ransoms, leaving the .com in healthy shape.

True, I noticed that too. I'm debating whether or not to start registering the high-ovt two-term phrases in .jp, but the cost quickly adds up.

Re: Google, Yahoo, Japan Registry team together to make useful IDN sites

A little update for this site.  After a being up for a little while this site is doing extremely well for an idn.

Alexa ranking is overal 557,659. This week ranking is 190,942. With a reach of 8.5 million viewers.

The site has a predicted pagerank of 6 at the next update.



Consumer awareness it seems for idns is working. Now all we need is a universal way for them to get to our idns.

This is good news ya'll, it just proves idn's can be and are successful even without proper function yet.

It's a reach of 8.5/million, not 8.5 million. Quite different!

This Alexa data is well out of date. We are doing much better than that!
