Is Japanese type-in traffic upwards trend??

Further to Alpha's question on Japanese traffic, I did a check through the previous few months, from April till July.

It is quite obvious for my case, that Japanese type-in traffic is on a gradual upward trend, views (filter to Asia!) increasing steadily every month.

For other languages, like Arabic or Chinese, search engine traffic is very significant, so it's hard to determine the trend for natural type-in.

I think i'll give it another 2 or 3 more mths so that any indexing related factor is evened out, and then work out the trend based on my stats.

Meanwhile, anyone has similar or different observation?

Seems to be true although I had a spike in May.

Did you filter to Asia? Also, i found out that the trend is more obvious if we remove trademarks or generics that are promoted on japanese websites.

Same here. The growth is modest, but it's there. Each month has been higher in terms of traffic than the previous month, though the increases seem to be dampening down month to month (that's based on just 4 months data though). For April to July as a whole, the increase in traffic was 21% across 2,119 domains.

It could be that on the Japanese side, the few people (as a %) who have IDN-compatible browsers are pretty much tapped out, and the next growth spurt won't come until IE7 and wider user education.
