Backlinking Results (Results are In)

Hey guys I'm going through all the data again for the results of the backlink test.
Initially I ran it through automated software to get my data.

There has been a few changes in Google & MSN (Live) so I just want to do a manual check for which domains were indexed.

This is the Project info so far without the results

Back Linking Test

On September I started to do backlinking test to see what is the best way to index Japanese IDN Domains. This test did not try to achieve boosting rankings for the keyword it was just limited to indexing of the domains.

The Testing took place from September 22 till October 12th (Japan time).

Search Engines tested:
Google US
Google Japan
Yahoo US
Yahoo Japan
MSN
MSN Japan
Ask.com
Ask.jp

The domains were separated in 4 Groups in each group we mixed a variety of competitive & non competitive terms. Also each group contained around 3 dot jp domains,& a combination of 4 or 5 coms & nets generally. This is to also see if there would be any difference in using ccTLDs, & could backlinking methods be different. Also in each group there is a mixture of one two word katakana phrases, One or two character kanji words, & a mixture of katakana & kanji term.


Group 1
www.Punycode
All Backlinks has www.Punycode.EXT
3 www.Punycode.jp
2 www.Punycode.com
2 www.Punycode.net

Group 2
Punycode
All Backlinks have Punycode.EXT (no www).
4 Punycode.jp
3 Punycode.com
1 Punycode.net

Group 3
www.Unicode
All Backlinks has www.Unicode.EXT
3 www.Punycode.jp
3 www.Punycode.com
1 www.Punycode.net

Group 4
Unicode
All Backlinks have Unicode.EXT (no www).
3 Unicode.jp
3 Unicode.com
1 Unicode.net

You may ask questions I have run the data scans daily. Also you can post if what I wrote so far makes absolutely no sense at all.

& even though I did this test with my domains I'm hoping that others will look at the structure to help out testing in other languages.

Re: Backlinking Results (pre-results)

By looking through all of this I'll try to explain what I found.

1. Ask.jp or Ask.com:
Both are not IDN friendly
2. Yahoo.com & Yahoo Japan:
Both gave similar results. Punycode.EXT did just a little better than using www & Punicode.EXT, both. Using unicode was pretty bad only 3 domains were indexed.
Unique sidenote is that I have found a dot jp that is indexed in Yahoo Japan but not indexed in Yahoo US.
3. Google & Google Japan.
Google seemed to index the punycode quicker than unicode but it indexed almost everything equally.

4. Live & Live Japan (MSN)
MSN indexed a lot of the punycode backlinks & almost none of the unicode backlinks.
& just like with Yahoo I found 1 jp domain (different) that was indexed in the Japanese version of Live but not the English version.

My results makes it obvious that for at least these 3 Search Engines we should be using Punycode.
It also tells me occasionally there maybe domains that could show up in the local version of a search engine & not the US index.

Hopefully someone can run test with other languages & search engines...

You can post any specific questions you'd like.

Re: Backlinking Results (Results are In)

Update Part 2
Certainly use Method 2
After looking at recent stats this obvious did the best overall.

Method 4
Worked well in Yahoo for my dot jps but the dot coms aren't indexed.
Strange but true...

So dot coms do better with Punycode

I think dot jp, de, & cn results will be the same.

Anyone know how much are dot de to register? Or is there any info on them in English?
