The .jp is ranking at spot 16, the .com is somewhere around 50.

Next test will be to switch the content, where I put the original 4 page content on the .jp and see if it can make the front page.

Still, adsense is pretty much mirroring ND - the .com clicks are worth 4 times that of the .jp clicks.

Are both .com and .jp domains hosted on your Japanese in-country server?
