JP Monthly traffic growth

My developed sites aside, I have a little over 550 parked Japanese IDN .com and .nets. My numbers are an index with September as the base of 100. The trend is definitely moving in the right direction. A couple of sites were taken out and developed along the way. Traffic is Asia only.

I can't offer a base as readily for .jp traffic because more domains have been taken out of parking and developed changing the parked portfolio month to month.

Others please share. Breaking trends out by language appreciated.

Huge increase in both views and revenue in December. It would appear that I need to optimize these a bit better. Any hints?

Re: JP Monthly traffic growth

Now that I've corrected my own figures to make them Asia-only, they show basically the same trend. If anyone else has datapoints for Japanese traffic, please jump in!

I assume we're all using Namedrive for parking, right?

I added april to aug stats:

This shows that rather than a sharp upward trend, what we've seen the past 2 months is actually a recovery! :o

Re: JP Monthly traffic growth

Very interesting datapoint. I only got around to parking everything in August so I can't pull similar data prior to September. Can anyone else duplicate what touch has done?

And also, there is still the mystery of Alpha's downward trend...

yes i can do that. I've had a static Japanese parked Portfolio since April.
any new acquisitions i made generally get put in a difference ND account. so this is consistent-ish.

but it doesn't make any sense to me.

This looks better, you got a spike, probably SE caused in Sept. The trend is overall upwards.

Even though most of my Japanese domains were acquired before July, there is a significant number added afterwards - probably about 20% of the total.

So there's no massive leap, but things are definitely still on an upward trend.

Anyone else seeing a similar pattern?

Re: JP Monthly traffic growth

Corrected Japanese results are down 7% for hits and 28% for clicks on December.

Uncorrected Global (all languages) results are up 13% for hits and 28% for clicks.

Japanese is clearly lagging in performance vis-a-vis other languages. I would expect this trend to accelerate over the next couple of months due to delays in releasing Auto Updates and concerns relating to ActiveX in the Far East.

Re: JP Monthly traffic growth

I had an outstanding month in Asian traffic on JP IDN .com and .net in January. In raw terms I had a 96% increase in visits and a 153% increase in clicks compared to December. However, much of that growth was due to an outlier as one of my parked domains held the number one spot on yahoo.co.jp for about about 4 weeks, unfortunately my url forwarding was set improperly for 3 of those weeks but even a single week of performance of that domain threw all my numbers off significantly.

Taking out the outlier data, my visits increased 13 percent and clicks grew at a 10 percent rate.

Note: My developed sites aside, I have a little over 550 parked Japanese IDN .com and .nets. My numbers are an index with September as the base of 100. A couple of sites were taken out and developed along the way. Traffic is Asia only.

Anybody else with January numbers to report?
