The Japanese SEM Landscape

Japan is a fascinating paid search market with options for campaigns on both Google and Yahoo. Unlike other Asian markets, these platforms have successfully embedded themselves within the Japanese search market. Given this familiarity, the digital marketing challenge then comes from managing the nuances of the Japanese language.

Keyword selection can be challenging due to Japan’s usage of 3 distinct scripts. We undertake a keyword research process that interprets this nuance and helps you target the right keywords to maximize your budget allocation.
