Building your Best Strategy for SEO in Japan
Since the Google/Yahoo partnership in late 2010, Google has expanded its control of Japanese search, occupying a share of over 90% of the market. With search results on Yahoo! Japan now powered by Google, Japanese SEO has become a touch more straightforward, but the necessity for localization remains.
With a team in Japan, we are able to keep abreast of both search and user behavior trends, allowing you to focus your efforts in the right areas.
Understanding the 3 Japanese scripts and Japan’s general trend towards politeness is fundamental to executing content marketing efforts that connect with Japanese users.
