A six month roundup on search habits, client attitudes, and tech movements in Japan.
Time flies. We are at our half year point now and so much has already happened this year to help shape the mood of Japan. We saw the devastating Tohoku earthquake on March 11 coupled with the tsunami and nuclear fears which still loom, the launch of the iPad 2 in May, the Sony data breach, the overall decline of mass media spending contrasted with the uptake in digital spend, and the soon to come resignation of yet another prime minister.
All these events obviously have a profound effect on the economy, business, and overall consumer sentiment. These impacts also bleed into the search industry and can affect online behaviours, client spend patterns, market entries, and more.
Below is a sort of six-month wrap up of what we are seeing in Japan across three key areas: search habits, client attitudes, and technology movements, all in relation to the search industry.
