JapanUpdate.com given a complete overhaul

Date Posted: 2004-01-22

In the last month or so JapanUpdate.com has undergone a complete overhaul. Every single page on our website has been database driven and has been fully optimized to give you, our readers, as enjoyable a visit as possible. JapanUpdate.com has been completely re-organized so it is now much easier to find stories and information of value to you. Also, additional space has been made for advertising. If you own a business or need publicity, JapanUpdate.com is now more geared to serve you. Finally, page weight has been optimized to a minimum to allow quick viewing on even the slowest computers. Many of the old resources have also been improved, and other improvements are still in progress. Check us out at www.japanupdate.com.

Our website has been re-organized in a way to allow you to quickly access the information you need. Looking for a new restaurant to try? Click the “Gourmet” link on the navigation bar. Want to learn about Okinawan Culture? A new “Culture” section has been added. Other sections added include entertainment, travel, health & leisure, nature & ecology, science & technology, news, local beat, and opinions & letters, and more. Once you click into a category, only relevant stories will be shown.

Additional space has been added for advertisers on each page as well, and the new system gives far more coverage to our advertisers than was possible on the previous version of our website. Own a business and need help getting customers? JapanUpdate.com offers a large amount of visibility. For more information on web advertising, email us at webmaster@japanupdate.com.

Also, the beaches, hotels, and restaurants sections have all been improved. If you’re looking for fine dining, you can either click the “Gourmet” link if you want to read stories about restaurants on Okinawa, or you can click the “Restaurants” link if you want to read about a few of JapanUpdate.com’s featured restaurants. As for the beaches section, if you know of a beach that you would like added to our website, send an email to webmaster@japanupdate.com with pictures and information.

Many of the improvements are in the back-end and probably aren’t very noticeable by our visitors, but the improvements have made the website much more effective and powerful and leave a lot more room for improvement than was previously possible. There may be a few bugs left, but they will be cleaned up as soon as possible. A few improvements are still in the works such as advanced search capabilities, a comments section for each story where you can post your own opinions on the latest news, and new versions of the online classifieds, autos, personals, and forums. We will keep you updated when new resources are built.

We would like to thank our visitors for continued support over the years. Due to your loyalty, we are currently receiving over 30,000 pages per day making JapanUpdate.com one of the most popular websites in Japan. We hope you enjoy the new look and feel of our website. Please send all questions or comments to webmaster@japanupdate.com. Click onto our website at www.japanupdate.com.
