Comparing most visited sites in Japan vs Brazil

What can we understand from the most accessed sites in Japan and Brazil? One of the most shocking things was to see in the Brazilian list an ADS site (ads) for adult sites (+18). This makes us understand that many Brazilians try to make money with adult sites in the country and in the world.

I was also impressed with the growth of the digital and physical products website, which surpasses access to the famous hotmart. Apparently manages to be more popular than youtube in Japan. The Google video site also apparently manages to outpace the hits of the famous Japanese site nico nico.

Netflix is relatively new in Japan that it doesn't even appear in the ranking of the 49 most visited sites in the country. In Brazil we had several advertising or invisible sites on the list, which conveys the idea that many try to profit from ads in a heavy and violent way, using alternatives other than Google Adsense or ADX.

I wanted to put the number of views for each country, but unfortunately the site I took as a source does not provide this data. We believe that the average number of hits for the first sites on the list is above 50 million per month. I hope you enjoyed the article, if you liked it share and leave your comments.

See What Japan Google Searches

At the end of 2017, Google revealed a list of the most performed searches on its search platform. In Brazil, the most searched term was Big Brother Brazil showing the level of culture. You will see that the Japanese are not so different from the Brazilians and are not as interested in knowledge as some imagine.

Let's start by showing the list of the 10 most searched terms in Japan and also in Brazil to make a comparison.


  1. Kobayashi Mao
  2. North Korea
  3. Dragon Quest 11
  4. Typhoon
  5. WBC
  6. Kazuyo Matsui
  7. Namie Amuro
  8. Fumika Shimizu
  9. iphone 8
  10. Chiemi Blouson


  1. Big Brother Brazil
  2. Brasileirão table
  3. And either
  4. Marcelo Rezende
  5. The call
  6. FGTS
  7. Sisu
  8. Hurricane Irma
  9. despacito
  10. The farm

This first ranking is about the words that had the most increase and consequently were the most searched in the world. Of course, there are several other words and terms that had more searches, but should not be selected for the ranking.

The most visited sites in japan and brazil

In the Japanese ranking we find several outstanding people, let's talk a little about them below. First we should mention the concern about North Korea and the Japanese summer typhoons. The Iphone 8 is another common and affordable thing for the Japanese, I feel sorry for everyone who lives in Brazil, which makes the device a status thing.

It was impressive to see the role-playing game Dragon Quest 11 as the 3rd most searched on Google. Perhaps its release on the Nintendo switch and other portable platforms has made the demand become great. The installed base of the 3DS plus the success of the switch and even the dear PS4 should cover a large part of Japanese netizens.

In fifth place we have the WBC which stands for World Boxing Council or national boxing council. I had no idea that the Japanese liked boxing that much.

Japanese from Google searches 2017

Now let's talk about the people who appeared in Japanese google searches in 2017.

Kobayashi Mao – A famous Japanese news presenter who was once an actress. Sadly, she died this year on June 22, 2017 at the age of 34 from breast cancer. This must be the main reason for high google searches.

Kazuyo Matsui – Japanese actress, investor, businesswoman, essayist, university professor and life counselor. The high search for this name on google was because the actress started talking about an affair that her husband of more than 17 years of marriage was having. A lot was talked about, even forbidden Viagra the man took.

Namie Amuro – A popular Japanese pop singer who announced her retirement on September 16, 2018.
