Yahoo! Japan (Tokyo) revealed that one week after the Tohoku Earthquake (11-17 March) the fastest rising internet search keywords, in the case of Ibaraki, was related to lifelines. Also, the Japanese representatives of one of the biggest search online search engines, America’s Google, too said that for Ibaraki, the top “Fastest Rising Search Keyword” (Words that suddenly rose in the search rankings) was related to “Hallyu.” These are the keywords of Ibaraki for the year.

Yahoo! Japan revealed in the “2011 Searchword rankings,” the fastest rising keyword searches that occured a week after the Tohoku Earthquake for each prefecture.

Within the Ibaraki prefecture, the top 5 search words starting from “Tsukuba City Water Cuts” at no.1 were all lifeline related words. Despite the destruction by the earthquake, it was understood that the Southern areas of the prefecture were still able to connect to the internet and clocked a large number of searches.

Also, in Google’s annual search rankings, the words that rose the quickest in ranks compared to the year before, for Ibaraki, were “JYJ Live.” JYJ is a Korean idol group, and made out of 3 former Tohoshinki members. In October, they held Lives at Kokuei Hitachi Kaihin Koen (Hitachinaka City) and search numbers increased mainly due to the Hallyu fans.

In relation to the Tohoku Earthquakes, the no.2 Keyword was a project started by local volunteers, the “Ganbappe! Ibaraki Project.” No. 3 and 4 were related to “B-Grade Gourmet” and at no. 5 were topics about the “strange” nature of having internet among the devastation in the prefecture.

The company also said that in this year’s prefectural rankings, aside from the 3 affected prefectures in Tohoku (Iwate, Miyagi, Fukushima) the other 44 prefectures’ ranked keywords were primarily about tourism, sports and entertainment.
