From [zdnet.com.com...] an article by Stephanie Olsen.

Ask Jeeves on Monday unveiled a Japanese Web site, the search company's first international venture in four years.


The new Japanese venture could spell competition for Web search stalwarts in that country, where Yahoo Japan, a joint venture between Yahoo and Softbank, dominates. Google, the No. 1 search property in the United States, also operates a Web site and advertising arm in Japan.

More traffic means more Google Adwords displayed means more revenue.
