Indexing my Japanese pages first, but why?

I really haven't been checking the access logs to my web sites until recently, but now that I am updating the blogs and making new photo pages, I'm checking visitors at least once a day, just so I know what is going on. This is how I found some people hot-linking to my photos.

I realize that after I started to write the weblogs again, robots from all kinds of search engines are coming to crawl my web site. Which is good. The one that comes most often is Yahoo!, followed by msn bot and some others.

After I made the sitemap for Google Sitemap, Google does crawl my pages once a day. What is strange is that my weblongs in Japanese language is already indexed, but not the English version. This is much the same with Yahoo!. Many Japanese people are coming to see my pages in alpha-random talk through Yahoo! 's search result now, but not my english pages.

So what could be the difference? Both of my Japanese pages and English pages are being crawled at pretty much the same -- once a day for Google, couple times a day for Yahoo! . Maybe because there's far more informations in English than in Japanese and search engines can't get through to my site yet? This one, I will probably never figure out.

Anyway, I hope my Bali page get indexed soon so people can see it.
