When you transliterate a name on WhatsMyJapaneseName.com we store this name and the transliteration. We then publicly advertise this transliteration using a sitemap. A sitemap is a simply document that helps search engines such as Google to index a website. Search engines might show this transliteration as a search result upon searching the name that was used to create the transliteration. We do not store who transliterated what name. See www.sitemaps.org for more information about this technique.
