article [news3.xinhuanet.com]
Google has announced the launch of Chinese search services designed to capture a portion of China's web market.

The services include a Chinese-English dictionary, weather reports, and people tracking capabilities.

The move seems to be a response to the launching of Yisou.com, a Yahoo-owned Chinese search engine.


It looks like Google just added some more local enhancements. The SERPs don't seem to be any different for the keywords I track.

It's a shame that Google never got their hands on the google.cn domain name. This site would have looked good there.

Good find bill, there has been quite a bit of activity in the Chinese Search Market recently, I guess Google doesn't want to be completely left out in the cold.

Yes, their recent investment in Baidu [webmasterworld.com] is only one part of that activity. This shows Google is willing to put in some extra effort to give the China market something more.
