Google Launches Deals Aggregator In China [news.idg.no]
Google has launched a new portal in China that catalogs group buying deals, a return to activity there after pulling back from its operations in China more than a year ago.
The site is called Google Shihui, which can be translated to mean timely benefit in English. Google launched the site on Tuesday as a public beta through its Google.cn domain. Last year, the company shut down its search engine on Google.cn and instead put a link on the page to its Hong Kong search engine at Google.com.hk.
Shihui is an experimental search feature that aims to help people find deals through China's enormous number of group buying sites, said Google spokesman Robin Moroney.
