Alibaba.com Plans U.S. Push [online.wsj.com]

The push is Alibaba.com's latest effort to build its position outside China, where it runs one of the largest business-focused Web sites and is a well-known Internet brand.

Alibaba.com's English-language international site, in place since its founding a decade ago, already brings in the majority of the company's revenue. But the company, in which Yahoo Inc. is a significant shareholder, has been slow to grow in the U.S. As of March, only 1.3 million of Alibaba.com's 8.6 million users were U.S.-registered, according to the company. Alibaba.cn, the company's Chinese site, had 32 million registered users.
