Google pulls plug on 2 sites, ends support for Tianya forum website [english.peopledaily.com.cn]

Google Inc said on Tuesday it will shut down two unpopular Chinese online services and end technical support for a Chinese-language forum website.

...

The Google plan encompasses closure of a self-developed website ranking page and a lifestyle site in China. The decision was made because of "lower-than-expected demand", according to the posting.

Google will also discontinue technical support for two services for local partner Tianya.cn this week, the firm said.

Tianya.cn utilizes Google's technologies to power some of its website functions.
