Google to return to China after its market share falls [business-standard.com]
American search engine Google chose to apply for licence to operate in China, agreeing to abide by all the conditions imposed by the government here after its share in the burgeoning Chinese market declined to 9 per cent.
Since last year, Google has seen its share of the online mapping market shrink below 10 per cent while that its local rival Baidu Inc soared to 61 per cent, official media reports here said. Google maps were now listed third after Bidu and Mapbar.Com which has over 10 per cent market share, according to the domestic research company Analysys International.
