>>The search service, for instance, will put names of customers that have bought a keyword or search catalog, among "Highly Recommended Sites" along with the search results, said Zheng.<<
So buying a keyword means you are highly recommended - not sponsored, or a premium ad, or paid listing, or whatever. Sounds like search engines in the US a while back.
So you can still BUY your Recommendation gongs down China way? I have a feeling the Chinese are very smart guys and Google's competitition will have to do much better than that to compete seriously.
Also, I get the impression that a lot of the services offered in China are directory listings rather than search engines. Are there any spidering engines in China that could give Google a run for their money?
Another thing, on Google's latest update, the chinese search result is not very accurate.
Some people complained that while searching long chinese phrase on google,
they must use quotation marks to quote it, otherwise the phrase will be separated into several short chinese phrases, and the retured results is not what they really want.
I don't think it is well to separate one long phrase into severl short phrases while Google has the accurate search reulst.
The Intelligent Chinses Words Divided Syncopation Technology is the soul factor to influence chinese search result of Google & Baidu.
The both search engine are racing on it.
As I read it, "The regulation aims to ensure all Internet service providers in China meet certain technical requirements" means censorship.
