Google, the No.1 search engine company in the world has announced to launch "university search" service in China. Google aims to help users to search for information about Chinese universities by launching the special service at the time when China's college entrance exam just ended. This is the first time Google offers service specifically to Chinese users.
Signs have shown that Google has paid more and more attentions to Chinese market. Sources from the company say Google has gained approval from Chinese government to put up branches in China. The office location in Shanghai has been fixed.
Google was once the No.1 Chinese search engine in China thanks to its early entry into Chinese market. But because it hasn't given sufficient attention to the Chinese market, it has been surpassed by Chinese enterprises like Baidu.
