When Google will come back to China ? When Google will come back to China ?Comments Off

Google available in China for over an hour ! 

Google had its own Easter miracle. For a very short time, Google’s services were available in China for the first time in over three years. South China Morning Post reported that mainland Chinese IP addresses were able to access Google websites from 11:30 PM Sunday, March 27 to 1:15AM the next day. Google has managed to slip through Chinese censorship by introducing a series of new servers in some Asian areas, which took the Chinese authorities quite some time to identify and block.

This was the first time that Google search engine was available in China since it got blocked unexpectedly four years ago, in 2012. This action took place six months after Google announced in a blog post that its search engine was “inconsistent and unreliable” in mainland China. 

 

Google winning it against China?

These hundred and five minutes of Google search engine available in China were the first glimmer of hope of a victory for the Internet search giant in its ongoing battle with China. Google closed its China search engine in 2010 after refusing to censor search results and threatened to leave the whole country a few months before that. The following year, Google said China had hacked its Gmail to stop social revolution of the anti-government group Jasmine Revolution.

In December 2014, the Google Mail service had been totally blocked after users were able to access Gmail messages through third party applications, such as Microsoft Outlook. YouTube, owned by Google, has also been blocked since 2009.

 

The “Great Firewall” still makes victims !  

The overall censorship from Google is part of the “Golden Shield” Project of China, operating for 18 years now and aiming to help the Ministry of Public Security (MPS) to control what Chinese citizens can see online. The blocking of Internet services is known as “the Great Firewall” and claimed many victims other than Google. Indeed, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat are some of the major social networks to not be available in China.

There was no press communication from Google or Chinese officials to the fact that the search engine had been available in China. Having said that, with Google Play Store’s arrival in China which will occur this year, a quick availability could have been a glance at the upcoming future …

It is important to know how to get past this ” Great Firewall”. If you want to launch your website in China, please contact our specialized agents, they will for sure meet your expectations!

Top 10 SEO companies in China Top 10 SEO companies in ChinaComments Off

I am working for a new ecommerce plateform(not online now), and to succeed I know that SEO on Baidu is of paramount importance. However competition is fierce. China accounts for half of the netizens worldwide, and it isvery hard to get visibility. The offer is as big as the demand; therefore you need to increase your visibility on the Chinese internet through SEO, Search Engine Optimization, on the main Chinese Search Engine in China.

From customer service to case study or pricing, let’s see together what is my top 10 SEO companies in China.

It is only my feeling based on the companies I have asked

1 – Gentlemen Marketing Agency

Located in Shanghai, it’s a medium-sized SEO company with 13 people. I have spoken with the founders and they are involved in their work and quite technical. They provide good services according to their case study, and they are quite good. They have worked with famous French Brands like L’Oréal, Avene, Rhodia, but their best case studies are with Tour Operators and in Industry. The only problem is the lack of experience with only 2 years of existence. This is my first choice.

Their website

Shifu

This company based in Jilin city is well-known for its competitive price and quite technical. However, only 2 people seem to run the company with in total just a handful of people. This makes you doubt their claim about working for some of the very famous clients they list on their website like Adecco, Trip advisor, Lux and Microsoft. I think they outsource everything and it is difficult to know the quality of their work. It will be my Second Choice.

Their website

Empire du milieuThis Paris-based company is French, small and efficient. It is a very good choice for small and medium projects. They have good rates, and it is difficult to know if their solution is efficient in China. They are working with ExtraFilm, Manitou, Jsitek or ECTM companies.

My Third choice.

Their Website

Mkt-China

 

This company located in Shanghai is very professional and perfect for industrial companies. The founder is an experienced man with a strong personality. They provide other services like consulting and event planning. They have very good rates, but according to their size it is also difficult to know if they do the job by themselves or outsource.

Their website Mkt-China

Nanjing marketing group

This company is based in Nanjing. They are not so professional in SEO but you can only work with them from 10 000 rmb per month. I like the way they introduce themselves. Evolis, Papa John’s, Rbbi and Kenes group work with them. However they haven’t done SEO for those, only social media campaigns.Difficult to know their SEO case studies.

Them Pro

This is one of the most expensive SEO companies in China. They brand themselves as the expert of SEO but are not very professional on Baidu. They are mostly experienced with Google SEO however Google has recently been completely banned from China so how it is difficult to know clearly about their expertise.They are part of Altima group, a Digital agency based in France. They are hard to reach and their case studies are few in number.Impossible to have information or any good meetings. I know that this company is not for me.

Market me China

The company has an impressive  list of customers and hase quite good rates but it seems to be a very small-sized company outsourcing everything it does in China. It is doubtful that they truly work with Sephora for the SEO as they claim or any other Top brands. It is sure that this Chinese lady has their partners.

Netconcepts China

Company located in Beijing, they should be a reference but dig deeper and you realize that it is not the case. The company is a typical Chinese company talking big and making lots of promises but totally quiet when asked the question: what do you really do for Chinese companies? They have a very long customer list but few clear case studies explaining what they really did. They are super pushy, send you email almost everyday.

Sekkei Studio

This company stationed in Shanghai is famous for its website design services, which are good. Sadly they don’t have a lot of case studies in SEO, and I can advice them in design but not in SEO. The founder David is friendly and nice person.

Their website

Sino traffic

 

Located in Honk-Kong and Shanghai, it’s a typical Chinese company with a huge list of customers without any explication of what they do. Beside the fact that their website is not really user-friendly,when you browse its content, it is very difficult to find their former client list, case study or any other relevant information. Plus, you often find 404 errors, making it harder to browse your way through the website.

The History of Baidu The History of BaiduComments Off

The History of Baidu

Baidu is now the 6th website in the world and the 1st one in China according to Alexa. This is thirteen years after its creation. In China the market share of Baidu is around 80% so we can say that there is a clear domination of Baidu in the country with the biggest number of Internet users (570 millions in the beginning of 2013).

Its creator Robin Li, is the 4th chinese billionaire. According to him, his search engine answers more answers and requests than all the other ones.

Creation of the company

In 1996, Li created the RankDex, a technology similar to the PageRank of Google. According to him, the process was invented before PageRank and Google copied it.

Then after this story, Robin Li raised 1,2 millions dollars and founded Baidu in Beijing in 2000. For him, it was strategic to be based in Beijing contrary to Hong Kong.

At the beginning, Baidu was just integrated into websites like Sohu or Sina. But in 2001, Li decided to make the big launch for everybody, Baidu.com was born. In 2004, he raised again $25 millions and succeeds to have the profitability threshold.

Then the investors of Baidu, thought that it could be great to sell the company to major American companies like Microsoft, Google or Yahoo. Instead of that, Robin Li insisted to make an IPO in New York into the Nasdaq. It was a huge success because the company was then valuated at more than $4 billions.

The situation of Baidu nowadays and the future

It’s been 8 years that Baidu was created. In China, we can say that it’s a real success because as we said earlier, the market share of Baidu is around 80%. The value of the company is also huge : $40 millions mainly thanks to the Baidu SEO and SEM strategy. The competitors are down. There was an initiative of the government to develop a search engine with Xinhua a press agency and China Mobile but for now we don’t hear a lot about that.

For the future, Baidu wants to go international. But it will be really hard because of the competition of Google worldwide and because Baidu has still a service of pirate music.

Baidu has announced that they will be free to provide Baidu iPhone input method-SDK for iOS APP developer (Software Development Kit), the developer can be ’embedded’ input in types of APP, so that users under normal circumstance use Baidu input in some relevant application.

As the iPhone is not open permission of input method, user need to ’Jail Break’ if they use third-party input method. Once the user who are not going to ’Jail Break’ or familiar with operation, then the choice of input method is limited, only Apple-approved. Input Method ‘embedded’, when text goes into the input state, it will start the associated applications.

Sogou (a kind of search engine in China, http://www.sogou.com/) had also been announced to open implantable input method SDK for iOS APP developer.

According to related reports, Baidu Search App iPhone version has been released recently. The relevant responsible person of Baidu mobile phone input method said:”This is just beginning”, “In fact, before we announced, there are many developers to contact and seek cooperation. At present, we are starting to co-operation with many well-known application providers, and we expect that there will be more ‘embedded’ input method applications on-line in the future. ”

China Mobile Challenges Baidu China Mobile Challenges Baidu(0)

China Mobile?s revenue will rise 7 percent to 484 billion yuan ($72 billion) this year, according to the average of 29 analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg. That would be the slowest increase since the company?s 1997 Hong Kong listing and the analysts estimate growth to keep decelerating through 2012.
Growth is slowing as more than 60 percent of China?s population owns a mobile phone, compared with less than 10 percent at the beginning of the decade.
China Mobile Communications Corp., parent of the listed company, last month reached agreement with China?s official Xinhua News Agency to partner in Internet search.
The company may also double sales of SIM cards over an unspecified period as the chips used in mobile phones are used in a wide range of products to give them communications capability, China Mobile Chairman Wang Jianzhou said. For example, putting a SIM card in a car would allow it to transmit details on its performance at any time, he said.

Baidu Purchases Boost Search Baidu Purchases Boost Search(0)

As the company grows, it aims to add ?meaningful revenue? outside China in the next five to 15 years, Li said, without providing a target for international sales.

Li didn?t indicate how much the company would invest in acquisitions, or provide a timeframe for making any purchases.

Baidu?s cost of continuing to comply with domestic self-censorship laws is giving Google a competitive advantage in the market, Baidu?s Li said in an interview in Beijing earlier Thursday.

Google Look to Cooperation with Chinese SOEs Google Look to Cooperation with Chinese SOEs(0)

Entering Google’s own recruitment information page, we can see on Google’s list of vacant positions are including departments of research and development, products, user interface, sales, management, human resources and marketing. The job locations are mainly Beijing and Shanghai.
The advertisements look interesting – they are not on recruitment sites but on news portals. So we can see Google’s purpose is not really to recruit, or at least its main purpose is not really to recruit, but to speak to the public “Google is coming back to China, and we are recruiting again.”
At the mean time, on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, Google’s CEO said to the press that they made “a mistake in China”.

Sine April 2010, Baidu and other Chinese internet companies started to recruit Google’s senior executives, leaving great vacancy in Google’s headquarter in China.
According to a senior official from Sohu, Google’s recruitment advertisements are sending a signal to the Chinese government and netizens that they have faith in running their business in China after their ICP licence was renewed.
The other thing that is shifting with Google’s recruitment strategy is its attitude toward Chinese government.

Google’s CEO Schmidt said , in an interview, he was an advocate of entering the China market, figuring it was better to engage even if Google had to operate with restrictions.
According to an insider from Baidu, China’s leading search engine service provider, which takes up 70% of China’s market share, “Google is looking forward to cooperation with China’s state-owned enterprises (SOEs). In the third quarter we will see a series of moves conducted by Google. And of course, searching services will still be their main service. Baidu has obtained an 25% increase in the last year, especially since Google’s trouble in China Mainland. I think Google’s return is driven by the great developments of other internet businesses, especially American and other foreign internet companies in China.”

Google Abandons Wave Google Abandons Wave(0)

Google said in a post last night that “Wave has not seen the adoption we would have liked” and that elements of Wave’s technology, including drag-and-drop and character-by-character live typing, are now as open source so users can “liberate their content from Wave”.

Urs Holzle, in his blog, said that Wave has not met Google’s expectation so the company has decided to terminate the development process of Google Wave as an independent product. Holzle also said, although Google Wave has a firm fan base, its popularity does not meet their previous expectations.

Google introduced their new cross-platform communication tool – Google Wave in the past year, looking forward it would become another revolutionary product following twitter.

However, the online community at the time was not very optimistic about Google Wave, who considered Google Wave was simply “a combination of email, Twitter and Google Talk”. They don’t know what actually they can do with Google Wave.

The initial goal of Google Wave was to reduce the reliance of Google’s revenue on adwords.

Regarding the news that Google Waves Googbye to Wave, former CEO of Google.cn, Li Kaifu expressed that in his Sina Weibo “Google has decided to abandon Google Wave and Microsoft did the same thing to their product Kin. Chinese companies should learn the wisdom of giving up. I talked to a superior official of an Internet company. He told me that many Chinese Internet companies don’t want to abandon their products of failure because they don’t want to lose face. But taking the company’s resources as the price for avoiding to lose face is not worth it.”

Chinese netizens have commonly expressed their disappointed on Google’s move. It seems most of Google’s SNS related services have failed. Orkut is not drawing much public attention, neither is Google Wave.
