Google’s 3rd quarter market share

Google will never succeed in China simply because the Chinese government wont let them. Their service has been sabotaged by the MII since day 1 in China.

I recall when I first came to China, google was rarely accessible. Although officially it was not blocked, but it would work for a few clicks, then die, then work, etc. Individual features such as google cache, google images, etc still do not work properly to this day. On occasion and are redirected to their Chinese competitor Baidu, this even happened as recently as last week. It was also no coincidence that during the first month of Baidu’s operation in China, google was usually inaccessible and unusable, and very often google visitors were redirected to Baidu.

Similar things have been happening to eBay, youtube, myspace and other blog services, etc. Any US website that makes money will be copied by the Chinese and the original site sabotaged. If you need any confirmation, head on over to China for a few months, or browse through the Expat forums where hundreds of expats are complaining about not being able to use popular US websites.
