Google officially Launches services in China

   BEIJING, Jan. 25 -- Online search engine leader Google Inc. announced on Wednesday that it is officially launching its services in China.

    The Mountain View, Calif.-based company planned to roll out a new version of its search engine bearing China's Web suffix ".cn," on Wednesday. A Chinese-language version of Google's search engine has previously been available through the company's dot-com address in the United States.
By creating a unique address for China, Google hopes to make its search engine more widely available and easier to use in the world's most populous country.

    China already has more than 100 million Web surfers and the audience is expected to swell substantially an alluring prospect for Google as it tries to boost its already rapidly rising profits.

    Baidu.com Inc., a Beijing-based company in which Google owns a 2.6 percent stake, currently runs China's most popular search engine. But a recent Keynote Systems survey of China's Internet preferences concluded that Baidu remains vulnerable to challenges from Google and Yahoo Inc.

    "We firmly believe, with our culture of innovation, Google can make meaningful and positive contributions to the already impressive pace of development in China," said Andrew McLaughlin, Google's senior policy counsel.

    Initially, Google's Chinese service will be limited to searching Web pages and images. The company also will provide local search results and a special edition of its news service.
