For many, Google Inc seems to have had a hard time in China, as its business has been consistently disrupted by its relationship with the Chinese government.
But the US search engine has established itself since officially opening for business in China in 2005, with a market share that increased about 10 percent during the past four years.
Then Kai-Fu Lee, the superstar chief of Google China operations since 2005, quit the company last month to launch a $115 million fund to finance Chinese technology startups.
Now the US search engine is looking for new ways to tap the world's largest population.
Most agree that the major challenge for Google has been its relationship with the Chinese government, which has been wary of the growth of the Internet search engine.
Since Google launched its Chinese-language search engine in 2003, one year earlier than domestic rival Baidu.com, its service has been intermittently stopped or delayed by authorities.
