Google suffers further Chinese setback

Loses largest portal

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Chinese super-portal Sina has dropped Google's search box from its website and is using its own search service instead.

Google continues to lose market share in China to Baidu. This fall seems to happening faster since the ad gaint moved its servers to Hong Kong after a row with the Chinese government.

More recently Google accused the Chinese government of interfering with its webmail service in a way to make it look like technical problems. China denied the claim.

Sina claims to be the web's most popular Chinese language portal, with about 280 million registered users and almost a billion page views per day.

The portal and news site said its contract with Google had come to an end.

A Google spokesbod declined to comment on specifics but told the Wall Street Journal: "While we can't comment on specific partnerships, we announced last year that over time we would not be syndicating censored search to partners in China after fulfilling our contractual commitments." ®
