Google shuts down shopping service for China

Google shuts down shopping service for China:

Google has shut down its online shopping service in China, further slimming down its product portfolio for the country after it pulled the plug on its free music service back in September.

The Internet giant said it closed the site on Wednesday, and it no longer appears as a link on the company’s Google.cn website.

“Shopping in China was not providing businesses with the level of impact we had hoped, so we will be sunsetting it in order to focus on the products that do,” the company said in a statement. Google will instead devote more resources to its advertising services for apps and search, and connecting Chinese suppliers with overseas customers with tools including its Global Market Finder.

The company’s Internet presence in the country has steadily declined since 2010 when it shut down its China-based search engine after clashing with local authorities over online censorship. Since then, access to Google’s sites has been increasingly undermined and slowed by China’s Internet censors, which try and filter out sensitive or anti-government sites. Last month, all of Google sites were briefly blocked in the country.
