Shanghai surprise!

This week I am in Shanghai checking up on the new office to see how that is going (great!) and to get more of a feel for SEO and Search Conversion in china.

What I am really excited about is the new developments that will come out in the next year. I think we are going to see some interesting innovations as Google attempts to take on Baidu in its own backyard. I am sure this going to lead to exciting new products and features from both of these big players. New google site www.g.cn has 10 related searches for example.

Competition for Google should be good for the user as this may force the pace of evolution. And while there is no suggestion that Google has been slow to adapt to date, it may be that Baidu may squeeze something interesting out of Google.

Back to Shanghai, my first impression is one of a great mix of old and new. Some of the new architecture is amazing – photos soon – and many of the old style buildings are very well preserved.

Everyone is very nice and if I could just kick this jetlag into touch I am sure it will look even better than seen through my blurry eyes so far.

More info from Shanghai to come soon!
