我国一家人气颇高的网站及互联网浏览器公司用自己的技术替代了谷歌(Google Inc. )的搜索服务,由此可见,谷歌在我国面临的挑战正在不断增大。

  Google Inc. faces intensifying challenges in China after a popular website and Internet browser company there replaced the search service for its own technology.

  我国一家人气颇高的网站及互联网浏览器公司用自己的技术替代了谷歌(Google Inc. )的搜索服务,由此可见,谷歌在我国面临的挑战正在不断增大。

  Qihoo 360 Technology Co. launched its own search engine last week and is in the process of making it the default on its website and browser, said Chief Financial Officer Alex Xu in a Tuesday interview. The Beijing company, whose Internet browser reached about 270 million monthly users in the first quarter, previously offered Google''s search technology as the first choice.

  奇虎360科技有限公司(Qihoo 360 Technology Co. )首席财务长徐祚立周二在接受采访时说,奇虎360上周推出了自己的搜索引擎,目前正在将其设置为奇虎360网站和浏览器的默认搜索引擎。这家北京公司此前曾将谷歌搜索引擎作为用户的首选。今年一季度,该公司互联网浏览器的月使用人数达到约2.7亿。

  Qihoo''s move underscores the uphill battle Google faces to penetrate a market dominated by domestic rivals, including Baidu Inc., which holds 78.6% of the search market in the second quarter, according to industry research firm Analysys International.

  奇虎360的举动凸显出谷歌在打入一个由百度(Baidu Inc. )等国内竞争对手主导的市场时面临的艰巨挑战。据行业研究公司易观国际(Analysys International)的数据,今年二季度百度在我国搜索市场所占份额为78.6%。

  Google''s search market share in China has dwindled since it announced in 2010 that it would no longer adhere to China''s censorship policies and moved its Web search and other services to Hong Kong, where it doesn''t have to comply with regulations in mainland China. Google held 15.7% of China''s search market in the second quarter, according to Analysys.

  2010年,谷歌宣布不愿再遵守我国内地的审查政策,并把网络搜索和其他服务移到了香港。在香港,谷歌不必遵守我国内地的规定。此后,该公司在我国搜索市场的份额一直在下滑。据易观国际的数据显示,二季度谷歌在我国搜索市场所占份额为15.7%。

  It isn''t clear exactly how Qihoo''s decision will affect Google''s market share.

  奇虎360的决定将对谷歌的市场份额产生怎样的影响目前尚不清楚。

  Although Mr. Xu said users will still have the option to select Google''s search service, the switch makes it likely that Qihoo''s users will use its own services. In the first quarter the company estimated it had 77 million unique visitors per day to its website.

  尽管徐祚立说用户仍可选择谷歌的搜索服务,但奇虎360改变默认搜索引擎的做法可能会使用户转而使用奇虎360的搜索引擎。该公司估计,今年一季度其网站日独立访问流量为7,700万。

  Qihoo''s Mr. Xu said that Google''s customer service had declined since it made its decision to leave China in 2010, and that Qihoo''s aim was to provide a quality search engine for its users.

  徐祚立说,自2010年谷歌决定退出我国内地以来,其客户服务一直在走下坡路,奇虎360的目标则是为用户拉供高质量的搜索引擎。

  ''We believe there is room in China''s search market for a search engine that can provide more relevant results at a fast speed,'' he said.

  他说,我们认为,对于一个能够快速拉供更多有用结果的搜索引擎来说,我国搜索市场还是有它的空间的。

  A Google spokesman in China declined to comment.

  谷歌驻我国发言人不予置评。

  Not well known outside of China, Qihoo makes revenue by using its popular security software to drive users to its aggregator website, where it sells advertisements and links.

  奇虎360在我国以外并不是很有名。该公司利用自己颇受欢迎的安全软件吸引用户访问其聚合网站(它在网站上*广告和链接),进而创收。

  While Baidu dominates the market, analysts say there is room for small players like Qihoo and local search provider Sohu.com Inc. to win ad revenue, which is more resilient in search than other parts of the Internet, like social networking.

  尽管百度在我国的搜索市场上占据主导地位,分析人士却说,奇虎360等小公司以及我国本土搜索服务拉供商搜狐(Sohu.com Inc. )有赢得广告收入的空间。搜索服务中的广告比社交网站等互联网其他领域的广告弹性更大。

  Google continues to operate offices in mainland China, but its search and other services like Gmail are frequently disrupted by the government''s web filtering system.

  谷歌在我国内地仍有业务,但其搜索和Gmail电子邮件等其他服务常常因政府网络过滤系统的干扰而中断。

  Despite its setbacks in China, Google still has a considerable presence there. Its Android mobile operating system was on about 83% of devices sold in the second quarter, according to Analysys, and it continues to run an Internet and mobile advertising business in the country.

  尽管在我国内地受阻,谷歌在那里仍有相当大的影响。据易观国际的数据显示,二季度我国*的移动设备中有约83%搭载的是谷歌安卓(Android)移动操作系统。此外,谷歌在我国内地仍有互联网和移动广告业务。

  The shift is the latest in a long-term trend of Chinese Internet companies supplanting Western rivals in the China market.

  这种转变是我国互联网公司在我国市场上取代西方对手这一长期趋势中出现的进展。

  China is already partially isolated from the rest of the Internet by government censorship efforts, regulatory requirements that include locating servers and other key equipment locally, language and other factors.

  由于政府审查、将服务器和其他主要设备设在本地等监管要求、语言以及其他因素,我国已经部分地与世界其他地方的互联网隔绝。

  EBay Inc. largely withdrew from China in 2006, leaving Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. in a dominant position there, while local companies fill the roles of Facebook Inc., Twitter Inc. and Google''s YouTube, which are all blocked in China.

  2006年,EBay Inc.基本上退出了我国内地市场,使得我国电子商务巨头阿里巴巴(Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.)在这一市场占据了主导地位。与此同时,我国本土公司也承担了在我国内地遭屏蔽的Facebook Inc.、推特(Twitter Inc.)和谷歌旗下的YouTube等服务的所应扮演的角色。
