Google has launched the beta version of its local search service for mainland China. It includes businesses in over 100 cities and provides maps for 77 of them.

The mapping is provided by Beijing’s Mapabc.com. Google’s Chinese version of its local search is said to operate basically the same as the company’s other versions.

There hasn’t been any mention of the local search service for China from Google in any press releases, but the site appears to be up and running. I would have thought that Google would have made more of an effort to promote this, with Baidu dominating the search market in China.

    I think that Google is trying to enter the Chinese market slowly as it is a sensitive market, especially with their regulations and censorship.
