Sina Tech, 9/13/11
Google China today launched its group buy directory, Shihui (google.cn/shihui), which automatically aggregates group buy deals from third-party sites.
Google Shihui is an automatic search-based tool, according to Google China, and therefore Google assumes no responsibility for group buy content featured on the site. The selection and positioning of all information on Google Shihui is performed automatically by a computer algorithm, according to the company.
Google Shihui was developed by a team based in Beijing and is being positioned internally as belonging to the company's shopping search division. No link to Google Shihui can currently be found on the Google.cn homepage.
