With its localization plans moving ahead, Google (GOOG) China has been finding ways to make up for its paucity of Chinese users.
According to local media reports, Google China is testing a new home page which will mark the biggest change of its outlook in China since its entry into the country. A spokesperson from Google China has confirmed by saying that Google China is indeed testing a new home page, but there is not a fixed schedule on when the new page will be launched.
The new home page is said to display seven types of Google China's products, including Blog Search, Video Search, Document, Toolbar, Pinyin Input Method, Hot Rank and Website Navigation. These services are not apparently visible to most users currently, so the redesign of the home page may integrate many more features and add clutter to the minimalist page.
The internet search engine already announced its new China-friendly domain name of G.cn last week.
