Chinese lifestyle service provider Ganji.com has joined the project named Openmap on Baidu's location-based service platform.
With this move, users will be able to gain various lifestyle service information from Baidu maps and Ganji.com, including recruitment information, real estate data, express delivery, and wedding arrangements.
Baidu LBS recently launched this new Openmap project to developers.
According to comments made to local media by Wei Kejun, senior product director of Ganji.com, with the cooperation, Baidu and Ganji will share user traffic. Baidu map users will be able to access Ganji's lifestyle information, and Ganji users can view the information on a Baidu-generated map. Meanwhile, developers on Baidu's LBS open platform will be authorized to develop applications by using their credentials and information from Ganji.com.
Ganji.com claims to currently have an average daily volume of 2.5 million new posts, with over 25 million individual visitors and over 300 million page views every day.
