Connection of China and USA Internet

In china business, china seo by Michael Michelini4 Comments

Its become my passion, connecting the USA and Chinese ecommerce. Being in China over a couple years now….and fighting both sides – US ebay accounts requiring a USA IP address, Chinese government banning certain foreign websites, VPNs, international shipping without tracking, chargebacks, duties, trademarks…..

I am so attracted to it because SO MANY PEOPLE ARE SCARED OF IT. That means its my opportunity, my differentiating factor. That is how many companies in the past have grown, they have jumped in the middle of industries and sectors that large corporations are afraid to touch!

Reading the news these days – you will continue to see the USA search market decline, and I am always hearing about Chinese factories and trading companies selling DIRECTLY (B2C)…

What does this mean? It means to further convergence of these 2 internet worlds. And it seems almost that the 2 governments don’t support it fully….with the Chinese government blocking certain foreign websites (facebook, twitter, etc), and then with USA companies (not government, that we can confirm) making it difficult for chinese companies to enter the USA market directly (ID card, banking, trust its not fraudulent) – I hope I can be a connector of these 2 worlds.

Going to be quite the challenge, but I enjoy that. Here is a recent article about the declining total search volume in USA. This means basically that there are less people searching online in the USA. So a company trying to get customers, is going to have a smaller pool of customers……with what I would assume increasingly fierce competitors both in domestic USA market, as well as overseas markets trying to sell directly to end consumers…

Overall U.S. Search Growth Down Again


The latest numbers from comScore show that overall search volume growth in the U.S. fell to 7.6 percent in March, a 2.8-percent difference from the previous month and a considerably steeper drop from March, 2009:

• March, 2009: 33.1%
• June, 2009: 21.8%
• September, 2009: 17.3%
• December, 2009: 16.5%
• January, 2010: 12.4%
• February, 2010: 10.4%
• March, 2010: 7.6%

Also, during my presentation in Xiamen Internet Trade Show, in a full conference of Chinese companies attending to learn more about how to sell directly online, and to Western (USA , European) companies…..so many people are there, studying, taking notes, asking questions, and learning more advanced skills and services…..

    Am I right?hehe ,I learn to use english to express something i want to said.

  • Hi Christal,
    yes, SEO is a way to do marketing, and ecommerce is a way to capture that marketing skill.

    Also, ecommerce you directly and immediately collect money from the customer, so you can quickly measure and see result from SEO

    they are usually very closely related, and should understand both for maximum effect

    keep learning, studying, and don’t give up
