Report: Google aims to top China search

Google's top China executive says the search engine wants to be the top in the Chinese market within five years. If it happens, the big loser will be Baidu.com.

Google is giving itself about five years to unseat Baidu.com's dominance for Internet search in China, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday night.

"We would like to aspire to be a market leader in five years," Kai-Fu Lee, president of the Google's Greater China operation, told the Journal. Google also is examining possible investments in social networking and mobile Internet services, he said.
