We are currently working on a new Web project for a client that wants to sell their products in Europe, Africa and China (+ Taiwan + Hong Kong + some other Mandarin speaking populations in Asia). For now we are completing the website development and we will be launching the SEO work for the English and French versions of this Website (Audience in Europe & Africa). However for the Chinese part we are still making some research about it. We want to work on SEO for the Mandarin and English versions to target Chinese populations.
So I will be really glad if anyone here on SPF worked on SEO / SEM / Social Networking projects for some sites that are mainly targeting asian markets especially China can give me their input and some key points about their experience! And help me know what SE like Sina and Baidu want? Is it worth it to cnsider Google, Yahoo, ... too? What about Social networks?
Anything regarding SEO in Asia & China would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your help!
