Koubei.com, the popular Hangzhou based site, is a life community that focuses on classifieds related to:
- Real estate property renting search
- Local restaurants search
- Entertainment venues search
Koubei.com’s merge with Yahoo China will improve Yahoo’s localization in China as a search engine, and to add to Yahoo’s strength in building better services on life search.
The Alibaba group already owns:
- Taobao.com – the largest B2C site in China
- Alibaba.com – the largest B2B site in China
One of the options is that Alibaba Group may still integrate China’s eCommerce into Koubei.com community.
