The Latest Insights from International Online Marketing
The Vietnamese internet company Coc Coc is pushing hard to take on Google in the country.
Coc Coc is the second most popular web browser in Vietnam, coming after only Google Chrome.
Coc Coc was created by Vietnamese developers especially for a Vietnamese audience. It automatically checks Vietnamese spellings and suggests corrections for misspellings with a 90% accuracy rate.
Its search engine is also doing well in the country, coming behind only Google in terms of popularity. Evidence suggests that Coc Coc’s search engine is growing in popularity, with Google’s share of the search engine market falling.
In an effort to ramp up its fight against Google even more, Coc Coc has also just announced the launch of a new service called Nha Nha to compete against Google Maps.
The company is also in the process of developing a mobile browser, reflecting the fact that over three quarters of internet users in Vietnam use their mobile phones to get online.
