I have the personal understanding, the ability to restructure my site so it is appealing to the Chinese audience and enough expat Chinese friends to test the hell out of my startup website.
What I would like to know is, is it worth trying to reach out to China? Please reply if you have had experience launching a site with the Chinese market as your customer or if you have a section of your site that is dedicated to the Chinese market (not just a translated site, but something dedicated to that area).
The biggest problem I can foresee is the site being blocked once it gets a reasonable amount of traffic.
Should I just get someone to register another domain in China and launch the same product under a different domain? I have heard this is not an easy path to go down.
