Youa layout changed

Baidu is updating Youa's product information
database and layout, Sohu reports. The new
page uses tabs for basic description, specs,
pictures, complaints and comments.

Youa also announced the "Ark Project" to set up
and deploy a standard product database containing
product specifications, user reviews, online purchasing,
price quotes, evaluations and information on related
accessories. The database will include standard price
ranges, but model numbers not included in the
database cannot be sold by merchants on the YouA
platform. A spokesperson for Baidu YouA saidd that
the "Ark Project" is an open-source project that will
draw on the information resources of YouA and other
B2C platforms, informative websites and the
Baidu Knows community to build up the database.
