Heart-breaking news of tainted milks and tainted Lehman Bothers’ minibonds has already caused enough damage in 2008. Our health is in jeopardy and our life-long savings got evaporated in a few seconds. We start to question if there’s any check-and-balance system that can protect us from being exploited by unscrupulous businessmen.

Early September, we put up a post – “Alibaba axes black sheeps” to warn our users of being cautious in dealing with a batch of unreliable suppliers. In the last few days, Alibaba takes another step to extend its surveillance service by launching a “Blacklist Companies” campaign online.  

 

In response to intellectual property infringement and fraudulent conduct complaints submitted in accordance with our take-down policy, we take down thousands of product listings each year. In addition, we blacklist suppliers that continue to be subject to substantiated take-down notices and fail to live up to the expectations of our member community. We remove all listings of blacklisted companies, terminate their memberships and ban them from our marketplace permanently.

We believe it’s a good move and it ties to what we have discussed in “Alibaba flowing with tide” post.

    Of the six trends outlined in the last edition of B2B Online Media Report, Alibaba may reckon a couple of them are applicable to her future development as part of strategy to enhance its premium position in B2B marketplace.

    The report, compiled by Business Strategies Group Ltd,  held Alibaba and Global Sources as the most sophisticated on-line sourcing platforms. There are two new entrants to the top 10, Indiamart and TradeIndia.

    Emphasis on deeper supplier data and verification services is something that Alibaba may consider exploring further. Alibaba has a safe trading center and forum to discuss the issues about fraudulent, scams and scrupulous suppliers. Yet the content block seems to be played down, there’s still room for improvment in presentating the message . Aliuser has introduced a few authenication and verification inspection services in Alibaba, which can be highlight in the site, we believed. 

    Emergence of vertical sourcing websites may provide Alibaba an opportunity to spread her wings in major vertical, industry-specific sourcing websites. The logic comes from the thought that the more valuable content Alibaba has, the more powerful it will be from Search Engine Optimization perspective. It also offers industry research, supplier credit reports and export guides and verification services to her users. Those are the things are users are looking for in doing business.
