Naver (naver.com) is a search engine. Naver is the most trafficked Korean search engine. In 2023, it referred to itself as a portal rather than a search engine.

ALTERNATIVES

DESCRIPTION

When I loaded naver.com, the default language was Korean. I used Google Translate to translate the page into English. Regardless of the language change, there remained a lot of Korean on the page: many brands were shown in thumbnails, and the thumbnails, which are potential images, did not change to English. There may also be Korean banner ads near these thumbnails. When I scrolled below the fold, some text, which were links, remained in Korean, perhaps due to it being in a specific widget. The other text on the page was in English. There was a lot of content on the page: some news, the weather, stock market news, and other widget-related content. That is all in addition to the Korean content that was also on the page. I clicked on a news article. Again, I needed to translate the page. It showed the original publication above the single post content. The content was not written by naver.com.
