Baidu to Get English Search Results From Bing [penn-olson.com]

Finally it's official. Both Baidu and Microsoft China have confirmed it: Baidu's partnership with Microsoft's Bing for English-language searches on Baidu.com is a done deal - after several months of rumors.

With this partnership Baidu Search will show English search results based on Bing's algorithms. It gives Baidu better quality search results, whilst also raising the profile of Bing in China.

Although confirmed this afternoon, the Baidu-Bing tie-up is not yet in action. Speaking to Penn-Olson, Baidu's Director of International Communications, Kaiser Kuo, said that the service will go live 'in a few weeks or months'.

Google better watch out as Bing seals deals with Yahoo, Facebook, and now Baidu.

Slowly locking up key search spaces, chipping away bit by bit

I would honestly love to see 3 search engines each representing 33% of my search visitors. I grow weary of pleasing one engine or dying trying. It's not a fun game to be playing since the rules are hidden and the guesswork is extreme and ever changing.

I love most of what Google has done but not the effect having to depend on them has created.

I hope they never reach more than 50% and ideally I'd want 3-4 SEs split the 100% but honestly MSFT cannot be ruled out. They have been around the block a few times, they have plenty of cash and they hate to lose. MSFT is surrounding google on several fronts. Time will tell, but Google has a lot of enemies and MS is uniting them....see G Book lawsuits, FTC investigation and especially Android, for which Google barely has any patents and everyone from Oracle to Apple to MSFT is suing the hell out of them.

Bing, IMo is 'good enough' for 95% of people, they just need to get people to try them, but that's not easy. It will be interesting to watch, too bad we'll be pawns in the game :).

Doing business in the web search results industry in China is so unethical at so many levels. I don't know how these people can censor their own product at a political level.

I also wonder about the behavioral and browsing patterns, will these be communicated by Bing to Baidu? Maybe Hotmail account logins are next ;)
