Qi Xiangdong, President of Chinese internet services and security software provider Qihoo 360 (NYSE: QIHU), has announced that query share for the company's So.com search engine is approaching 20%, and is on track to meet its previous forecast of capturing 30% of China's search market by the end of 2014.
Slow but steady wins the race I guess. ;) Back in 2012 [webmasterworld.com] we saw So.com with only a 10% share.
I don't have any indication that 18.104.22.168/19 has anything to do with soso (officially) but I have the range blocked. According to DNS the whole 22.214.171.124/15 shows as dynamic and it may well be, with "users" pretending to be bots. :(
