wow - delivering traffic (a little anyway)

having watched the Baiduspider crawl my site for some time now I was beginning to wonder whether it was for real or just another wannabe candidate for robots.txt. Anyway I see I am getting the odd hit from there (on English language search terms). Poking around on the site I see the site: command works (no keyword after domain name necessary) and many pages of my site are there.

What appears to be the cache function - next to the green URL text (c&p attempt: 百度快照 ) doesn't seem to be as good as google, and the English parsing isn't up to much either (given widget's, instances of "s" are searched for).

Anyone know what the standing of Baidu (in China?) is? Who uses it, reputation etc? All I've heard sofar is that google has bought a share in it.

Baidu.com was the most popular search engines in China. A year ago, it was the search engine technology providers for major portal sites in China. Same as Google offer search engine technology to Yahoo before.

For the time being, major portals in China move to different SE providers. Baidu has its own popular site. Baidu.com.

Baidu means 100 degrees/dimensions in Chinese. I do not know who is using it. See alexa for their traffic.

If the Baidu market research [baidu.com] is vaild then they have about 48% of the search market in China. Google only has about 29%. There's a reason why Google has invested in them.
