Interesting. Was all of the loss by Google picked up by Baidu, or did the other engines gain as well?

Sometimes, No.1 is not a good position. If you lose direction before money tempation, you will lose the future, in a word, your No.1 position will be replaced by somebody else. Can baidu keep its position tightly, let's wait and see.

I just read a BBC article from May 11th & which referred to iResearch data suggesting that Google had 21.2% of the Chinesa search market. Assuming that data was 1-3 months old, how does Google go from 21.2 up to 31%, and then down back to 22.8% in the space of 6 months? Doesn't that go against what you're saying?
Please clarify. The reason I question the data is, more often than not the measurement firms have *very* inaccurate data.

Bill. No, Baidu did not take the share Google loses. Other search properties online are catching up.
shorebreak. I did not investigate that further. Maybe they use differently research methods and samples.

Baidu deleted more spamming sites, that's why those spammers are launching an anti-Baidu campaign.

I wonder if this can really be counted as a marketshare loss though, since Google reportedly bought a stake in Baidu [webmasterworld.com] almost one year ago. It may just be 'part of the plan.'
