China's wealthiest entrepreneurs prefer to use Chinese Internet search engine Baidu.com instead of rival Google, according to the results of a recent survey conducted by Hurun Report, a Chinese magazine.
Tom, and the other survey was on 1200. Not a big difference. Either way it's a sample from which (if conducted properly) one can draw statistical conclusions (which are often times better then p...ing on the wind types of guesses, but essentially are the same)
A survey of 600 people prefer Baidu.But the thing to be noticed is what type of people have been interviewed.I mean whether they are normal users or they are in some way addicted to search engines,coz local people will prefer Baidu ahead of Google but people looking for specific details may look for Google.Thats why the category is important.
Google is great, when I search English materials, i definitely use google. but if chinese stuff, i prefer baidu.com.or yahoo.cn Hopefully google will do better in China. The result of the survey is accurate indeed. all the online users I know well around 20 people prefer baidu.com they are university graduate and at beginning of working life.
