Google has gained more market share in China after it announced its partnership with Sina, a major Chinese internet portal. It has also recently formed another partnership with popular website Tianya.cn.

"We are closing up the gap with them [Baidu]," said Rebecca Kuei, Google's head of sales and business development for Taiwan and Hong Kong, declining to give specific figures.

Google would certainly like to think so. I had a bunch of visitors from China this week due to the holidays. They still habitually open Baidu when on the PC. Not a Google window in sight. A number of them seemed to be proud not to be using Google.
