Alibaba cancels advertising at Baidu [thechinaperspective.com]
Ads will stop running on November 10. Baidu is the largest search engine in the Chinese language. An Alibaba official said the company decided to pull the ads because it has been unsatisfied with the revenue they have generated and the quality of the customer flow. The official said the company would possibly team up with Google (GOOG.NASDAQ) or Yahoo (YHOO.NASDAQ) in the future. In September, Alibaba blocked Baidu from crawling its websites after Baidu announced the launch of its own e-commerce platform to rival Alibaba Groupís auction site Taobao.com.
