I've never seen much traffic from Goso.cn on my Chinese sites. How about you?

I see the gosospider bot pulling a few pages every day, but no visitors.

There's also a Sosospider too; is it related?

No, that's apparently Tencent's search engine SoSo [soso.com]. Bot info is here [help.soso.com], but it's in Chinese.

Now this is an interesting development. Perhaps the Chinese market is tiring of the state of Baidu's commercial SERPs?

People Daily's Search Will Not Offer Paid Ranking [marbridgeconsulting.com]

Liu Jun, chief scientist for People's Daily-operated Chinese search engine Jike.com (formerly: Goso.cn), has announced that future plans for the search engine do not include introduction of paid ranking of results. Liu said that as Jike currently has no pressure to become profitable, all search results on the site will continue to be arranged naturally based on machine calculation, and that Jike has no plans to sell rankings in its search results.
