Baidu to Get English Search Results From Bing [penn-olson.com]
Finally it's official. Both Baidu and Microsoft China have confirmed it: Baidu's partnership with Microsoft's Bing for English-language searches on Baidu.com is a done deal - after several months of rumors.
With this partnership Baidu Search will show English search results based on Bing's algorithms. It gives Baidu better quality search results, whilst also raising the profile of Bing in China.
Although confirmed this afternoon, the Baidu-Bing tie-up is not yet in action. Speaking to Penn-Olson, Baidu's Director of International Communications, Kaiser Kuo, said that the service will go live 'in a few weeks or months'.

Google better watch out as Bing seals deals with Yahoo, Facebook, and now Baidu. Slowly locking up key search spaces, chipping away bit by bit
