Sizing up two Internet giants: Google vs Baidu in China [Infographic] [thenextweb.com]

Baidu is simply killing Google in its core market, search. Yet outside of China little is known of the company, which s very much like Google but with key differences.

  • Were you aware, for example, that Baidu has more than 50 communities and services online, including maps, an encyclopedia, a mobile OS and more?
  • Did you realise that Google briefly held a 2 percent share of the Chinese search giant before it entered China itself?
  • Do you know that Baidu prioritises paid search terms above organic results without any limitation on the number that appear?

    That was an interesting read. Sounds almost like Google still has a chance but they'll need to change how they think in order to be successful.
