Baidu Searches for Respect [fool.com]

China's search market isn't doing so bad after all.

Investors have pummeled shares of Baidu (Nasdaq: BIDU ) in recent weeks on fears that Qihoo 360's (NYSE: QIHU ) summertime launch of a search engine of its own will both eat into Baidu's market dominance and potentially lower online advertising rates. The former may indeed happen over time, but the coast appears to be clear on the latter.

Chinese Web tracker Analysys International is out with fresh research showing that revenue during the third quarter for Chinese search engine operators has climbed 51% over the past year. Even stacked against the second quarter, we're still looking at an impressive 16% sequential pop.
