Qihoo's New Search Engine Surges to 10% Share in China, Google Drops to 4th Place [sg.news.yahoo.com]

Chinese traffic stats company CNZZ has calculated the impact of Qihoo's controversial new search engine in the China market, and reckons that it has grabbed the second spot with nearly 10 percent market share. This puts Qihoo's So.com search engine way behind market leader Baidu, but ahead of Sogou (7.83 percent), and fourth-placed Google (4.72 percent).

Currently many search engines do not provide relevant results in some Asian countries, so there will always be demand for a local search engine which understands user requirements better.

There are no international search engines operating in China that have appreciable market share. Google pulled out in 2010. So I'm not sure how your comment applies to the China search engine market.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld Shadow Priest.

Why do you think Qihoo's search has been gaining popularity compared to Baidu in China?
