I noticed that several of my sites are getting a little traffic from Baidu. The search terms are provided and are in English.

I went to the Baidu search home page, where everything is in Chinese. I typed in some English search terms and got results in English. The top results are all English-language sites, and in fact are mostly the same sites that are at the top in Google or Bing searches for the same terms.

It appears that some people somewhere are using Baidu for English-language searches. Has anyone else noticed this, and does anyone know why some people are using Baidu in this way?
