Baidu search engine has a market share of over 80% in China. Can you afford NOT to take advantage of it?
Founded in 2000 by search scientist and entrepreneur Robin Li, Baidu is China's largest search engine with over 500 million search queries per day. While Baidu can be initially described as a Google clone, it has since changed and evolved into a product distinctively its own. Now, it and its by-product have capabilities that exceeds Google itself such as Chinese language adaptation and recognition. It also has its own suite of products similar to wikipedia, Quora and even a missing person search website! Apart from that, Baidu has its own algorithms for Search Engine Reports Page placement quite different to Google. Although many of its search algorithms are still a step or two behind Google such as still utilising meta keywords as a search engine optimization metric (a dated Google rankings metric) Its emphasis on Chinese character search and recognition is much more pronounced.
Even with a good understanding of search engine marketing, Baidu PPC (Pay Per Click or paid search advertising) can be a difficult campaign to undertake, coupled that with language, cultural and social barriers and you can end up wasting money very quickly.
