Google Challenges Baidu For China Market Share
By: Andy Beal
Its interesting to watch Googles growth in China. When you look at Baidu, you think theyre too well entrenched and will always be #1.
The scenario reminds me of the US search market. You look at Googles dominance and doubt whether another search engine will ever be able to challenge"Googles just too well entrenched.
Well, Googles proving that the #1 spot can be challenged"at least in China. Reuters is reporting Google grew its market share by 4% (to 22.8%) while Baidu grew just 1% (to 58.1%).
Maybe this will give Yahoo, Microsoft, and Ask.com hope that they too can challenge Googles #1 US dominance. Then again, they might be thinking crap, Googles going to dominate the entire world!
