Baidu mimics MySpace and Wikipedia
The company has attempted to increase traffic with new community-driven services that mimic popular international sites such as MySpace and Wikipedia, vnunet.net reported.
"Our community-based search products, including Baidu Post Bar, Baidu Knows and Baidupedia, have become increasingly popular because they make users stay connected while searching online,"explained Li to the paper.
"In July, we launched Baidu Space, which allows users to create personalised homepages on Baidu and integrate their use of other Baidu search products in one place.
"We will continue to develop products tailored to user needs to ensure that Baidu remains the search engine of choice in China."
Baidu's share of the Chinese search market was estimated at 43.9 percent in the first quarter, putting the company far ahead of its competitors.
