China Youth: Baidu Now the World’s Second Largest Search Engine

The US market research organization Comscore reported that Baidu holds 6.9% of the world search market, surpassing Yahoo, which used to be the second largest search engine. The Chinese authoritative Internet research agency data also shows that Baidu has 75.7% of the Chinese market share. Analysts suggested that China now has a netizen population of 338 million, which helped on this search engine’s ranking (ed: In contrast to search engines that operate in China, such as Google and Yahoo, where the CCP has imposed a forced censorship, Baidu voluntarily carries out an even stricter self-censorship).
