Google's Market Share Declining more than 10% in China

From ChinaTechNews:

"The 2006 CIC China Search Engine Market Survey Report has just been released and it shows that Baidu's market share has increased dramatically in the year by taking up 60% of the market share in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Google's market share has declined by more than 10% compared with the same period of last year."

From Red Herring:

"Google is not the only search provider likely to be ruffled by the results: the search engines of portals Sina and Sohu both saw their market share shrink to 3.5 and 3.4 percent, respectively, while, which has been pushing its integrated search desktop Internet gateway aggressively in the last year, hardly even registered in the survey results.

Besides Baidu, only Yahoo China made any measurable gains, with a 1.7 percent increase to 5.4 percent market share."

From China Tech Stories:


Among school users, 77.1% use Baidu, 13.4% use Google
Among office users, 54.3% use Baidu, 29% use Google
Among enterprise users, 64.7% use Baidu, 31.0% use Google
