Google Jumped ahead of Baidu

According to some limited channel source(warning, may not be representative), A salesperson from a channel reseller revealed some interesting data on search advertising sales in China.

1. Google is doing very well at about 40%

2. Baidu is doing OK, with a strong second place of 30%

3. Yahoo is losing market share due to the confusion of brands of 3721 and Alibaba

4. Sina and Sohu came in a combined 10%

It is indicated that Sina's service was very ineffective. Though Sohu's advertisement about their service can be seen in many places and their heavy spending on "Sogou", the search service is not making any impact yet.

Google's edge will be further strenghened with the launch of its new website google.cn. Although Baidu still has some technological advantages in Chinese language processing, it lags behind google in terms of the services and features provided.
