Baike Betters Wiki

Today(5/22) published a review in Chinese.

The "Soul" of Baidu's product division, also called "born for search engine" by Baidu's CEO Robin Li, chief engineer Yu Jun was interviewed by cNetnews. He explained how Baidu Baike is expanding so fast and will be improved very quickly over time.

In the article, several data was revealed. For example:

There are already over 100,000 words or phrases entered into Baike in 20 days since it's available. The speed is far outpaced the Chinese Wiki which is recently becoming less accessible in China.

There are 300, 000 registered users already.

Baidu is not making money on Baike but focused on using Baike to improve users' search experiences.
