Baidu's Japanese Search Is Taking Off

Only four months ago, 60% of Baidu's Japanese search engine users were actually from China and about one third of them were from Japan.

Today, that ratio has seen a dramatic turnaround. As reported, there are over 70% of the Baidu Japanese search engine users coming from Japan with less than 20% coming from China. However, traffic to the site is still only ranked about 517 in Japan.

The most welcome service is Baidu's image search with about 80% visitors which is far greater than the percentages from either Yahoo Japan, or Google Japan.

Yahoo Japan is still the far dominant search engine in Japan with 65% market share and Google Japan has roughly 25% market share.
