Google vs. Baidu – the search war continues

Just read this interesting bit of news that Google China will be offering free music downloads in a bid to boost their market share.  Sure, one reason Baidu is popular is because of their free music downloading capabilities, but the general perception in China is that Baidu provides better search results than Google – and it does seem that Baidu breaks down Chinese queries more naturally than Google at the moment.  Plus, Baidu have the lead advantages of being a homegrown service and people sticking to what they know.  The search wars will continue for a while still.

PS – not related to the story, but I hate how the links in Media’s news bulletin emails NEVER work. Please guys, sort yourselves out.
