Another Microsoft news, and a big one ! Microsoft’s search solution “Bing” has inked a deal with the Chinese government run search giant Baidu.
The deal states that Baidu will incorporate Bing’s english results in it’s search engine, and of course MS will get paid for that, by naturally gaining/sharing nearly 3/4th of the chinese market share. You know why this is huge ? Because it’s China ! We all know how it went for Google, with great backlash from the government regarding strict rules for content. But it still holds 19.6 % mkt. share while Bing is no where to be seen. So, good thing for Microsoft that it could ink a deal with the government . Seems it’s a deal week at Redmond.
