While this article was well researched and articulated, the author's bias is obvious and therefore he left out some important contrary points. While NQ must defend there numbers after this report since it is the only way to clear the air...one must not forget that QIHU has been accused of fraud, specifically based off their traffic numbers, multiple times. More importantly, accused by reputable firms and not just another SA article. For those interested in the QIHU accusations google "anonymous analytics QIHU" and read their report, which is one among many on this subject.
But obviously, the only way for us to be sure that the SA article published today is accurate or not is for the company to release their numbers with confidence.
