were about 100million at the begining of 2005That means baidu has over 1000 times growth potential if it could dominate the china market!
you might do well with drill down homework on china. the ONLY dominant player in China in any sector is the GOVERNMENT.
I believe BIDU works well with the government there..How BIDU get started? It was having less user than google at first, then google was blocked for a while, and that is how baidu gained market share.
