    Baidu Qunar= China Online Travel

    Excellent find, Citi.

    Everyone should check this out because it gives statistical evidence that The Bidu Trick, where Bidu can bring up its own wholly owned websites first for any applicable search, really does work. So, a guy searches for "travel" or "vacations" or "Trip to Maui" or something and, bang, up comes a list of sites, with Qunar at the top.

    Best part of all about The Bidu Trick, is that Bidu can apply it to any site it decides it wants to own in ANY ONLINE INDUSTRY.

    The potential for Bidu empire building really boggles my mind. One day more profitable than Google? (Well, alright, maybe that's getting a bit carried away -- Google's $10 billion profits this yr still dwarf our $1.2 billion, but still....)
