BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s top Internet search company Baidu aims to raise its share of China’s PC and mobile search market to 79 percent next year, a senior executive said on Tuesday, helped by a Google retreat.
Baidu General Manager for Corporate Development Tang Hesong made the comments to reporters during a news conference on Tuesday.
The Chinese search engine captured more than 64 percent of China’s search market in the first quarter, up from 58.4 percent in the fourth quarter, according to research firm Analysys International.
