I was amusing myself last night by looking back at old blog posts from my days in China, and I stumbled across a fun site that I discovered back in 2007. It’s called BaiGoogledu, and if you dare to use it for search, it will give you a side-by-side Google (NASDAQ:GOOG - News) and Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU - News) comparison of search results.
From there you can use the direction arrows in the middle of the page to close out whichever search results are not up to par.
This site is likely not much more than a passing fancy for whoever made it, but I’m still pretty surprised and impressed that it is still online. A rare gem in a distant corner of the interwebs for sure!
If only Baidu and Google could have gotten along so well in real life. Fact is though that the last decade has seen Baidu run rampage over the rest of the search market in China. Check out the charts below to China's search engine market share in 2004 as compared to 2012. Oh how times have changed!
