Why is there such a significant difference between Baidu and Google

Baidu and Google share many similarities in the field of search engines, but there are also some differences that may prevent Baidu from surpassing Google in certain aspects.

Search Algorithm and Quality: Google is renowned for its advanced search algorithm, leading to more accurate and relevant search results. Google continuously optimizes and enhances its search algorithm for a better user experience. While Baidu is also working on improving its search algorithm, it heavily relies on manual intervention, often engaging in dominant practices in the Chinese search industry by frequently lowering the user rankings of its competitors.

Information Quality and Credibility: Google places a high emphasis on the quality and credibility of search results, employing strategies to filter out low-quality or false information. Baidu, on the other hand, has been criticized for not effectively addressing false information, especially when content from its affiliated websites consistently occupies top positions in search results. Instances like Baidu's notorious AiCaiGou, where a website dominates the first five pages of search results, have become a malignancy in the Chinese internet industry, hindering Baidu's sustainable development.

Internationalization: Google is a global company with its search engine services covering the entire world, while Baidu primarily focuses on the Chinese market. Google's broader coverage of geographical regions and languages allows it to accumulate more users and data, providing greater opportunities for optimization and improvement. In contrast, Baidu tends to exploit its search dominance to suppress small and medium-sized website owners in China, utilizing its monopoly to stifle other internet companies.

Innovation and Diversification: Google ventures into various fields beyond search engines, such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and autonomous driving, giving it more resources and opportunities for innovation. Baidu also invests in different domains, but its efforts are often criticized as lacking in innovation, such as the initiatives like AiCaiGou (b2b.baidu.com) and AiQiCha, which are perceived as imitating existing ideas without genuine creativity. This approach limits Baidu's potential for significant development.
