    What i can tell is the % is very very low.
    Baidu is more lucrative and easier than big G. My friend bought 7 xrumer licences and bomb baidu, lol.
    You outsouce content at elance and work on Chinese market--fool baidu.

      Very few or close to none.

      The real question for me is/was: How many Baidu users will respond favorably to English content (i.e. read it instead of bouncing)... The answer, even fewer than I thought.

      Also I wouldn't call Baidu more lucrative than Google. It's very SEO unfriendly, even when closely working with someone who can speak the language.
      * KW research is a nightmare
      * Link spam is almost "allowed" - which is much worse than it may sound, because everyone else is doing it (and were doing it for a long time)
      * Baidubot ignores robots.txt and its scanning rate can go out of control and really hurt your bandwidth


      Not many profit opportunities either due to: low bids, rarely geo-targeted, scarce affiliate options.

      In the end it wasn't for me.
      Still, some may think differently.
