Baidu, China's leading search engine, is spreading out into Europe according to IDG News..
The successful challenger to Google - okay just in China - may find this market a little more difficult to conquer. Meanwhile domain squatters like Baidu-europe.eu are already riding in on the Baidu cache.
"Baidu CFO Shawn Wang is expected to outline the group's expansion plans in London later this month, when the company attends its first Nasdaq investor day since listing on the exchange in 2005" the UK Telegraph web site stated.
UPDATE: Baidu.com on Friday told Infoworld that it is not planning to expand into Europe, and that those rumors are groundless.
