A new report from iResearch finds that Baidu and Google combined have a 90 percent market share of the Chinese search space. Baidu gets a 56.6 percent slice, followed by Google at 32.8 percent. Others are at less than five percent. China View has more details here: Baidu ranks No. 1 in China's on-line searching market. I don't see the report at iResearch yet, but you can watch for it here. China View doesn't say what time period the figures are for, but China Knowledge says they're for 2005. If so, that makes them different and slightly higher than 2005 year end figures iResearch recently released here.
