Baidu Seo Must Haves

Discussion in 'All Other Search Engines' started by magdafst, Feb 14, 2013.

    I am approaching a large international SEO project and planning to tackle China. I did some research into Baidu search engine. Some of my main findings are:
    - links built to your website must be from China
    - keyword meta tag is still used and important
    - Baidu is expanding to Africa and Middle East with Orange deal
    - higher spend on PPC guarantees higher rankings
    - submit your site to Baidu http://www.baidu.com/search/url_submit.html
    - Baidu censors it's content - be careful what you put on your website
    - Translate your website to Chinese (do not use Google Translate)
    - large websites with a lot of pages rank better, there is no duplicate content penalty
    - cn. TLD is a must

    I would appreciate any comments on best practice and if you came a cross any major problems or differences.

    Biadu gives More importance to onsite optimization like META TAGS.Meta keywords for them have still lot of value so guys If your target is Baidu go ahead and start doing keyword stuffing till next update.LOL.Just kidding.Do not apply.
    Consider spending some extra time on onsite SEO and Baidu algorithm is not as refined so what you need to do is to concentrate more and more on quantity of links than the quality of these links.In baidu the number have more value until they have there Manual coming up on scene like MR GOOGLE and penalizing many sites.

    Thats great. But I wonder what markets are suitable for ranking in China?

    Did you mean the servers (IP) have to be in China?

    This is the first and foremost question before even finalizing your site.You have to make a plan where you are going.Surely your marketing strategy will only be successful when it is in line with strategic fit of organization.

    A supplement. You should to take part in Chinese online communities to know what Chinese SEOers are talking about. Chinaz and tui18 are two of the biggest communities.

    I think basic things are applied to all the search engines, this is the way all the search engines work, means they send their crawlers to crawl content, the use meta data etc...

    Most of the things you are doing for optimizing your web page Google, they would also be applied to Baidu or other search engines.

    I have seen that Baidu does a lot of indexing like google. I have always seen it to be indexing my site. But never have I got a visitor flow from China. For backlinks try Alibaba.
