SNS Sites Block Baidu

China Securities Journal, 9/11/08

The blogging site of Chinese Internet portal Sohu (Nasdaq: SOHU), along with social networking service (SNS) websites 51.com, Xiaonei, Hainei and others, have blocked Baidu (Nasdaq: BIDU) from indexing site content. According to a source at one of the SNS websites, all of the relatively active SNS networks are now either blocking search engines from spidering their sites, or planning to block them shortly. The reason for the move is to protect the privacy of users, who typically use their real names to register with SNS sites.
