Editor's Note: CNZZ's search query share statistics include both PC and mobile search queries. However, while CNZZ tracks over 5 mln PC and mobile websites in compiling their search statistics, due to some limitations on CNZZ's current technology and tools, their statistics track only search queries made via PC or mobile browsers (i.e. search traffic from mobile apps and other sources are not tracked).
