Baidu and Microsoft join together to fight Google Microsoft has teamed up with Chinese behemoth Baidu to offer English search services in China.
The move comes 18 months after Google pulled its search engine out of mainland China, following a number of attempted attacks on Google Gmail servers that the company says originated from China.

With the new deal, Microsoft's Bing will now appear on Baidu web pages, offering English results.

Baidu says there are now 10 million English searches on its search engine every day, and the Bing deal should help the company satisfy those users. The company has an 83 percent share for the Chinese search market, even higher than Google's 72 percent in the United States.

Microsoft says it will follow all censorship laws as mandated in the nation.

China has 470 million active Internet users.
