Semantic Search – Better than Google?
An ever hot topic amongst the 2 search giants.Google’s knowledge graph vs Box Computing (Baidu). What is better and for whom? And what does this really mean for your Baidu SEO?
Semantic Search is basically the information above the SERP (Search Engine results) you would get out of a search query. That could be a snippet of a link to a video on Iqiyi, or if you would search for a specific Chinese holiday – you might get a calendar that would match the most relevant info as to when it occurs.
Chinese (.cn) domains + Solid Hosting = NOT a Must Baidu SEO
When it comes to selecting a domain for your Chinese website, a .cn domain is for most Baidu SEO specialists a must. We believe it is as important as getting the ICP or having a solid hosting for your website.
IF we compare it with selecting your domain on Google – you could easily rank high in the SERP with a .com, .net, .org or .edu. It really depends on several factors – so if you do not come over your .cn domain for your brand or search query you are targeted – it is not an issue. Although if you want to stay ahead of intentional competition – we would recommend investing in a .cn domain just because of standing out from your competition.
Is it easy to buy a .cn domain?
No. And that is the major reason we do not recommend starting of with getting your Chinese domain. It is easier said than done – and requires a real challenge in terms of admin.
