+ - Baidu blocks users from other search engines 3

percyalpha writes "Baidu, the search giant in China, which also operates many products such as baidu answers, encyclopedia, forum, docs recently redirects clicks from 360, another search engine newly launched 15 days ago, to baidu index. For example, if a search result from 360 is an item on baidu encyclopedia, Baidu will redirect users to baidu index rather than this item. After some time, 360 used cached page to show all Baidu related results in order to avoid this redirection. The redirection and and counter redirection are still going on.

Now, it seems that Baidu is doing the same thing to Google, at least partially. This is a search for baidu answers. When you click any results, you will be redirected to baidu index with a banner saying"click to proceed to the specific results you are looking for". However, this redirection for Google only applies to Baidu answers and to this specific Google IP(203.208.46.206)"
