Wang Xiaochuan explained that Baidu is now the biggest challenge is whether the success of the wireless strategy. If successful, it will return to the market value of billions of companies; if failed, Baidu will become YAHOO. So if it is able to affect the success of the acquisition of Baidu’s wireless strategy, the price is 2% of the current market value of Baidu or 10%, just a philosophical issue, rather than a technical issue.
Look at the value of 91
back to the Baidu wireless strategy point of view, first of all to answer: what is the wireless search? "Wang Xiaochuan believes that wireless search is a pit, mean two layer:
1 wireless search product form is not the same as in the form of web search, Baidu map search is force? Voice assistant (voice Siri like Baidu Sogou quiz, are doing)? Or Taobao, public comment this vertical service? Or WeChat, Sogou numbers through the universal platform of products that will be in the future? The answer in the show but if you only hold All flowers bloom together., web search and map search must be dropped to the bottom;
2 search is later than in the ecological system of other mature business model, if other services are not mature do not make money, search is not mature and profitable. Baidu listed in 2005, the first batch of months before the listing of the Internet Co than in the past five years, not just to see a breakthrough in product technology, but to see the inevitable trend of industrial development.
he further explained that the wireless search is a pit is the meaning of wireless search product realization form and business ability are still early in the capital market and the expansion of enterprises under the pressure of inertia, ripening is equal to the reminder dead. Baidu not to mature in the wireless search, PC search and search dogs and 360 bite, natural pressure. In this case, there is no direct continuation of the brilliant PC search, how the layout can pave the way for the future of a variety of wireless search possibilities, but also has the ability to distribute traffic and revenue model?
"the answer is" mobile assistant "products. Do a profound meaning of the corresponding: mobile assistant equivalent to the PC browser (mobile assistant brings the mobile phone market is equivalent to the site of the PC browser navigation station). The acquisition of Baidu, in the construction of a wireless search of the ‘two rockets’, which is the value of 91." Wang Xiaochuan said.
