Sogou, the new search engine from Sohu, has a ranking for every web site. I went to their web site, and checked out the following web sites:baidu (type in link:www.baidu.com in the blank and hit “search”, do similar for the other sites), netease, sina, sohu and stlplace. Here are their scores:
baidu: 90, sohu: 81, sina: 72, netease: 64, stlplace: 37.
Google has similar functionality. As mattet of fact, the Google’s Page Rank (TM) ranks the popularity of web pages based on the external links of a page.
It seems Charles Zhang does not like guys from Ningbo. As you may know, the founder of Netease Ding Lei and yours truely are both from Ningbo. I believe Robin Li (CEO of Baidu) is originally from San’xi, which is neighbour of Shan’xi (Charles’ home province).
