Kuo left the advertising industry in January 2009 and had been working as a consultant for online video-sharing web site Youku. According to his online profile, he was responsible for international public relations, media relations and business development at Youku.

Baidu posted a 59.6 per cent growth in the first quarter of this year, after Google exited the Chinese market. It also announced a new production unit for Qiyi.com (an independent video subsidiary established in January 2010 to focus on licensed video contents), a move to meet the increasing demand for product placement videos in China.

According to Reuters, Tang Hesong, Baidu's general manager for corporate development, told reporters during a news conference that the company 'is aiming to hold 79 per cent of the market share in China for online and mobile search by next year.'
