Despite all the hypothetical headwinds, Chinese internet firms continue to post amazing revenue growth. After reporting an 85 percent increase in its third-quarter revenue, Baidu predicted it would produce a similar gain in during the final three months of the year. Since Google's retreat from the mainland, Baidu's search market share in China has climbed from 64 percent in March 2010 to roughly 76 percent, according to the Beijing research firm Analysys International. Baidu is thriving by copying Google's business model. Like its rival, Baidu makes most of its money from placing ads alongside its search results.

Renren's model has been considered similar to that of Facebook -- which is banned in China. Renren operates the leading real name social networking internet platform in China. It enables users to connect and communicate with each other, share information and user generated content, play online games, listen to music, shop for deals and enjoy a wide range of other features and services.
