For the most part, the boom in internet users, has led to a surge in profits for several marquee Chinese websites. China's largest internet portal, Sina recently said advertising revenue soared 30 percent to $82.5 million in the fourth quarter as user traffic increased on interest in Sina's Weibo -- a product similar to Twitter.

On Wednesday Baidu said that its first-quarter net income more than doubled as revenue skyrocketed on traffic growth and higher online marketing sales. Baidu's founder and Chief Executive Officer Robin Li told analysts that China's largest search engine has "plenty of room" to expand. Going forward Baidu will spend more to boost its search business and expand into services including social networking and electronic commerce.
