Baidu Account Management

Can I see the ads and keywords to be used before they’re activated?

Can I manage a Baidu account if I do not speak Chinese?

Even with prior PPC experience, managing a PPC account on Baidu will be very difficult for non-Chinese speakers. While an English version of Baidu’s account management interface is available, one will find it difficult to localize site content and keywords without native-level Chinese skills. It is certainly better to use a Chinese agency if possible. Read more here.
