Baidu prefers sites that are hosted in China. If it is easy to do, move your site to a Chinese server and If your business requires ICP (a permit for websites to operate in China) number, then you have to host your website in China to obtain the license.
However, managing hosting in Mainland China isn’t convenient for some users, simply because of the language barrier and some weird regulatory restrictions.
So think twice before you make your final decision, and also remember that a site hosted outside of China can occupy the top positions for even the most competitive keywords.
- Choose a popular & standard hosting company
The stability and speed of your servers are important metrics for BaiduSpider to crawl and index your site, so be sure to choose well-known hosting companies without problems.
