As participation grows, Baidu may open up more advertising channels to test out Aladdin’s profitability.

Baidu, one of the biggest internet giants in the world and China’s top search engine, recently released its hotel ads product across multiple platforms. This new product, called “Aladdin,” bears a lot of resemblance to Google Ad’s Hotel campaigns. 

Multiple Channels for Publishing Due to Baidu’s Platform Diversity

Similar to Google, Baidu has its own ecosystem to operate on multiple touchpoints.

Other than the user flow, another difference to note is that even though Aladdin uses CPC-based bidding, Baidu only accepts bid changes once per month with no bid levers available for strategic targeting. Therefore, the current Aladdin auction is more of a CPA and CPC hybrid bidding type, instead of the traditional CPC bidding familiar to most advertisers.
