Leading Chinese Internet company Baidu ranks as the fourth most popular Internet site in Thailand a year after its launch, according to Thai metrics provider Truehits.net.
Baidu submitted its navigation site th.hao123.com for Truehits.net’s traffic ranking November 7, 2012. On every day since, Hao123 has received page views from close to 600,000 users in Thailand.
With the slogan “Everyone starts online here,” Hao123 serves as a Web directory that gathers and categorizes popular sites, ranging from entertainment to sports to technology.

Hao123 received a very warm welcome from Thai users right after its launch in the fall of 2011, because it fulfills the needs of both new and experienced Internet users, allowing them to get where they’re going more conveniently. For newer Internet users, Hao123 puts curated websites and content at their fingertips. For veteran users, Hao123 provides a convenient and safe gateway to their favorite sites.

th.hao123.com has 16 categories of websites and a top zone for the 24 most popular websites in Thailand. Users don’t need to bookmark or memorize hundred of URLs anymore. Also, Hao123 provides safer Internet surfing experiences as it filters out all phishing sites.

Ms. Chadakorn Tanasuwankasem, Operation Manager of Baidu Thailand, said, “Hao123 is a compass and map for Internet users. It helps users surf the web faster and safer.
