Chinese search engine Baidu is sending people to my sites. Anyone experiencing this?
Kenna, not that I know of. Did you find out about this over at Google Analytics? If so, it would be interesting for you to study your visitors’ characteristics using the real time option.
I do get a lot of visitors from Russia though for two of my American nostalgia articles. I just can't figure out why it is only for those two articles. It’s been going on for months.
Yes. The real-time option is super. I sometimes get Russia or Ukraine visitors. That is an interesting situation you have with your nostalgia articles -- part of Google mysteries.
Kenna, that’s been an ongoing issue with both the 2000 and 2012 articles. I really like what you said though about “Google mysteries.” We’ve seen plenty of them recently both before and after the June 5 update.
Unfortunately, you’re probably not going to be able to find what keywords people are using to get to your articles, because of Google’s restraint about not revealing all of that information to us.
I received less than ten visits this year. I have tried to get them to index some of my maths articles. The guides have lots of diagrams, so language shouldn't necessarily be a major barrier for readers if they can follow mathematical notation (Baidu prefer to index Chinese language articles though ). To submit articles for indexing, you need a Chinese mobile phone number though. However according to Semrush, it's a waste of time trying to rank with a .com website, it needs to be .cn. So would there be a benefit if niche sites had corresponding.cn mirrors or would the content on them be considered as duplicate in Google's eyes?
Eugene, how is traffic from Baidu categorized over at GA? Is it under organic search, referrals, or a separate entity?
In the last few months, I had four visits from Baidu classed as organic traffic and four from Baidu.com, classed as referrals. Six visitors were from China, two from Japan.

Despite yahoo efforts to be of course the top search engine in world, Google continue to rule. While queries through yahoo search usually has a lower bounce rate, that from Google from my own experience has a bit high bounce rate.
