this period, investment will share with you a thorough consideration of the Daniel, have a heart of Mr. Yu Jun summary methodology do Baidu search, Baidu Post Bar and management team in this paper.
1, the two rivers
a lot of people mentioned that when I was in Baidu, and the search engine and paste the two products. This time, I would like to talk with you about the experience of doing these two products, as well as some of the experience summed up.

In addition, the profit is the flow of Internet products, can not be forced, with reputation, the user will take the initiative to help you design a profit model.
