HOW TO CREATE A BAIDU ACCOUNT FROM OUTSIDE CHINA WITHOUT CHINESE PHONE NUMBER

In this blog we will discuss how to create and register a Baidu Account from outside China without Chinese Phone Number. Creating a Baidu account is essential if you want your website to appear in this mega Chinese Search Engine. A Baidu account will enable you to submit your website to the Baidu Webmaster Tools which in turn will make your website appear in this chinese only search engine to the vast population of China. Not only that, a Baidu Account will also help in Downloads, Baidu Cloud and so many other things.

WHAT IS BAIDU?

Baidu is a Chinese only Search Engine and is the market leader in China in terms of Search Engines. Most people in China use Baidu to search on the web. If you have a website for which you want a global audience than appearance in this Search Engine is going to attract a lot more visitors to your website. Not only it increases the reach for your website but it also can get you the competitive edge on your competitor websites if they are not appearing on Baidu. 

HOW TO CREATE A BAIDU ACCOUNT FROM OUTSIDE CHINA

If you reside in China, than creating a Baidu account is really easy. You just need to go to Baidu.com and register with your Chinese Mobile Phone Number and voila! your account is created. The tricky part is when you try and create the account from outside China from your Overseas Phone Number. 

If you are lucky then the straightforward method will work for you but if you are like me and get stuck at the following errors than the procedure becomes a little technical.

TYPES OF ERRORS

  • The system detects that the current account is registered through an illegal channel.
  • Registration for Overseas and Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Regions is not supported at this time.
  • System cannot process your request at this time. Please try again later.

I had to create my Baidu account the hard way. I got stuck on “the system detects that the current account is registered through an illegal channel” error and searched for a few days until I found the solution and created my Baidu Account.  The method also works with the other errors as well.

If you are able to receive the Verification code on your phone than your account will be created without any problem.

Great post.

Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop
a comment.

Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
(and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!)
the site down quite a bit.

In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of
yourself during the coronavirus scare!

    Thanks Justin!

    I am using Hestia Theme. Sure, you can use it, no problem.

    I have checked your website and it is really good.

    Stay Safe and Take Care!
