Google-China Censorship Saga Continues

If you thought that all the business between search engine giant Google and China was all over, you’d be terribly wrong as it appears to be ongoing. And now, Google is said to be taking a different approach, to keep Google.cn up and running while not censoring the search results.

According to a report at mashable.com by Ben Parr, the Google-China censorship saga has taken quite a few twists and turns since it first started earlier this year. It all kicked off, when Google announced it would no longer censor its search results on Google.cn.

Back in March, Google made the move to redirect Google.cn to its Hong Kong website. However, earlier today Google announced that the Chinese government described the redirect as “unacceptable,” and would not allow the Google.cn website to operate in China if it continued.

This is why Google has now decided to take a different approach to the situation. Now, instead of redirecting users to the Google.comhk website, the company will provide users with a landing page which links to Google.com.hk. You can read more via the link here.
