Google Pull the Plug on China: Now Redirect to Hong Kong

By Jamie Pert - Mar 22, 2010

Last week we suggested that it looked as if Google were all set to pull the plug on (Google China), we are now hearing that Google has taken down, now instead redirects straight to (Hong Kong).

Google and China fell out back in December when Google suspected that the Chinese government were responsible for a sophisticated attack on Google’s corporate infrastructure, despite denying this it looks as if Google had sufficient evidence to confirm that the Chinese government were responsible to a degree.

Google’s Chief Legal Officer David Drummond released this statement on his blog; “earlier today we stopped censoring our search services—Google Search, Google News, and Google Images—on” and added “Users visiting are now being redirected to, where we are offering uncensored search in simplified Chinese, specifically designed for users in mainland China and delivered via our servers in Hong Kong”.

Apparently the Chinese government were unwilling to compromise with Google, therefore Google had become sick of network attacks and was also tired of censoring search results, therefore U.S. executives decided that the site should be pulled, for further details check out the link below.
