The Chinese government doesnâ€™t like Google. This is why Chinaâ€™s internet is barred from everything which is Google. China is probably the only place on earth where Google is struggling to do well. Recently however, there was good news for Google that despite their grievances, the Chinese internet regulatory authority has renewed Googleâ€™s license (as an Internet Content Provider (ICP)) which will allow the search giant to continue its operation in China as a search engine.
Google has announced that they will be redirecting all the Google.cn traffic to its Hong Kong servers and will provide uncensored results to all the Chinese users.
Everyone accessing Google.cn will be redirected to Google.hk. Google also mentioned that the services might be slow because of the traffic that is being sent to Hong Kong servers.
Rumors has it that the search engine giant, Google, plans to close it operations in Chinae as early as today. Some people who are familiar with the situation revealed that Google will leave China by March 22.
The main issue started when few other large companies in the Internet, finance, technology, media and chemical sectors, were targeted in a cyber-attack earlier in January. The cyber-attack resulted in a theft of intellectual property. And from that time onwards, Google informed the Chinese government that they will not censor Chinese search engine results and are willing to close its operations in the country if no solution is found.
