blocked by China's government

Google's recently launched China portal was inaccessible in the Chinese cities of Shanghai and Beijing on Friday. Preliminary tests from Shanghai indicated that the site was being blocked at the government-operated backbone server.

By creating a unique address for China, Google hopes to make its search engine more widely available and easier to use in the world's most populous country.

To obtain the Chinese license, Google agreed to omit Web content that the country's government finds objectionable. Google will base its censorship decisons on guidance provided by Chinese government officials. Spam Daily News | blocked by China's government
