Search Censorship

An interesting example of google search results censorship - Check image search results for tiananmen square by Google India - http://images.google.cn/images?hl=zh-CN&q=tiananmen%20square&btnG=Google+%E6%90%9C%E7%B4%A2&sa=N&tab=wi
and by Google China - http://images.google.co.in/images?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rls=GGLG,GGLG:2006-03,GGLG:en&q=tiananmen%20square&sa=N&tab=wi

The idea of search censorship is not very new. Search for "jew" in google india and google canada. Google Canada would not show a link to http://www.jewwatch.com/ in their search results which will appear at number 2 or 3 in Google India. Btw another interesting thing is the very first sponsored link at the top of page when one search for "jew". The link points to - http://www.google.com/explanation.html.

Waise, the info on Google censorship on the term jew was news for me..

Thanks for the info :-)

Btw, I wanted to blog something similar... and now with this additional 'jew' info I have more material to keep readers bored.

Another reason why I have not done it so far is because I have already put up one anti-Google post in my 10 posts so far.
