When Google will come back to China ?

Google available in China for over an hour ! 

Google had its own Easter miracle. For a very short time, Google’s services were available in China for the first time in over three years. South China Morning Post reported that mainland Chinese IP addresses were able to access Google websites from 11:30 PM Sunday, March 27 to 1:15AM the next day. Google has managed to slip through Chinese censorship by introducing a series of new servers in some Asian areas, which took the Chinese authorities quite some time to identify and block.

This was the first time that Google search engine was available in China since it got blocked unexpectedly four years ago, in 2012. This action took place six months after Google announced in a blog post that its search engine was “inconsistent and unreliable” in mainland China. 

 

Google winning it against China?

These hundred and five minutes of Google search engine available in China were the first glimmer of hope of a victory for the Internet search giant in its ongoing battle with China. Google closed its China search engine in 2010 after refusing to censor search results and threatened to leave the whole country a few months before that. The following year, Google said China had hacked its Gmail to stop social revolution of the anti-government group Jasmine Revolution.

In December 2014, the Google Mail service had been totally blocked after users were able to access Gmail messages through third party applications, such as Microsoft Outlook. YouTube, owned by Google, has also been blocked since 2009.

 

The “Great Firewall” still makes victims !  

The overall censorship from Google is part of the “Golden Shield” Project of China, operating for 18 years now and aiming to help the Ministry of Public Security (MPS) to control what Chinese citizens can see online. The blocking of Internet services is known as “the Great Firewall” and claimed many victims other than Google. Indeed, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat are some of the major social networks to not be available in China.

There was no press communication from Google or Chinese officials to the fact that the search engine had been available in China. Having said that, with Google Play Store’s arrival in China which will occur this year, a quick availability could have been a glance at the upcoming future …
