Google.cn relocated to Hong Kong

Well, as I said in the previous posting on this matter, Google decided to ‘close’ operations in China – to relocate to Hong Kong as www.google.com.hk.

In addition, there is no self-censorship in place anymore – anything goes, according to reports.

The Chinese Government is ‘disgusted’ at these developments and reiterated that foreign firms need to stick to Chinese law in China – which includes the censorship which has been used as the football in this situation (seeing that the actual reason for the bruhaha is Operation Aurora).

Google had a 35% market share of the search engine market in China – and now leaves a gaping hole in the online search/advertising space. So, is bing.cn next?
