China Redirecting Search

China Redirecting SearchChinese search engine users have been experiencing an odd phenomenon lately. If they type a query into Google’s Chinese site – or into Yahoo, Microsoft’s Live Search or others – they’ve been redirected to the Chinese search engine Baidu, according to a report from Information Week. Baidu is China’s leading search engine.   No one knows thereason, and speculation runs from malware to displeasure with the reception the Dalai Llama received in Washington to the fact the Google has just introduced a Taiwanese version of YouTube. China refuses to acknowledge Taiwan’s independence, claiming it as part of the mainland country.   The Chinese government exercises great controlover the Internet there, but so far no one has any idea whether its hand is behind the redirection.
