Google Hong Kong Web Site Changes Its Logo

(Bloomberg) -- Google Inc. Chinese name, a symbol of its presence in China since 2006, has been dropped from its Hong Kong web site, less than a week after the U.S. company blamed China’s government-controlled firewall for causing a service disruption.

 
By Bloomberg News (Bloomberg) -- Google Inc.’s Chinese name, a symbol of its presence in China since 2006, has been dropped from its Hong Kong web site, less than a week after the U.S. company blamed China’s government-controlled firewall for causing a service disruption. The logo on www.google.com.hk has been changed to Google “Zhongguo”, or Google China in Chinese, from Google “Gu Ge”, the Chinese translation of the company’s name. Marsha Wang, a Beijing-based spokeswoman for Google, couldn’t immediately comment on the matter. Google has clashed with China since January, when the company said it would no longer censor search results there. Last week, Google started redirecting mainland Chinese users to its Hong Kong site, where officials typically don’t help China censor Web-search results. “They stopped google.cn, so they don’t really need to have ‘Gu Ge’ anymore,” said Jeremy Goldkorn, the Beijing- based founder of Danwei.org, a web site that reports on Chinese media. “It’s kind of symbolic, but I’ll be surprised if they’ve given up the other parts of their business,” including mobile phones and advertising sales, he said by telephone today. Google, based in Mountain View, California, said on March 30 China’s state-controlled firewall prevented many users in China from carrying out Web searches on its Hong Kong site. Users whose searches included phrases such as “Beijing Olympics” and “Beijing Metro” received error messages. --Baizhen Chua.
