Sites Google Agreed to Censor in China

This site shows screenshots with differences in search results between Google.com and Google.cn. Results about human rights are omitted, as well as information about Tibet and many news sources.

“Google does not censor results for any search term. The order and content of our results are completely automated; we do not manipulate our search results by hand. We believe strongly in allowing the democracy of the web to determine the inclusion and ranking of sites in our search results. To learn more about Google’s search technology, please visit …”
– Google’s full help entry on “Principles – Does Google censor search results?” (January 26, 2006).

“Google is committed to providing easy access to as much information as possible. For Internet users in China, Google remains the only major search engine that does not censor any web pages.”
– The Google Team, September 2004 (in a reply on why Google News self-censors some sources).
