Google Rebang to be Chinese Zeitgeist?
By Tony Ruscoe
Remember the /rebang
directory that was spotted
in Google’s robots.txt file yesterday? Ken Wang from GSeeker
(a Chinese blog) noticed it was briefly live and showed signs that it is probably going to be a Chinese version of the Google Zeitgeist
Haochi posts more over at the Googlified blog, suggesting that “ReBang” can be translated from Chinese as “Hot Ranking” – adding that this is “not a good translation, but you get the idea.”
The address www.google.com/rebang is currently redirecting me to www.google.com/rebang/home, although all I get is a “Not Found” 404 error.
