Before taking that statistic as fact, I'd love to know how Analysys International measures this (and who they are specifically). For instance, you can't just measure referring traffic from google.cn, as people may switch to google.hk or google.com... so do they measure any google.* referrer when the user comes from an IP located in China?

Anyone got the link to the Analysis International original report?
