Hmmm. I like how people are comparing English search engine queries btw Google.cn and Google.com, when in reality, Chinese people will be searching based on Chinese terms and not English terms. Can they even spell Dalai Lama, Tiananmen Square or Falun Gong in English anyways?

Ken, I know very well my approach to comparing results is limited. I greatly appreciate if Chinese readers can send along Chinese comparisons, which will be even more relevant. My own research unfortunately is restricted to English or German, as I don't speak Chinese.

I've just made this: http://googlecompare.nfshost.com/?search=tiananmen+square tool for comparison of chinese and english Google (both using English search terms and english language only websites).

While doing it I found that some pretty odd stuff was happening including constant changing between http://www.splasho.com/blog/files/images/wikipedia.GIF and http://www.splasho.com/blog/files/images/nowikipedia.GIF

So I guess its still undergoing a lot ofwork.
