Google ads for their decision to stop censoring its Chinese search engine is appearing on google search results. “English-language searches on Google.com for various phrases related to Google and China–such as “Google Leaves China,” or “Google vs. Baidu”–called up an ad that linked to the company’s manifesto on the matter, the corporate blog it issued last week in which it disclosed it was hit by a major cyber attack and said it may pull out of China entirely.
