Google Censors Web Results Sometimes

With this whole Google Censoring Google China fact, Google had to make a change to its "Does Google censor search results?" page. Gary covers the before and after;


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


It is Google's policy not to censor search results. However, in response to local laws, regulations, or policies, we may do so. When we remove search results for these reasons, we display a notice on our search results pages. Please note: For some older removals (before March 2005), we may not show a notice at this time.

John Battelle is notifying the media front with this news, I love it when he picks this stuff up.

And of course we got the forum coverage at WebmasterWorld.
