Submission + - Google Begins Country-Specific Blog Censorship (

bonch writes: Google will begin redirecting blogs to country-specific URLs. Blog visitors will be redirected to a URL specific to their location, with content subject to their country's censorship laws. A support post on Blogger explains the change: 'Over the coming weeks you might notice that the URL of a blog you're reading has been redirected to a country-code top level domain, or "ccTLD." For example, if you're in Australia and viewing [blogname], you might be redirected to [blogname] A ccTLD, when it appears, corresponds with the country of the reader's current location.'
