Google bows to mighty China
Google was ousted from the lucrative Chinese market eight years ago. The corporation withdrew all of their services to PRC’s population in a row of demand to censor the search results to exclude some search queries and certain sites from appearing in SERP.

Now Google is seeking to return to PRC and is ready to bend to communist censorship. It happens that China is one of the best markets still untouched by the Good Directorate. The Corporation puts off the rhetoric and gets involved in the project «Dragonfly» which is a sort of Google services tailored up to the Chinese regulators demands.

Progress on the project «Dragonfly» development has been noted after a meeting between Chief Executive Sundar Pichai and some top Chinese government officials. If Google will succeed in getting to the market it will be only half of the success. The search giant needs to reconquer living space dominated by the Chinese own search engine - the Baidu.

Some search terms about human rights, democracy, religion, sexuality and  protests will be banned. In some way the «Dragonfly» resemble Google for Kids. The censorship register need to be synchronized  with the Great Firewall which is still work in progress.

Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC), part of which the Firewall will have to approve the ‘castrated’ versions of the Google products in order to allow the Chinese to use the «Dragonfly». As for now there is no reliable information about the perspective of Google’s underdog re-entry to the country.
