Using elgooG To Defeat Google Ban In China
from the doesn't-really-work... dept
Okay, I have to admit I’ve been simply looking for an excuse to post a link to elgooG, the backwards Google site, since I first saw it about a month ago (the creators of elgooG get extra credit for being from Cornell). Here’s the perfect time. It seems that New Scientist magazine is claiming that folks in China can get around the Google ban by using elgooG. New Scientist is wrong, though, in saying that elgooG copies all of Google’s cached information. It simply links to the actual Google cache – so for people in China looking for a way to get cached info, elgooG isn’t much of a solution. Besides, at this point, I’d say anyone trying to do Google searches in China is better off just going to Yahoo, where they don’t have to enter their search terms backwards… Though, it is more fun to use elgooG.
