Websites Blocked By China

Is Your Site Being Blocked by the Great Firewall of China?

Scoroncocolo, Scoroncocolo Tech Pages, Websites Blocked in ChinaWith the launch of the new Website, Blocked In China, we can now determine which Websites are blocked, meaning banned, in Mainland China.

Facebook Is Not The Only Website Being Blocked In China

Facebook Is Not The Only Website Being Blocked In China

According to statistics compiled by Internet World Stats the population of China, excluding Hong Kong and Macao, is over 1 billion 300 million people and of that population 35.7% or 477 million are connected to the Internet. Of the 477 million people regularly using the Internet in China, only 391,000 have Facebook accounts. Why? It's because Facebook is banned by the Chinese government. The Chinese government requires all Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to block Facebook. Access to Facebook is available to Internet users in China only through proxy server software.

For several years there have been a number of sites on the Web that can tell you if your Website is banned (blocked) by the Great Firewall of China. Recently, a new site has been added into the mix that I believe is far superior to all the rest. Satisfy your curiosity by visiting Blocked In China to find out if your Website or any other site you're curious about is currently banned in China.

Websites Blocked in China

China Is Not Blocking My Site - Yet, Anyway.

Facebook is by no means the only Website blocked by the PRC or the People's Republic of China. As of today, you can't access Google anywhere in the PRC meaning you can't search the Web with Google in China. The Chinese government also blocks Twitter, YouTube, Google Documents and Picasa. The Chinese government even blocks the tech blog Technorati. Why? I have no idea. Here's a page listing some Websites blacklisted by the government in China. This is not a complete list of URLs blocked by the PRC. Some days these sites are blocked and on other days they aren't blocked. Facebook and Twitter are always blocked.

Go to Blocked In China, type a URL into their "search" box, hit your Enter key and find out if that particular Website is being blocked by the Chinese Government.
