Searches on Google’s Chinese-language site failed to return results on Tuesday from within China, but it was not immediately clear if the site was blocked or if the problems were due to a service glitch.

Google last week said it would no longer bow to government censors in Beijing and effectively shut down its Chinese search engine, re-routing mainland users to its uncensored site in Hong Kong.

Searches for a range of non-sensitive terms on google.com.hk such as &quotChina” and &quotAmerica” in both Chinese and English resulted in error messages. The same searches had returned results in recent days.

The Google Maps section however appeared to be working, as was the music section of google.com.hk.

A Google spokeswoman was not immediately available for comment.

A page on Google’s website summarising service availability in mainland China says there are &quotno issues” with web searches.
