I noticed while surfing around looking for some specific environmental information (it's part of m job to research) and I see that many official .gov, .org and .edu sites that were previously listed for search terms are gone and replaced by a chinese government website that has made mirror copies of the official sites.
A search for:
... reveals thousands of official websites that are copied. Even the official home page for the U.S. Dept. of Energy!
Why would google list a communist country's copies of official U.S. government websites instead of the actual sites?
I took snippets from many of these pages and searched google only to find the Chinese versions listed in the serps most of the time, and in each case, the official website was either not in listed, or buried several pages down.
I'm not talking about spam websites, there are literally thousands of official government and educational resources that seem to have been pagejacked.
maybe pagejacked isn't the correct term, but whatever it is...
I find it very strange that when I click on results from some of my specific searches, I land on pages that appear to be offical U.S. Government websites, but are in reality, copies of the page on a Chinese government website.
I find it confusing that I ONLY find these types of results on Google.
Why would Google even show mirrored results of U.S. Govt. web pages on Chinese Govt. servers?
