Shanghai Morning Post, 3/25/10
Ten of Google China's 27 authorized advertising agencies have reported that business is operating normally, including their advertising displays, and that they expect their partnership with Google to continue without disruption for at least the next several months.
A representative of the board of directors for authorized Google ad reseller Shanghai Hotsales Network Info Technology said that while the servers have migrated to Hong Kong and the domain name has been redirected, all other business including ad display remains the same. The media department of another reseller, Shanghai Tianqing Information Technology, added that since Google's sales and technology teams remain on the Mainland and continue to provide support, the only effect so far has been on server speeds, with no changes to search results or, therefore, advertising.
Three agencies admitted that the Google affair had led to the loss of a few clients. The marketing department of one agency said that profit had definitely declined, and that the agency was currently attempting to transition its business.
