The Google API release conincided nicely with China's censorship. You
can work it out ;)

Thanks Google!

google's problem or other thing? Is there anyone know why?

Google.com has always been blocked in the chinese address range. There
is however a special website of Google China, but it deliveres "country
specific" results, that is, filtered in some way. This is however
nothing unusual, just the filters applied are different for different
countries.

Google does that due to a special contract, and they do it out of their
free will.

There is however a number of hacks around this, such as the elgooG
mirror...
