Internet giant Google Inc said it plans to stop automatically redirecting users of its Google.cn site to its Hong Kong page, in a bid to secure renewal of the company's China service license.

Chief Legal Officer David Drummond said in a blog posting that Google had already started taking a small percentage of users to a landing page on Google.cn that links to Google.com.hk, and would soon stop all redirecting.

"The new page will be connected with Google.com.hk," said Marsha Wang, Google's China-based spokeswoman. "The message we received from relevant authorities is that redirection is not acceptable."
