Hello. I think there is something wrong with my Samsung S8. I can’t use the Google Search on it. It says something like
”This site can’t be reached
www.google.com took too long to respond.
Try: Checking the connection
I have tried checking the connection by visiting some websites. I can visit local websites quickly. What is going on? How do I fix this problem? I am in China on a business travel now. Thanks a lot.
When I tried to see what will happen if I google about “what is the best search engine in the world” with Google Search, I tried twice and have the same result. I either saw it at the end of a list of search engine logo like Bing, Yahoo!, ChaCha, DuchkDuckGo, Aol., Baidu, Wolfram Alpha and Google Search or not found it in the list on the result page. It is fun that the biggest and most popular Google Search is arranged at the end of the list or not listed on the result page which does not stand for the rank in fame and popularity of a search engine though. According to many reports, Google Search is undoubtedly one of the important and powerful search engines in the world. When you ask the Chinese what search engine they use most, they will say Baidu. But when you change the question and ask some Chinese people who know both search facilities well that what you think it is the best search engine between Google Search and Baidu Search. Many of them may tell you that Google is their choice. Google Search is one internet-related service or product of the Google company which is bought by Alphabet Inc. from its founders Larry Page and Sergey in 1998. Other products or services of Google Inc. includes Google Maps or Waze, Google Calendar, Gmail, Inbox, Gmail, Google Docs, Sheets and Slides, Google Allo or Duo, the Andorid mobile OS, Chrome web browser, Google Translate, Google Drive, Chrome OS, Google photos, YouTube etc. All the products range widely from software to such hardware products as Daydream View virtual reality headset, Google Keep, and so on. The company can be classified as a giant in the industry all across the world. It has been favored by users in many different countries. But in China, the Google Search and its other products like Gmail has suffered a completely different treatment by the government. It has been proved that users in China can’t access Gmail and use Google Search because both products are both blocked by the government with the notorious Great Firewall of China. When users try to do so, there will be an error message sent back which may say something like “This site can’t be reached…” on Google Chrome or “This page can’t be displayed…” on Internet Explorer. What is worse, it is reported that there are more than several thousand of websites or services being blocked in China. Such famous and popular websites as New York Times, Time, Reuters, The Washington Post, Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, Vimeo, Flickr, , Dropbox, Line, Blogger, Github, Twitter, Hulu, HBO, USA Network, BBC iPlayer, Spotify, Deezer, Star Sports, Sky Italia, etc. are all included in the list. However, in this article, we will introduce you an easy and efficient way to visit Google in China on Samsung S8.
If you are looking for a technique that can not only help you access any unavaible or blocked websites in China, but also a method to help you stay protected from being attacking by many possible threats or disturbed by online marketers, a quailty VPN service can be your best consideration. A VPN is the abbreviation of Virtual Private Network. It can work as a middleman between your device and the other services. Your original IP will be covered by a new one with the VPN service online. In this way, the websites will fail to decide where you are from and thus you will be allowed to access all the content on them. And at the same time, the GFW will fail to tell which service you are heading for,and thus you will succeed in managing to access the blocked websites. What is more, your privacy will be well protected while using a VPN to go online.
The detail guide to use a VPN consists of three steps.
Step 1: First, it is needed to go to sign up for an account from a VPN service provider. Usually there are various service plan available, pick up the one that you think it best for you. After that, you will be provided the options to make the payment. Choose the payment method and fill in all the information to complete. An email will be sent to you to confirm the account upon payment being completed. After confirming, the next step is to download and install the software onto your system.
Step 2: Download and install the VPN software. Usually, a link to download the software will be provided in the confirmation email. You may be presented with a list of software where software for different operating systems or devices are listed. Select the one for your systems to finish downloading. The installation is easy, just click through the procedures as prompted all the way to complete.
Step 3: Connect to a US-based server or other appropriate server location on VPN. When the software is ready, the left you need to do is to start the application and fill in your account detail and choose a proper location. You can select any server located in US. If you like, you can also choose other locations like Canada. It is all up to you. Now everything is done.
For users who are looking for reliable brands of VPN services, the following three can be listed among their best choices. Although none of these brands is good enough to be considered as perfect in all aspects, they are very competitive in many aspects compared with their competitors.
Express VPN is the best in class VPN service provider as they are leading and advanced in terms of technical aspects. The technical aspect is most important for any user since they have to experience needed protection and privacy from all the rising security threats and issues.

Headquartered in Panama, a country where people scream for freedom from NSA snooping, NordVPN is one of the most popular VPN services in the world. Even though its pricing is slightly expensive, it doesn’t prevent the company from being one of the most favored VPN service providers at all since it is a company that can ease the user’s safety concern to the most degree.
IPVanish includes a number of amazing and useful tools into its service. You may find its pricing a little bit high, but lots of users are attracted by the smooth and secure access to BitTorrent and P2P services.
