Many people would site Google as the number one Internet search engine in the world, but most aren't aware of how much content the government asks the Google transparency report to remove from the Interweb annually. This interactive infographic, titled 'Why Does the World Ask Google to Censor?' visually shows the different country governments in the world that have asked Google to remove specific Internet content.

A rather revealing tool, this interactive infographic lets users hover their cursors over specific countries and find out which country governments asked to have Internet content removed and why it was approved to be removed. Each country is also a hyperlink so users can be directed to more information about the specific country. The overall infographic lets users discover why Google is censoring Internet data from several targeted areas, many of which don't even have government-allowed Internet access.
