Unblock in Saudi Arabia Successful: Squidoo

Filed under: Saudi Internet — Tags: , — Khaled A. @ 1:28 pm

Squidoo is finally unblocked in Saudi Arabia. “Squidoo is a website designed to make it easy for anyone, for free, to set up a single page on a topic he or she knows or cares a lot about. Advertising revenue is shared with these content creators, and some of it is given to charity.” I mentioned that it was blocked back in 2007. And I am glad that it is finally unblocked.

Unblock in Saudi Arabia Successful: Vimeo

I reported earlier that Vimeo.com was blocked in Saudi Arabia. And as I was browsing around, I discovered that Vimeo.com is unblocked! It’s a shame that DailyMotion is now blocked in its place.

I believe that the blocking methods in Saudi Arabia are being done like this:

Flickr no longer blocked in Saudi Arabia

Filed under: Saudi Internet — Tags: , , — Khaled A. @ 1:51 pm

Well, looks like flickr is no longer blocked in Saudi Arabia. It seems they applied a new censoring policy.

Blocked again! Forget what I said…

Unblocked … again … a bug probably ??
