It is not China that blocks it, it is Google. China's autonomous routing domain drops in transit all requests to the top level domain "google.com". If you access google scholar through a private VPN on a server that belongs to almost any American company (e.g. Digital Ocean in my case), then google will block your IP because apparently they are afraid their "free" service will be mined for free by an industrial competitor:
We're sorry... ... but your computer or network may be sending
automated queries. To protect our users, we can't process your request
You got to use one of the lower quality free vpns on the phone with multiple rolling servers that use ips not flagged as commercial by Google. Beware though those free VPNs can scrape your personal sensitive data from your phone as well.
By the way you can still see your profile through the link
your scholar account id
you just can't view who cited you or run any search.
Pity because I just want to check who is that one person who just cited one of my papers that I thought no one would ever cite...
