Google has changed the tag line on the front page of its Palestinian edition
from "Palestinian Territories" to "Palestine."
The www.google.ps page also now says "Palestine" in Arabic under the Google logo, the BBC reported.
Google did not comment on the change, the report said.
The terminology is a controversial issue because the official status of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem has not been decided.
In November, the United Nations upgraded Palestine's status from entity to a non-member observer state.
The United States and Israel opposed the decision, the report said.
An earlier bid by Palestinians to become a full member in the United Nations was denied due to the Security Council's lack of support.
