FYI: "google.com" is not the same domain as "www.google.com". So your 
hosts file line for "www.google.com" is the one that should be used, not 
the "google.com" line.

Did you restart or reconfigure Squid after making the hosts file changes?

And, if so does "squid -k parse" show an issues?

And, does the cache manager ipcache report show all these google entries 
with a 'H' flag?
