Google says especially Facebooks links have been removed due to “forget right”




Links to Facebook pages were most removed from Google since the search giant of the European Court results must remove as citizens so request. That should in some cases. Many links were also removed to YouTube.

Since the judgment of the European Court are 3331 pages of Facebook removed from the Google search index, which that site is going to head, according to the new transparency report from Google. In second place is New Zealand’s social network, with 3287 pages, followed by YouTube. Google Groups, which indexes include Usenet, is in fifth place.

In early May ruled the European Court that search engines results should remove in certain cases when citizens request it. Then, it might be information that is no longer relevant or information someone harms disproportionate. The link can be removed even if the page referenced legally it is unacceptable.

The transparency request further appears that Google has now removed. Totaling 171,000 URLs from its search index There were 238,000 URLs not deleted. From the Netherlands nearly 9,000 removal requests came in, which related to more than 33,000 URLs. Of these, 11,000 URLs were actually removed. From Belgium, more than 15,000 URLs were submitted for removal; that happened in about 6,000 cases.

The transparency request Google gives further examples of how it deals with the removal requests. Served as a Belgian request to remove to an article about a contest he participated as a minor one link; Google complied with that request. A request by a former priest from the UK who committed sexual abuse, is not removed.
