Google to skew search results to punish PIRATES

Online copyright infringers take note. Beginning next week, Google will modify its search algorithms so that it ranks search results based on the number of valid copyright removal notices it receives for a given site, among other factors.

The search giant says it "regularly" receives requests to remove URLs from its search database from copyright holders and the organizations who represent them. That's something of an understatement – it had received 4.3 million such requests in the last month alone.

According to a blog post by Google senior VP of engineering Amit Singhal, the company will begin using this removal-notice data as one of around 200 "signals" that help it decide which results are most relevant for a given search.

It seems Google has no longer got the balls to stand up to the cartels. It's surprising that Google lays down and let's others tell it what to do. It's hardly a move that will earn it any respect from the average user.

Pirate Bay and isoHunt Respond to Google Search Result Punishment
Quote
Today we are beginning to see the first signs of Google’s announced punishment of “pirate” websites. The changes are resulting in lower search rankings for many file-sharing sites, but that doesn’t seem to bother The Pirate Bay. They are, however, disappointed that Google is giving in to the demands of the entertainment industries. The owner of fellow BitTorrent site isoHunt has gone a step further with a call for protest against antitrust bullying and censorship
