Google Just Made Rap Genius Disappear

Google Just Made Rap Genius Disappear

Looks like Google has completely removed a site from their indexes again.  There are regulations on what Google can remove, but this article brings up a good point.  How do they prevent personal level removal requests?

What if executives start pursuing personal vendettas via the search process? Back in the old days of the telephone book, I take it that Ma Bell wouldn’t have been allowed to just make some particular business “disappear” from the white and yellow pages.

 

This shows how dangerous it can be to utilize a business model that is solely dependent on one source of traffic.  Just remember:

when a huge share of your traffic comes from one particular source, it’s really not your traffic.
