Another interesting story in the world of search engines. With the latest ruling in Europe giving people the “right to be forgotten”, Google has a strange new flood of requests. Europeans are sending in submissions to be deleted from individual search results on Google.

What happens to LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter pages of individuals that show up in web searches for their names? Google will certainly figure out how to delete these from the SERPs, but how will these social media networks handle this change? It will be interesting to wait and watch what happens. Stay tuned for more on this latest news about Google search results!
