“Sites with high numbers of removal notices may appear lower in our results,” he said in Google’s blog post.
Announcing its future step, Google said that it has received more than 4.3 million complaints regarding piracy in the past 30 days and still going to be receiving. So for secure option and resolving the problems, it modifies its formula.
“This ranking change should help users find legitimate, quality sources of content more easily — whether it’s a song previewed on NPR’s music website, a TV show on Hulu or new music streamed on Spotify,” he further added.
Now, the website against which maximum number of copyright pirate complaints is to be recorded, Google will sink that websites, being strict with its content.
