More demands made in the quest to be forgotten

0 comments

By now, most SEOs are familiar with the Right to Be Forgotten legislation in Europe, which allows individuals to request removal of content surrounding their name from Google's index. This content appearing in the search results can affect a person's ability to secure or maintain employment among other negative consequences. 

The UK has once again challenged Google on the topic. Essentially, the whole Right to Be Forgotten concept leads to more articles being created that might name a person. With these articles appearing, they haven't been truly forgotten. The UK is fighting to have those articles removed now too.

Do you think this was an inevitable mess that needed cleaning or do you think The Right to Be Forgotten has gone too far?
