Why a particular webpage or site has disappeared from Google’s search results? First, it’s important to remember that Google search results’re generated objectively and are independent of beliefs and preferences of those who work at Google. Accordingly, we don’t remove a page from search results simply because its content’s unpopular or because of complaints about it. “We, however, remove pages from our results if we believe the page /site violates our Webmaster Guidelines. After fixing the site to meet our guidelines, webmaster can ask for re-inclusion. We’ll also remove a site from search results upon request from webmaster responsible for it.” In addition, we’ll remove search results which link to website pages if we believe we’re required to do so by applicable law. We believe in being transparent about this process, and provide notice in our search results when we’ve removed URLs in response to a legal request. In their place is a link to chillingeffects.org, which catalogues these removals as well as legal ground for the removal, e.g. a court decision or a decision by a governmental authority. Anyone can request this type of removal by contacting us,” explained Google Australia blog.
