Google To Scrub Web Search Results More Widely

Google says it is closing a loophole that allowed Europeans to view search results that have been delisted if the person is searching from the country where the request was filed.

To address the concerns of European authorities, the Internet giant will soon start polishing search results across all its websites when someone conducts a search from the country where the removal request originated, a person close to the company said. That means that if a German resident asks Google to de-list a link popping up under searches for his or her name, the link will not be visible on any version of Google's website, including, when the search engine is accessed from Germany.
