PIRATE UPDATE has rolled out to Google’s Algorithm

Google announced another big change to their algorithm on August 10th which targets sites that have numerous copyright infringement complaints against them. According to the announcement released within Google’s Blog…

“Starting next week, we will begin taking into account a new signal in our rankings: the number of valid copyright removal notices we receive for any given site. Sites with high numbers of removal notices may appear lower in our results. 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 from Spotify.”

If you’re an Internet “Pirate”…. beware!
