Google Bans "Piracy Keywords" In Autocomplete



For All the torrent lover in Malaysia, Google Malaysia has decided to banned all the  autocomplete search for all the piracy keyword such as rapidshare, utorrent, bittorrent and all kind of torrent....here's I found some comments from TorrentFreak....

"All combinations of the word “torrent” are also completely banned. This means that “Ubuntu torrent” will not be suggested as a user types in Ubuntu, and the same happens to every other combination ending in the word torrent. This of course includes the titles of popular films and music albums, which is the purpose of Google’s banlist." -- TorrentFreak


Although this move isn't exactly world shaking, since the ban doesn't affect traditional Google search methods, some questions do arise upon closer scrutiny of the banned keywords.


"What is most surprising about the new filter is that the keywords appear to be picked arbitrarily. It includes BitTorrent clients such as uTorrent and Xunlei, but not BitComet and Vuze. While cyberlockers such as RapidShare and Megaupload are banned, prominent sites such as 4shared, HotFile and MediaFire are not.


In addition, all the names of popular torrent sites including The Pirate Bay are not included in Google’s banlist either. BitTorrent’s Simon Morris agrees that this is odd, to say the least." --TorrentFreak

But it all happen in google.com.my...you still can search the keyword in google.com...In my Office they already blocked all of this kind of stuff....nothing to be uploaded and downloaded...so frustrated....

  2. Howdy! Quick question that's completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I'm trying to find a
    template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. With thanks!
