Reasons of Both Sides Regarding Google Searches

Google Searches
Under European law, any of their residents can ask Google to hide webpages from search results if they feel that they intrude on their privacy. It was considered their right not be searched online.

The "right to be forgotten" came into force for Google in 2014. Using an online form, residents could enter the URL they want delisted from search results and the reason why they wanted to be excluded.

Technology startup Reputation VIP runs a service that sends people's requests onto Google. It says that it sent 8.3 percent of the total amount of "right to be forgotten" requests to Google, so its data gives an interesting sample of what people wanted to hide.

The primary reason given is that Google is invading their right to privacy with 62.1 percent of the respondents saying so, while 9.6 percent says that Google searches can damage their reputation.

On the other hand, the most common reason for Google refusing a "right to be forgotten" request is that the page is about what someone does in their job, so it doesn't include personal information. And the second-most-popular reason is that the person filing the request is the person who created the content in the beginning.
