Submission + - Attack of the Google DMCA Search Ranking Hysteria->

Lauren Weinstein writes: "On Friday morning, Google blogged that they were beginning to incorporate a new signal in their search ranking algorithm, that took into account the numbers of valid copyright removal (e.g. DMCA) notices received for sites.

This signal reportedly could impact search results rankings by lowering the rankings of such sites (notably, not "vanishing" the sites from search results).

Immediately, the Net lit up with anguished and angry diatribes claiming that Google had "caved in" to the RIAA and MPAA — both of whom were apparently at least grudgingly pleased by the announcement."
