Google updates its Search algorithms to deal with online harassment
According to the media reports, Google, a tech giant company has reworked and updated its Search algorithms to deal with repeated online harassment issues.
The new update shows that if someone now request a removal from one site with predatory practices, the company will automatically apply ranking protections to help prevent content from other similar low-quality sites appearing in search results for people's names.
This update was made after The New York Times highlighted a case of repeated harassment, and explained some important key aspects with limitations of Google's approach.
According to the media reports, Google said it has designed ranking systems to surface high-quality results for as many queries as possible, but some types of queries are more susceptible to bad actors and require specialised solutions.
