Google unbans uTorrent and BitTorrent in its autocomplete searches

After several years of presence in the blacklist from Google, the terms BitTorrent and uTorrent has just been rehabilitated within the suggestive search engine of Google. A situation that boosts research with those words.

After two years of blacklisting, terms BitTorrent and uTorrent appear again in the auto-complete feature offered by the Google search engine, TorrentFreak said. As a reminder, this feature displays search suggestions before the user completes drafting its request in the provided field.

BitTorrent and uTorrent was not suggested by Google earlier and no page using this words were displayed in the search engine. But recently, the two software titles which, often used to download illegal files, have been removed from the blacklist by Google. TorrentFreak has seen a significant increase in applications related to these words for several weeks.



If Google has not communicated on the turnaround, it seems that BitTorrent and uTorrent are the first famous list which is released under Google. The Mountain View company has never detailed the contents of the blacklist, merely noted that the terms “closely were associated with piracy”. RapidShare, Pirate Bay and Megaupload are some of the similar service closed there over a year and a half which make particular part.
