Google seems to be on a roll lately, not only have they unleashed a torrent of changes in their current products but they also seem to have launched a Social Media Network in the process. This latest bit of news seems to be dealing with the very core of Google. It’s Search Engine.
In yet another bid to improve results to save us innumerable clicks, Google has omitted all results for .co.cc domains off the search results. Google, According to Engadget, classifies these as ‘freehost’ which means that these are free or cheap domains which are often bulk registered. Automatic scanning apparently revealed a high percentage of malware sites and Google decided to give them the boot.
