Google is sending notices via the Google Webmaster Tools to webmasters who had specific URLs removed from the European versions of Google in adherence to the Right to be Forgotten law. Previously we reported, Google has created a form in compliance with the ruling of The Court of Justice of the European Union, allowing users to request removal of results which are inadequate, irrelevant, or excessive in relation to the purposes for which they were processed.

Now, if URLs from your website are removed from the European versions of Google, the search engine will notify you which pages were removed via the Google Webmaster Tools. Click here to see a screenshot of the Webmaster Tools notice of removal from Google search.

The notice says,
