In the backdrop of the recent ruling of the Court of Justice of the European Union regarding the Right to be Forgotten, a new website has emerged called “Hidden From Google.” The website displays some of the censored search terms, links, and their source.

As of now, most of the items are listed as unknown and it is difficult to determine how the website will keep a live, up-to-date record of what is vanishing from Google. Hidden From Google also mentions just because someone's name appears in the list doesn't necessarily mean that the concerned person requested the removal of the link. It clearly states "It only lists terms which have, at a given time, been censored on a Google EU domain."

Although it will hardly be a comprehensive list ever, Hidden From Google shows the widespread disappointment and resentment among the people regarding the Right to be Forgotten ruling of the EU.
