Google has banned several websites from its search results due to a glitch.
Google’s search engine will no longer allow websites to use the words “hacker” and “search engine” in their titles or ads.
Users will be unable to find the keywords, and search engine results will no more show the “hackers” and the “search engines” as a result.
The ban comes after users were left baffled by the search results.
“I am a hacker, what the hell is a hacker search engine?” wrote one.
“What the hell are the keywords for?
Why does it have to be that way?
Why can’t I search for something else?,” said another.
“How is it possible for this site to be banned by Google?” said another user.
“Google, what’s wrong with you?
I want to know why they banned this website from search results, but can’t find the words for anything?”
Google said in a statement to the Associated Press that it has implemented “changes” to remove the words from its web properties and added “enhanced filtering” to the search engine.
Google also noted that the word “hacking” is also currently a banned search term.
The company did not comment on how long the word has been in use.
Google said that it is “working to correct” the search issues.
“The term ‘hacker’ was removed from Google search results this week, and it will not be returned.
We’re committed to making search more inclusive for everyone,” Google said.
“To improve our search, we’re implementing changes that will reduce the likelihood that a search result containing the term ‘hack’ or ‘search engine’ will contain the word ‘hacking.'”
The ban will last for a week and Google will allow users to re-submit their searches if they wish.
The Hacker’s Web, a search-engine company that helps people find the best search results for a wide range of businesses, is also facing a similar issue.
It said on Twitter that it would “not be changing the search bar for any website in the near future.”
