ECU’s #SMI Visits Google Today! #innovation #ecusanfran14

Rather, Google merely removes those links from its search results, making it harder for anyone interested–perhaps future employers–to find it. To apply, European users have to provide Google with a name and email address, photo identification, a concise explanation of why the search result is "irrelevant, outdated, or otherwise inappropriate," and a signature.
