Google Removes ‘BitTorrent’ From Piracy Search Filter

After years on the blacklist of “piracy related” search terms, BitTorrent is searchable on Google. Users will now see the company’s name (as well as the uTorrent client) in auto-complete, and the results will finally point to the website — a big win for BitTorrent in its quest to divorce itself from piracy. The inclusion also has given the company a noticeable traffic bump. But Google’s filter is a fickle one, so it’s unlikely that many other sites will be removed from the blacklist anytime soon.
