Websites removed from Google’s index due to copyright requests has now reached 1.75 billion at the time of this writing. That number can be confirmed by the counter on the copyright section of Google’s transparency report.
For comparison’s sake, the amount of copyright takedown requests that are rejected are mere 39 million. Year over year the overall amount of copyright requests has seen a 53% increase.
Within the report you can also track the amount of takedown requests Google has received over time. You can also track pending URLs, invalid URLs, duplicated URLs, and more. Google is apparently quick at responding to requests, as there are absolutely zero pending requests at the moment.
