Google "Starting next week, we will begin taking into account a new signal in our rankings: the number of valid copyright removal notices we receive for any given site. Sites with high numbers of removal notices may appear lower in our results. This ranking change should help users find legitimate, quality sources of content more easily - whether it's a song previewed on NPR's music website, a TV show on Hulu or new music streamed from Spotify." Wait, did I hear someone say the Google Play store needs content too? Joking aside, understandable move.

I think I've actually seen an option to "hide content from this site" after going back from a particular result to the main result list in Google - can't reproduce it now, though.

IIRC, Google forbids using "white-text-on-white" trick and you get unlisted from index if caught.
