Bingo, the popular bingo game that’s become a social network for young adults, will soon be blocked on Google and Yahoo search engines.
Bingo is one of a growing number of sites that are banned from the Google and Facebook search engines because of a recent crackdown by the U.S. government on online piracy.
The move to ban the sites comes a week after Google and Bing were forced to apologize for the ads on their websites that have featured Bingo links and video ads, as well as ads promoting illegal downloads of Bingo games.
(The sites have since been shut down.)
“Bingo will no longer appear in Google’s search results,” a Google spokesperson said.
Yahoo also has been blocked from Google and YouTube.
“We’re disappointed that Google and YHOO have decided to block Bingo from search results, which is contrary to Google’s commitment to protecting users from harmful content,” Yahoo said in a statement.
“While we’re not happy with the decision, we believe it’s a necessary step in protecting our users from potentially harmful content on our sites.”
Yahoo has said it will work with Bingo and other sites to get around the restrictions.
Bingos sister sites will now only appear on Google, Yahoo and Facebook.
The company has yet to release a list of sites it will block, but the search giant already blocks Bingo.
The announcement comes a day after Google announced it would be working with other search engines to block YouTube, Google Maps, Yahoo!, Bing and many other sites.
Yahoo is the only search engine to block all the sites on its search engine, including Bing.
In January, Yahoo removed Bingo’s YouTube videos from search engine results.
Yahoo has been fighting the U to block sites from its search results since January because it believes the sites are stealing search engine traffic.
Yahoo said it is blocking Bingo on Google search and in Yahoo News, where it will also block any links to Bingo related sites.
It also blocked Bingo in Yahoo Finance and Yahoo Finance Business.
Google also blocked the sites in March.
“In the weeks since the ban on Bingo was announced, we’ve been working with Yahoo and Bingo to find a resolution that will be fair to both sides,” a search giant spokesperson said in an emailed statement.
The U. S. Commerce Department recently said it plans to enforce its own search blocking regulations to prohibit illegal search engines and their affiliates from using Google search results.
The US Department of Commerce has already blocked the popular Bingo game from Google searches.
Google has said its search algorithm automatically indexes the pages of sites including Bingo before they appear on the search results pages.
The search giant also has banned sites that display links to other illegal downloading sites.
