It makes me wonder how closely other search engines are being monitored. Personally I stop using Google long ago.

Additionally I have mixed feelings about this anyway. Forgetting is part of time healing all wounds and helps people change their ways. However what "right to be forgotten" does someone like Richard Nixon (or his heirs now) have for everyone to forget his poor choices? It's infused in history and describes certain parts of society that endure.

from the ruling:
Par ailleurs, ce droit n’est pas absolu : il doit être concilié avec le droit à l’information du public, notamment lorsque la personne concernée est une personne publique, sous le double contrôle de la CNIL et du juge.
which loosely translates to:
The right [to be forgotten] is not absolute: it must respect the right to inform, especially when the person [asking to be forgotten] is a public person. The decision must be made under control of the CNIL and a judge.
So, no, we likely cannot forget all about Nixon.
