---- EU Advisors Say Search Engines Must Cut Data Retention Time

From the article:
"a valid justification."
search engines must delete personal information "the moment they don't need it."
There are endless, entirely valid, justifcations for needing to keep user data for more than 6 months... So unless I'm misreading the article it doesn't sound like this will necessarily change anything at all.
