Porn Continues to Invade Google Web Search Through Universal Search

Jun 24, 2008 - 7:14 am 14 by

I continue to report porn on Google over here, at Search Engine Land, via email to Googlers, via Twitter and Plurk and so on. But it seems that this is a battle Google is not winning. Why is this such an issue, because if a kid searches on his or her new bathroom, he or she may see this result:

More Google Porn

I blocked out parts of the image for obvious reasons. But this is an issue that I see prop up time and time again, since Google began adding images to search results.

But now Google has added a "report images" link, it looks like this:

More Google Porn

So I clicked it and was shown this:

More Google Porn

I clicked "Confirm" and was offered a thank you:

More Google Porn

It is nice to see Google adding that method of reporting offensive images but it might be a bit too late now?
