A month and a half ago, we reported on a Google Image Search update. It seems there was another update over the weekend.
A WebmasterWorld thread has Google Images guru zeus reporting on the update. He said now more and more images that were blocked in moderate search (default filter) is now showing up, and at the same time, the quality is still there.
It looks like we have once again gotten more images included under "safe search moderate" and I still dont see any bad images worth counting, so a good job done. Rankings seem the same.
One thing is for sure they try the last 6-12 Month to include more images to the search, also they got better in not excluding good images.
Thats it, Google image is on a good path the last few yearsand Google remember never change a wining team.
Of course, things do come up and we see it all the time where images that are adult in nature are showing in moderate or strict SafeSearch. But overall, Google is doing a pretty good job with image search.
