Children Targeted For Easter Searches Leading To Porn Sites

The lowest of the low of Google spam, in my opinion, is when spammers target children with pornography. It is sick, selfish and outright immoral. I am sorry, I rarely get passionate when I write, but it is disgusting!

So when I see people reporting pornography in the Google forums, I get upset. But when I see the pornography is targeting kid-related searches, I get angry.

Let me give you an example. A search for [easter egg coloring page] in Google shows a set of coloring page images of easter eggs. Kids conduct these searches before the easter holiday so they can do some fun and religious coloring.

But if you click on some of the images, you are taken to a pornographic site!

Clicking on that image will take you to a site that has porn, nude women. Here is a censored picture:

Google is removing these Google spam attacks as quickly as they possibly can. But the spammers are keeping at it.

I honestly don't see how someone can rationalize targeting children religious searches and lead these unsuspecting searchers to porn sites. I don't understand where human morals have gone?

Anyway, it is sad and I wanted to share the darker side of Google search spam with some of you.

To report these, you can use this form or use the report images feature in image search.
