One Week Later: Nudity Still In Google's Search Results

Over a week ago, a searcher complained in the Google Web Search Help forums that when you search for [juvo] in Google, the images that show in the web results have an image that is of three women who are completely nude.

Here is a censored picture:

JUVO Nudity In Google

Now, Google knew about this for over a week and I said, I'll just wait to see how long it takes for Google to remove it. It has been over a week and it is still there.

A Googler said in the thread over a week ago:

Thanks for the report! As you might have noticed, when you use the "Report offensive images" tool in Google Images, the images you've reported on the page will have a translucent white overlay. When you repeat the search, this layer may be gone, but we will have recorded your report. Later on, the images you report will be reviewed by Google and will be used to improve our SafeSearch algorithms.

I can't guarantee when these specific images will be removed, but I did want to let you know that we aren't just automatically denying your reports. Hope this helps!

I have SafeSearch on, why would Google say they cannot guarantee the specific images wouldn't be removed? Why? It is not in compliance with SafeSearch.

Anyway, I am a bit sad it has been over a week since Google has known about it and it is still there. Thus, I blog it.
