pearl necklace on womanYesterday, at Search Engine Land, I covered how the search for the term [pearl necklace] on Google would return an inappropriate and mostly irrelevant search result in the top positions.

Someone searching for [pearl necklace] now is probably looking to buy someone a holiday present. They are probably not looking for the sexual definition of pearl necklace. But that is what came up in the number one and two position at Google yesterday morning.

Here is a screen shot:

Pearl Necklace Google

I immediately emailed Google when I posted the story asking why this happened, especially after the Santorum fix with the SafeSearch update that should have prevented this. Google has not responded to me.

But the search result from urbandictionary.com is no longer found on the first page for [pearl necklace].

Did Google manually remove it? I don't know. But it no longer shows up after the story was posted.
