Google Policies

Google has created a single page where you can find all of the Google Search content policies. This includes Google Search's overall content policies, search feature policies and feature specific policies. You can find them all in this one document here.

Here is an overview of these policies but if you want to read each one, go to the above document:

Overall content policies for Google Search:

  • Child sexual abuse imagery or exploitation material
  • Highly personal information

I learned this news from John Mueller's news update video at the 6:56 mark where he said "we recently launched a shared location for all content policies around search. This should make it easier for you to find any specific policy that you're looking for."
