Google makes it harder to find porn, updates their image search algorithm

Google update their image search algorithm, have now made it harder to find porn
| Internet & Websites News | Posted: Dec 14, 2012 9:31 am

Teenage boys across the world have just let out a collective sigh after Mountain View-based search giant Google updated their image search algorithm which now makes it much harder to find pornographic images through Google.




Even with SafeSearch disabled, the new algorithm puts up a brick wall, and Google have said that they are not censoring any adult content, but there should be some people that would disagree with that right now.


A Google spokesperson has said that they are just trying to show the explicit images to those who are intentionally searching for them instead of a minor stumbling across something they shouldn't. The algorithms Google are using try to work out which images are best to display for the search query a user enters, so that if someone is on the hunt for adult images, they might have to be more specific with their search.


So you should be a bit safer typing "pussy cats" into Google, now. Meow.
