Google tweaks image search algorithm to make porn harder to find

It’s become sort of joke that it doesn’t matter what you search for with Google image search, there’s going to be porn in there. Cute puppies, cute babies, flower arrangements… it doesn’t matter, there’s going to be dicks and vaginas. Recently, Google revised their image search image algorithm to reduce the incidences of accidentally finding porn.

Here’s how a Google representative explains the change:

“We are not censoring any adult content, and want to show users exactly what they are looking for — but we aim not to show sexually-explicit results unless a user is specifically searching for them. We use algorithms to select the most relevant results for a given query. If you’re looking for adult content, you can find it without having to change the default setting — you just may need to be more explicit in your query if your search terms are potentially ambiguous. The image search settings now work the same way as in Web search.”

In other words, if you have SafeSearch turned off, you can still probably find anything you’re looking for by appending the word “porn” to your search.
