Google Users Must Be More Explicit to Find Porn

US Google users on the prowl for erotic images needed to be more explicit on Thursday after the search engine was tuned to avoid delivering porn in results for “ambiguous” queries such as “boobs.”

An adjustment to Google search rolled out in the country over several days simplified image search settings from three modes to two, with the default being one that is cautious about revealing adult content.

The change put image search in step with other Google query categories such as video or web and was intended to err on the conservative side if terms could be interpreted in more ways than the simply salacious.

Examples give by Google included “boobs,” a word used to refer to nincompoops as well as to women’s breasts.

The new Google image search default setting behaves similarly to the “moderate” setting most people had been using at the service, according to the California-based Internet giant.

Google image search settings outside the United States were not changed.
