What safe searchers aren't seeing

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

Using a clever subtraction algorithm, Google UnSafe Search (via Dori) shows you which pages on any site don't show up for visitors who are using Google SafeSearch, which tries to avoid coarse language, violence, pornography, and the like. There is a similar service for Yahoo!

Here are my results from Google. SafeSearch seems to exclude such crude words as "crap," "prizemaster," "top ten search engines," "greed and poverty," "confusing road sign," and possibly "long-hair hippie stuff." Interestingly, Yahoo! considers all the material on this website to be inoffensive.
