Google search algorithm adapted to show less porn for lesbian, teen and other searches

Google has apparently updated its search algorithm to show less pornographic content and search results for searches around lesbian, teenage, schoolgirl, and other related searches. Pandu Nayak of Google told The Next Web "We have taken action in cases where, when there is a reason to interpret the word in a non-pornographic way, that interpretation is brought forward."

This happened around the time frame of the gay pride month when a site owner did not see his site appear for that kind of terms and instead saw more adult-focused sites return. “We are aware that there are such problems, in many languages ​​and in various studies. We have developed algorithms to improve this research one after the other, "Nayak told Numerama." We have taken action in cases where there is a reason to interpret the word in a non-pornographic way that interpretation is brought forward "

The Next Web said: "Google's update to its search algorithm is a big step toward inclusiveness and representation for lesbians. Nayak, however, referred to how terms like" schoolgirl "and" teen "often yield pornographic results, but that Google reported this too. "

So I suspect this happened somewhere around June, maybe around the June core update or maybe nothing at all with that update – who knows.

I have not seen any complaints about this in June or July from sites of adults complaining on Black Hat forums, but to be honest, this is an area I don't follow much of.
