Google apparently doesn’t like boobs

Google Just Made It Harder to Find Boobs

Google has tweaked the SafeSearch filter so that porn doesn’t leak into image search results.  [source]

ZDNet reports that web surfers are “reacting angrily” because Google has modified its “SafeSearch” feature, making it more difficult to find explicit content in image search results.

For parents and those who’d rather not be frightened by results stemming from search queries like “cucumber” and “hotdog”, SafeSearch is a handy tool for toning down or completely blocking offending sexual and other questionable content. Typically it was easy to set: simply adjust the lever to “on”, “moderate” or “off”.

But now Google has revamped this system so that it’s much harder for bare breasts and other fleshy acts to jump into image search results. But even more, it’s harder for end-users to customize the filter itself. As it stands now, there’s only a single option to “filter explicit content” – whatever Google deems explicit will be removed from search results no matter the content.

Google has also added a SafeSearch lock so that parents and businesses can prevent children and employees from accidentally or purposely finding explicit images. However this lock only applies to the Google user who is logged in to their account, and not for others browsing Google images using their own login credentials.

“SafeSearch filters provide you with the ability to change your browser setting to prevent adult content from appearing in your search results,” Google states. “No filter is 100 percent accurate, but SafeSearch should help you avoid most of this type of material.”

Google users point out that the change came without warning: there was no official announcement, no update to the Google blogs. Web surfers looking for naughty content – those even with the SafeSearch option turned off – were taken by surprise, and took to Reddit to vent their frustrations. Meanwhile, ZDNet reports that the new filter in place resembles the Moderate setting of old rather than “a total overhaul to the system”.

“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,” a Google rep told CNET. “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.”

With that in mind, Google users can still search for anything they want with SafeSearch turned off, only now the search term needs to be appended with the word “porn” to pull up any raunchy results – or something similar.

Google Launches SEO Tool for Webmasters

If you believe your site’s rankings are being harmed by low-quality links that aren’t in your control (like someone is purposely adding you to link farms to fuck you), you can now ask Google not to take them into account when assessing your site.  It’s a new tool Google introduced today called Disavow Links from Google Webmaster Tools.

For awhile now several webmasters have been complaining that douche bag competitors have been adding their sites to link farms on purpose to hurt their SEO rankings.  Yet there wasn’t a damn thing any of us could do about it.  It really was a horrible, sneaky thing but it was a great way to fuck someone who you were trying to rank higher than.  The more penalties you could get them, the lower they would drop in the Google rankings.  Well today that changes.  Now if you find those bad links you can use their disavow tool to disassociate yourself from those “bad neighborhoods” as Google calls them.

Months ago BING introduced their own Diavow Links program in the Bing Webmaster Tools.  What you do is log and select the site of yours that you want to work with from their dashboard.  Now click Configure my site (from the left hand menu) and then Disavow links.    Next choose the page, directory, or domain, then type the URL that you want to block and then click Disavow.



How many people Google’d You Today?

Companies pay search engines like Google money to advertise every time people like me and you search for specific keywords.  The more people per month search a specific keyword or keyword phrase, the more money Google and other search engines can charge that company for that ad.

The interesting part of that whole dynamic is that is also gives us a unique insight into the popularity of your favorite porn stars.   Sites like Fame Registry use this data to help determine the overall popularity of your favorite stars.

So I decided to take a closer look today at the number of searches for some of your favorite stars.  Just curious really how many people really do Google them.  I grabbed some porn stars names which are some of the better known porn stars.   These are all stars we kn ow and love but which of them gets Googled the most?

  • Sunny Leone  – 5,000,000
  • Jesse Jane – 1,220,000
  • Jenna Jameson – 1,220,000
  • Bree Olson – 1,000,000
  • Jenna Haze – 673,000
  • Nikki Benz – 673,000
  • Riley Steele – 450,000
  • Gemma Massey – 246,000
  • Jessica Drake – 201,000

Sunny Leone has been heating up the search engines lately with all of her new found fame over in India.  Between her appearance on the reality show Big Brother, her being cast in I think 2 or maybe 3 mainstream movies over in Bollywood and not one but two different endorsement deals, including one for a cell company over there, you can see why she has so many fans searching their hearts out to find everything they can about her.

Much to my surprise Jesse Jane gets Google’d just as much as Jenna Jameson did … well at least last month.  I’m sure after the whole Jenna Jameson DUI thing her numbers next month will be much higher but at least for now she’s about on part with Jesse Jane.

Next we have the Goddess herself, Bree Olson.  Despite having been out of the media circus for awhile now, she still gets an impressive number of searches each day.

Jenna Haze who has recently dropped in the rankings over at Fame Registry but still ranks very high in overall popularity and is on par in searches with Nikki Benz who was last year’s Penthouse Pet of the Year.

Riley Steele comes in below them with an impressive 450,000 searches a month and below that is British porn sensation Gemma Massey.  Both of them are really the newest performers on the list.  While all the others have years of experience on them, these two young starlets are holding their own with the best of them.

And below all of them is Wicked Contract girl Jessica Drake.  Considering how long she has been with them I’ve very surprised at how low her numbers are.  She’s below Madelyn Marie (who has 301,000 searches last month) who hasn’t been in a single movie or adult promotional event in what … like two years now?  It’s nothing personal … just seems a little off to me.  I just don’t know why her numbers are so low.

So now you know how the top stars rank each month, at least in terms of how many times each day someone goes out there and Google’s them.  Jesse Jane coming in line with Jenna Jameson is a very impressive feat.  A huge congrats to her and all the other stars on the list!  They’ve all done an amazing job at keeping their fans busy wanting more and more of them, which is what gets them Google’d in the first place.




Google Me This … Facebook Me That

To a website owner there is nothing more valuable than that sweet ass search engine traffic.  It’s free and it is highly focused.  So if someone wants to find blue shoes with pink toe nails, they google that and find your site.  That is as specific as it gets.  If the site in question actually provides the end user with what they searched for then you can pretty much bet that traffic will convert at insane rates.

Website owners report that tube traffic converts for them at rates of 1:2500 to 1:30,000.  While search engine traffic converts to sales at rates as low as 1:25 and 1:300.  So what this means is, if a tube site sends you traffic you’ll make 1 sale for every 2500 to 30,000 people.  If a search engine sends you traffic you will make on average 1 sale for every 25 to 300 people.

So that is why so many people want that all to sexy search engine traffic.  So what is the most searched for word in the world?

According to an article posted on the site Factoidz [source], the most searched for word in the world isn’t sex related at all, like one might think.  Nope.  In fact it turns out the single most Google’d word is FACEBOOK!  2,060,000,000 a month, which works out to be about 25 billion times a year just in Google alone, people search the word Facebook.

Porn has a globally monthly search volume of 277,000,000, sex has a slightly higher search volume of 338,000,000 a month.  That means that each year on Google alone about 2.724.000.000 – that’s over 2 billion, almost 3 billion times a year someone search for the word porn and over 4 billion times a year (4,056,000,000) someone is out there searching for the word sex.



The Top 20 Most Google’d Porn Stars

There are a lot of ways to determine the popularity of a porn star.  Some say it should be based on how popular their website is, or how many movies they have been in or how many magazines they have been on the cover of or how many awards they have won.   I personally think that popularity is about the fans.  The more fans you have, the more popular you are.  That makes sense, right?  Well how do you figure out who has the most fans?  A site like Fame Registry helps us do just that.  Each month they produce a variety of reports, one of which tells us which porn stars are most active in terms of searches. So who are the most Google’d porn stars?  Lisa Ann of course!  But what is quite surprising is that Alexis Texas comes in second.  I knew she was rather popular but I didn’t realize that much.

Another big surprise, to me at least, is that new comer Capri Anderson out performers Tera Patrick.

  1. Lisa Ann with 17,072 searches
  2. Alexis Texas with 12,707 searches
  3. Jesse Jane with 12,578 searches
  4. Tori Black with 12,516 searches
  5. Jenna Haze with 11,785 searches
  6. Sasha Grey with 11,155 searches
  7. Eva Angelina with 11,023 searches
  8. Sara Jay with 10,607 searches
  9. Katie Morgan with 9,854 searches
  10. Bree Olson with 9,471 searches
  11. Audrey Bitoni with 9,431 searches
  12. Nikki Benz with 9,121 searches
  13. Shyla Stylez with 8,797 searches
  14. Capri Anderson with 8,414 searches
  15. Carmella Bing with 8,391 searches
  16. Tera Patrick with 8,338 searches
  17. Amy Reid with 8,319 searches
  18. Rachel Starr with 8,105 searches
  19. Kayden Kross with 7,906 searches
  20. Ashlynn Brooke with 7,864 searches


Ooops! Someone has been a naughty bird!

I was searching for a video today on YouTube when something caught my attention.  I clicked on the profile page for Bluebird Films and I noticed a nasty message from YouTube.

When I seen this message I thought I would take this opportunity to remind everyone that Google isn’t porn friendly like some people tend to think.  Sure, they may tolerate us with their search engine but that is only because we create them a crazy amount of cash because people love to search for porn but when it comes to other Google owned services they aren’t quite as open minded and that especially includes anything on their YouTube service.

They will ban stuff that isn’t even X rated.  In fact, I can recall several videos that showed not a single naked body but featured porn stars, although not naked so the movies can banned.  Why ban the video when not a single hint of nudity was shown?  Because sexuality was implied which means that basically any and all adult movie trailers are technically a violation of their terms of service and community standards.

But you know what bothers me?  How extremely biased they are.  Why are some videos allowed and yet others are not?  Here is a video on YouTube from PlayboyTV.  The video opens up with a girls bare ass, dancing around in a g-string.  Apparently that’s ok.  But showing a PG rated porno movie trailer, not so much.  I just don’t get it.  I really don’t.

Anywho the point of me making this post is just to remind all of you guys out there that Google isn’t quite as friendly to porn as some people would have you believe.  Yes they tolerate us when they have to but when it comes down to it, they don’t want our kind around.  So beware when using any Google owned service.  If you piss off the powers that be, it may just give you and all sites you are associated with in hot water.




Watch out Google, Bing really is catching up!

I can remember the day it was announced that Google had 40% of all US searches.  It was such a big deal, it was all anyone would talk about.  Of course quite a bit has changed since then and that includes the introduction of BING.   According to a recent story at CNET, Google now controls about 65% of all US web searches, with Bing coming in about 30% and Yahoo at about 15%.

So Google is more than twice as good as Bing and Bing is about twice as good as Yahoo.

Google, obviously the power house giant has actually been on a gradual decline.  In December of 2010 they controlled 69.7%, the next month they dropped to 68%, then in February 66.7% and now in March they are coming in at 64.4%.  Sure these aren’t major drops but possibly a sign of the big push Bing has been making to gain market share.  Bing is gaining market share faster than Google is losing it though.  While Google may drop a point here and there, Bing seems to be going up even faster.  Sucks to be Yahoo I guess.

Hitwise comes up with these numbers by monitoring the 10 million Internet users from the United States.


Some comment posting SEO secrets

Everyone loves free traffic to their website. I mean who wouldn’t, right? And everyone knows that the best free traffic you can get is from search engines. So then the question is, how exactly do you get your site to the top of the search engine to get all that free traffic?

Our friends over at Google tell us that “Webmasters can improve the rank of their sites by increasing the number of high-quality sites that link to their pages”.

Getting one site to link to your site is called an inbound link or in the SEO world, a backlink. In general terms, the more links from other sites to yours, the better. I can’t emphasize enough the importance of these links to your website.

So what do you do? Does that mean you should go out there and start trading text links with every website you can find? Of course not. In fact, Google tells us that not all links are equal. To Google quality is more important than quantity. Getting a few links from relevant, authoritative sites can greatly improve your site’s rankings, while dozens or even hundreds of links from other less authoritative sites can do almost nothing for you.

Google tells us that an authoritative site is one with “fresh, revolving content”. This means that the site is always adding new original material and revolving content is simply material that continually gets added and moved around on your site. Now keep in mind that’s the official answer from Google. In reality what the SEO experts have found is that a site with similar content and a high page rank is what you want.

So if you trade links with an adult site that has page rank of 1/10, that one link may not be as valuable as trading links with an adult themed site whose page rank is say 3 out of 10. Page ranks go from 1 to 10.

This site for example has a page rank of 4. The LukeisBack website has a page rank of 5. The website Adult DVD has a page rank of 4. Google’s home page is a PR8. Facebook is a PR10 site. If you aren’t sure you can easily get plugins for your web browser like the SEO toolbar for Firefox to help you find out.

Page rank is updated about twice a year. The more quality, relevant sites that link to you, the higher your page rank goes.

So you would think, oh page rank is what matters for search engine rankings then, no? No. Although it’s easy to make that mistake in thinking that, in reality the same data that determines your page rank (backlinks) helps you get better search engine rankings but one doesn’t have anything to do with the other. That is why a site with a PR1 or heck, even a PR0 site can get decent search engine rankings.

It can get confusing, I know but just keep this in mind. If I want to rank #1 in a search engine for my desired keyword, I need to get people who have a good listing already in that keyword and a good page rank to link from their site to mine.

So with all of that being said, how can you go about building some backlinks to your website?  Well one easy way is to find a blog or two or three that you like and start posting comments or replies to their posts.  Don’t be a spammy ass, just post a relevant reply making sure you link your site name and your page URL when making a reply so you get a backlink when making a comment post.

However I should mention not all blogs are created equal.  If a blog has a “no follow” tag – as most blogs do – comes default in wordpress even, then posting a comment is pointless.  the attribute (rel=”nofollow”) on hyperlinks, those links won’t get any credit when we rank websites in our search results.  To know if a blog is using the nofollow tag simply go to the page on their website with a comment already posted, view the page source, and click edit, find “nofollow” and if it is there, move on.  If it is not there, great – you just found a great resource for your website!

If you run a wordpress blog and want to take away the “no follow” tag for your comments then you should look for a plugin like – Wp-Dofollow. It can easily be found in the wordpress plugins directory.

What’s the BUZZ on the Google Class Action Lawsuit

Today gmail users were sent out a letter informing us that there has been a class action lawsuit filed against Google, specific to their BUZZ service introduced earlier this year.  Basically the lawsuit has to do with privacy and the interesting part says that everyone who has an active gmail account is included in the suit, unless they opt out.  Google has set aside $8.5 million.  So what does that mean for you?

NOTHING.  Why you ask? Well because the award figure is so extremely low that by the time you take out 25 to 40% for the lawyers, you have to divide up the rest between all the gmail users.   There are rumored to be between 26 and 51 million gmail users out there.  So when you divide up that $8.5 million between those 26 to 51 some odd million users, you get dick.

In fact, it will actually cost Google more to print and mail each of those checks than each person will actually be getting.

Google rarely contacts Gmail users via email, but we are making an exception to let you know that we’ve reached a settlement in a lawsuit regarding Google Buzz (, a service we launched within Gmail in February of this year.

Shortly after its launch, we heard from a number of people who were concerned about privacy. In addition, we were sued by a group of Buzz users and recently reached a settlement in this case.

The settlement acknowledges that we quickly changed the service to address users’ concerns. In addition, Google has committed $8.5 million to an independent fund, most of which will support organizations promoting privacy education and policy on the web. We will also do more to educate people about privacy controls specific to Buzz. The more people know about privacy online, the better their online experience will be.

Just to be clear, this is not a settlement in which people who use Gmail can file to receive compensation. Everyone in the U.S. who uses Gmail is included in the settlement, unless you personally decide to opt out before December 6, 2010. The Court will consider final approval of the agreement on January 31, 2011. This email is a summary of the settlement, and more detailed information and instructions approved by the court, including instructions about how to opt out, object, or comment, are available at

This mandatory announcement was sent to all Gmail users in the United States as part of a legal settlement and was authorized by the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.
