Google UnSafe Search

As you probably know, "Google's SafeSearch screens for sites that contain explicit sexual content and deletes them from your search results". There are three levels of filtering: none, moderate (enabled by default) and strict filtering and you can change this in preferences.

Google UnSafe Search uses Google to find the sites filtered by Google. You just have to enter a query, and you'll see the missing sites from a SafeSearch.

  1. I dont see why Google filtered out this link. The whole thread is abt RAM price and specs. This is one result was listed in Google UnSafeSearch.

  2. Why the need for a blog post on google unsafe seach, everyone must know about it unless they don't read under the search box after a search.

  3. Hey, unsafe search is not a Google feature. Google only has normal search and safe search.

    Unsafe search = Normal search - Safe search

    I agree that Safe search is not perfect (far from it).

  4. I'm not sure what the relation is, but I'm fairly sure that Monzy (a current PhD student at Stanford) came up with this first, unless this has been around for a few years.

  5. I have no idea who had this idea first, but the site I linked to looks at the top 100 results (and not the top 30) and shows the results much faster.
