Search Terms Google Instant doesn’t want you to see

Google Instant is Google’s search enhancement that shows results as you type. Before Instant, when you’d type a prurient term such as ‘nipples’, you’d be shielded by the final ‘Press Enter to search’ before Google would give up its nipply bounty of links and images.  But with Instant, those results show up right away.  So Google in all their wisdom, has seen fit just to blacklist that word, along with terms you’d expect, such as ‘penis’, ‘vagina’, and ‘smut’.  But what’s unexpected is some of the other terms Google has decided to blacklist in its diligent struggle to shield the public from naughtyness. Hacker magazine 2600 has been tracking these blacklisted words.

(N.B. You still can find these search results if you ‘Press Enter to search’, but they’re conspicuously absent using Google Instant)

Try these for yourself. Go to Google.com and make sure ‘Instant is on':

Adult

Amateur

The porn market has pretty much ruined the term, it seems.

Babes in Toyland

Or any ‘babes’ for that matter

Bareback

Ball Kicking

So much for football and soccer.

To be honest, they were kinda asking for it.

Cream Pie

Escort

Fantasies

Get my sister

Huh?

Google is Evil

or anything ‘is evil’, for that matter

Hairy

Hate or ‘I Hate’

How to kill, How to murder

Way to support racial tolerance, Google

Leather Straight Jacket

Lesbian

Way to support social tolerance, Google

C’mon, Goog, it’s an article of clothing!

Lovers

So much for romance.

Mature

Meats

Naughty

New Pornographers

Like Barenaked Ladies, this Canadian band really had it coming.

(author of ‘Blade Runner’ and ‘Total Recall’). Oddly enough, ‘Philip K Dick’ is fine, until you add a space afterwards.

Poof

More a commentary on our society than Google, unfortunately.

Suck or Sucks

Swastika
