Google A change to anything related to Google Search - the product so many of us rely on - is never going to go by unnotoced. This time around, Google has altered Image Search for US users to alter the way it handles that ever so important aspect of the web - adult content.

Let's not play semantic games. When Google purposely hides search results which would have otherwise shown up, it has the same effect.

That's why the Chinese government forced Google to hide results for topics such as Taiwan's independence and 1989's Tiananmen Square massacre.

That's a bit different though. Those results where not available at all to people in the affected areas.
The only change Google has done now is that you have to be more specific when you want to find porn. Lets face it, if you use Google to search for porn you know how to do this and you're probably doing it already.
