Analyzer of the SafeSearch Quality
SafeSearch is a filter that is supposed to block the «adult only» websites from appearing in the search results. Nowadays most search engines allow their users to filter the results in this way. But does SafeSearch do its job well enough?
This analyzer collects search results for ambiguous queries which may be interpreted as targeting a certain category of pornography, but also admit other interpretations. The question is whether SafeSearch effectively filters out the adult responses in such cases.
The set of queries in this analyzer is the same as in the analyzer of the presence of adult sites in search results. We submit these queries to the search engines with the SafeSearch option turned on wherever possible. In this case, the ideal results should not contain any adult pages at all, as well as no results with obscene words. If the adult pages still show up in the search results, the search engine is not keeping its promise to protect the user with SafeSearch.
We make use of the Semantic Mirror
technology developped at 'Ashmanov and Partners' in order to detect pornography. For every search engine, we calculate the percentage of pages with adult content among the top 10 results.
