Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
I've been unable to find anything even mildly porongraphic and my emails to google/adsense remain unanswered.
Any one else had a similar problem or solution?
1-Go to google, set your preferences to "no filtering" and do a search for Satan.
Now set your preferences to "strict" and do the same search. See anything different? This is the adult thing.
Now enter keywords relevant for your page and see if ads are displayed or not.
2- Now this is what I'd do, if I were in your shoes: Go to the google weblog [google.blogspace.com], and look for the "Try Before You Sell" section. Enter your url's and preview what ads AdSense would likely show.
If it's charity stuff, either you're uncrawled or you have problems. If it shows relevant ads, then wait for the adsense team to contact you.
But I'm not seeing a connection between gardening and unsuitable for children. *shrug* Think synonyms, maybe?
Any racy flower names? I know sometimes the namers try and get really creative, though it's a stretch to think they'd come up with something that would get you banned...
Here's one thought: do a Google site search with and without filtering for a word that appears on every page in your site. If you find a difference in the results, check the missing pages for content that Google might misinterpret as adult.
Would be nice to hear from Google on this one.
Accepting or rejecting applicants, detecting fraud, and identifying "adult" content are three examples of processes that require human intervention if only to avoid errors.
Of course, humans aren't perfect, either. Anyone who's ever studied the MPAA's movie ratings might conclude that the ratings wouldn't be any less accurate if they were determined by computer. :-)
If you find sites that contain offensive content in your results, even with SafeSearch activated, please send an email with the site's URL to email@example.com and we will investigate it.
If your website appears to be filtered by SafeSearch and you do not believe that it should be, please write to the same address as well.
I would suggest you try to diagnose this yourself first:
Run the Sim Spider [searchengineworld.com] through your site and look at the words. Look for anything that can be misconstrued.
Also, keep this in mind:
Google's filter... checks keywords and phrases, URLs and Open Directory categories.
Well I did get a reply back from Google and they where very specific about a couple of videos that I had for sale. They're advertised on regular TV, but I can see Google's point of view about them being adult content.
Just out of curiosity, did the titles of the videos contain a word like "s*x"? Something must have triggered that "adult content" detector.
but im still perplexed how "girls gone wild" can be part of a house and garden site, apart from maybe describing a spinster's working bee weekend weeding and cleaning up the wilds of the backyard so they can plant some fruit, flowers and vegetables.
