For about a year ago you could wait up to 3-6 Month if you have made some changes to your site to get more images listed under "Moderate search", last week I made a test with a website, which have been online for a long time, but no biggie. On the site there where a few bad comments to some images, the site lost a lot of images in Moderate search, went down to 91 from about 500.

Now i removed those comments and waited for only about 7-10 days and all images where back in moderate search, thats a VERY good improvement to the filter, still some images are lost in filter which should be shown, but I think thats ok a Images search algo is almost as if a blind person have to filter the images in good or bad, they cant see the images.

A thing I also like is when a image is removed from a site, its also gone on the search engine sometime after.

We have heard about the testing of a new image search in Malaysia where a full page of the source is not shown only a link, it seems it will not spread around which is a DAMN GOOD THING be cause it would hurt a lot of websites and there owners.

Thank you, zeus, for your regular updates about Google Image Search. What you may have discovered here makes a lot of sense, when you think about it. Safe Search would have to be about more than just the visuals on the page.

Yes they are still the no. 1 image search engine, specially the last 1-2 years after they have let more pictures pass the filter, before it just blocked to many and users went to other SE for images.

About the case in Malaysia, as said I have not seen it spread and thats of cause a good thing.

thanks for the comment.

Thanks about another notice , I saw in my website images index a bit change , a few weeks ago.

It's good to see that GI going faster with updating but I still think it's no major update , it's more looks like pre-updating .

And yes , thanks a lot on tips with "Moderate search" , I'll try it .
