For sexually explicit content, our filter mainly relies on algorithms that look at many factors, including keywords, links, and images.
My image traffic has dropped significantly and turning on Google's image filter for "filter explicit results" removes at least half of the images from search.Only for .com atm, although other countries may do it. Personally, I think it is wrong for Google to try and block images.
I'd let my child look at my site, it has no foul or derogatory language either, at all.

Good news, folks: you can now contact the Image Search team directly if you believe your site is being incorrectly filtered by SafeSearch. You no longer have to use me as a middleman.
You can request that your site be reviewed for removal from the SafeSearch filter here:
If you wish to keep adult content on your site but to have the non-adult content unfiltered, please put the adult content in a separate directory or subdomain and tell us where it is in the "Tell us about this issue" field.

lame_wolf - That is the next step unfortunately. Im not sure how much luck i will have as i havent heard response from emails sent to the website owners.
And one is obviously a scraper so i doubt a one DMCA is going to get anything done.I have known hosting companies to remove a site completely, even though they only had one page on their site that violated my copyrights. Some will either remove the page/site, or get the owner to contact you, or in rare cases, the hosting company fails to respond (a problem I am presently having with a company right now)

Sgt Kickaxe - Do you think you have any algorithmic penalty on your site? E.g panda or penguin?
