Google to ban explicit content

Google is changing its content policy on Blogger. In a statement posted online, the company writes that from March 23 this year, users “won’t be able to publicly share images and video that are sexually explicit or show graphic nudity.”

In the statement, Google adds that existing blogs that feature explicit material will be made private — so they won’t show up in public searches. It means private content will only be available to view by the owner, admins, or the people they share their pages with.

Overall, though, each blog is at Google’s discretion, and Blogger users have until the March 23 date to either mark their site as private, or remove the sexually explicit images and video that may be displayed. An alternative is to remove the blog altogether, Google notes.

To announce the news, Google sent out a letter to its bloggers who may be affected.

Then, Google banned sites hosting adult content from “monetising that content with ads” — so people couldn’t make money via the service for displaying anything explicit.
