Microsoft is really getting into this Bing project and the company has made yet another smart decision regarding the search engine and its SafeSearch. Microsoft has officially announced on the Bing blog that explicit images and video content (they’re talking about porn) will be delivered from a new domain: explicit.bing.net. This decision will not affect end users, but it will allow your boss or your school to filter results no matter how the SafeSearch is set.
Microsoft is looking to deliver safe results for children, parents, school, and companies so that nothing unusual occurs. Thanks to the new domain, porn content will be blocked even if SafeSearch is off. Now it will be easier to filter content using Microsoft Bing for companies and schools. I must say that I was a bit skeptical about Bing, but now I realised that it’s a good search engine, and now that they’re better at filtering porn… it’s just great. Those who want porn still get it, and those who definitely don’t want porn will definitely not get it.
Oh, and Microsoft also has begun returning source URL information in the query string for photos and videos which means that companies will be able to track more porn content on Bing including the one they were already blocking.
