Finally, the grand daddy of search engines is to join the others in putting an end to smut. Google blocks child pornography sites among its search results (SERPs) and this block will go global soon. Eric Schmidt, the CEO of Google just said so in the first such statement to come from a high ranking executive of the giant conglomerate.

After Prime Minister David Cameron started the general effort to put an end to illegal pornography, Google has taken up the initiative too. All images related to child porn are to be blocked or removed from the search engine result pages of Google. While it is not an easy task nevertheless the work must be done in order to banish such extreme filth from the world. This sort of hard core pornography leads to crimes in real life. Hundreds of people have been arrested so far in cases of child sexual abuse. It is especially a travesty of justice when the very protectors of children such as physicians and educators turn out to be the abusers. 

Eric Schmidt, the CEO of Google just said so in the first such statement to come from a high ranking executive of the giant conglomerate. HE said, "We've fine tuned Google Search to prevent links to child sexual abuse material from appearing in our results. As important, we will soon roll out these changes in more than 150 languages, so the impact will be truly global," according to Daily Mail

Microsoft and Google have taken the lead by banning all images on the Net which cater to pedophiles. Besides removing images, there are channels open to the browsers to report any such hanky-panky. The pornographers have even been prosecuted based on evidence. The whole thing got of the ground thanks to David Cameron’s campaign. He challenged the big search engine companies to show the world if they had the moral courage to end this disgusting practice. And apparently such huge players like Google have complied. Human beings will be employed to use tact in separating pictures of children that are harmless from those that are pornographic.
