There was a post yesterday on Full As A Goog (sorry I cannot remember the URL - the Full As A Goog "Search" functionality seems to search the visible page only) with a video that had information about internet porn. It stated that there were literally hundred of millions of porn sites current on the internet. That's a lot of porn.
Recently, I talked about how the second most popular incoming search phrase for my site, Kinky Solutions, from Google was "Huge Ass." At first, I was just amused that my site came up with Huge Ass right along side real porn sites like "Ass Traffic", "Big Tits, Round Asses," and "Big Booty Sites Galore." But, now, after having pondered it for a while I am just confused. With hundreds of millions of porn sites, why does my site have any visibility on Google when it comes to "Huge Ass?" In fact, why are 8 out of the top 10 results NOT porn sites? What the heck is going on here?
There can only be two reasons for this poor visibibiliy:
- Google simply won't index porn sites.
- Porn sites have just about the most horrible search engine optimization you can ever imagine.
Number 1 clearly is not true, as the top 2 Google results for "Huge Ass" are, in fact, genuine porn sites. Therefore, I must jump to the conclusion that porn sites have the worst search engine optimization in history. I guess it's like the age old mentality that you don't have to sell drugs - drugs sell themselves. Except in this case, it's porn - you don't have to make the quality web sites that showcase it, cause the porn itself is enough???? Or something like that... I mean, what else could it possibly be?
And yes, my "Safe Search" is turned off for all Google searches.
Maybe the fault is not that of the porn site web masters, but rather that of porn itself. If content plays very heavily into the Google search rankings, my guess is that porn sites simply cannot contain enough "valid" content as a consequence of the fact that their main products are pictures and videos, not indexable text. But, there's got to be a way to marry these two ideas together. There's just too much money at stake for this not to be happening - or maybe that's also part of the problem - there's so much money being made already that no one really cares of these sorts of details.
Food for thought indeed!
