Google Search 4 Kids is about creating a fun and safe search platform and website. Our target audience is k-12 for use in the classroom, libraries and home. The site can be used as an interactive site and web portal. All of our out bound links are screened using various technologies and community feedback.
Kids Safe Searh
Our safe search system uses multiple layers of filter controls to screen queries and results to block inappropriate content.
Kids Safe Video
The video sections pulls entertaining and educational videos from sources like YouTube for replay on our websites but without the unfiltered comments.
Our staff has asked the community and educators for the best type of online games and appropriately categorized them based on age and genre.
The core of this website is the Kids Friendly Search Engine, which utilizes the Google Safe Search API. Google manages these search results. We have chosen to utilize Google's search engine technology because of their expertise and breadth of query results. We are examining other possible candidates and in house databases for the future designs, but for now nothing tops www.Google search results.
Google's Safe Search however is not without its caveats. Their system does nothing to prohibit profanity and inappropriate search terms. We have integrated systems with the aid of partners, such as Surf Cop to first screen and block search terms before they are ever have a chance to make to the search query.
We can not guarantee that every search result or video file will be free from profanity or third party links that lead to other websites that are inappropriate. There are measures however one can take, part of our team is also part of Junior Surfer, a web browser that also shares the same goals as Kid's Search and it has the ability to properly filter and safeguard Internet browsing once one leaves the googlesearch4kids.com .
