Tools to Find Family-Friendly Content

The Internet is magnificent in its resources for families. Educational resources abound. Kids can easily find help for their homework blues without venturing to the library. Kids can chat with friends from far away for free; friends who, probably just a few years ago, they would never hear from again. And, of course, there's plenty of entertainment to satisfy the whole family once the chores and homework are complete.

However, the Internet can often be an inappropriate place for kids to surf unsupervised. Plenty of content is only appropriate for mature audiences. And, sadly, there are 'bad seeds', those who the children never should talk to.

Help keep your children away from these unsuitable materials. Many search engines and directories have filters and options that only return pages that have passed a particular profanity or "kid-safe" filter. These types of filters vary from web site to web site, but may do one of the following:

* Only allow you to search a selection of links picked by the site's editors to be "kid-safe" or free of profanity.

* Not show links containing profane words, these being words designated by a site to be profane. This list may not contain all possible profane words or combinations.

* Show links containing profane words but block out the profane words with asterisks, dollar signs, or other symbols. Again, the blocked-out words are those the site deems profane and might not include all such words.

Unfortunately, no filter can be 100% accurate.

Here are some search engines that have filters you can enable to try to weed out inappropriate content.


Above and to the right of the search query box you can find the link labeled "Family Filter". Turn on this filter to cause AltaVista to filter out inappropriate content. Be sure to read the linked-to FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) before using this filter. Again, no family filter is 100% accurate, but it's better than nothing.

Ask Jeeves For Kids

You can provide kids with their very own search butler. Ask Jeeves for Kids is a special version of the popular Ask Jeeves web site geared towards the younger set. It is used the same way as the normal Ask Jeeves - just ask a question and click the "Ask" button.

You will notice the site design is quite different from the main Ask Jeeves. The page is colorful and includes fonts more suited for kids. There are links to games, study tools, news resources, and message boards. Be sure to check out Jeeves' hat as you move your mouse over each resource :)

According to the "Parents" page, Ask Jeeves For Kids only searches for "G-Rated" information. However, they do warn that since web sites change, there is no guarantee that adult content cannot slip through the cracks. Still, they do a good job at trying to filter out information, so if you have children surfing the net, you may want to point them over to this popular resource.


Visit the "Advanced Search" link and take a look at the "SafeSearch" section. Click the "Filter using SafeSearch" radio button to cause Google to only returns sites that match Google's "SafeSearch" filter. This filter attempts to remove material containing pornography or sexual content, but it is not and cannot be 100% accurate. Click the link "SafeSearch" on this page for more information about this filter.

You can also click the "Preferences" link from the front page to set preferences on how you want Google to search through documents. From here you can enable the "SafeSearch" setting by default. These preferences are placed in the form of a cookie stored on your browser, so if you disable cookies your preference choices will not stick. Be sure to press the "Save Preferences" button when you are done with your choices or they will not stick.


Click on the "Parental Controls" link on the front page (located under the search bar), or turn on the "Adult Filter" from the advanced search page to enable the "Lycos SearchGuard". This feature attempts to filter out sites containing inappropriate or offensive material such as "adult, violent, hate and weapons-related content". Note that while no filter can be 100% effective this is a good start.

You may also want to visit the following family and kid-friendly Lycos sites:

Lycos Zone (For Kids)

No matter which site you use, realize that no filter can be 100% accurate. All it takes is a little web browser knowledge to defeat cookie-based filters. Inappropriate sites can and sometimes will "slip through the cracks". Thus, I recommend that you always supervise your kids' Internet usage whenever possible. These filters, however, may make your supervision easier and your entire family's Internet experience more enjoyable without any surprises.

Content Managed Website - I was recently approached by a small business owner who wanted to find ways to maintain his web site but felt the cost of a content management system, even a small scale solution, was too high to justify. He recognized that his web site is an important part of his business and also recognized that he and his small group of non-technical employees didn't have the expertise to manage their web site themselves.

Content Writing Companies - Content is king for one reason: People surf for content. Each of the major search engines is only successful to the extent that it helps people find the web site content they are looking for. Whichever search engine helps people find that web site content the quickest becomes the most popular. The more popular the search engine is, the more money it makes from advertising.

Rss Resources Article - You've either heard about RSS Feeds in site design or marketing forums lately or you've seen little RSS or XML buttons popping up on web sites everywhere. Click on one of those web site buttons and you'll end up with a page full of code that looks a lot like html.

Rss Feeds Help - So why should anyone use RSS Feeds? After all, how can rss feeds help with your online business? Here's five powerful reasons why any online business owner should consider using rss feeds in their marketing efforts.

Google News - Content is what Search Engine robots look for when they decide how high to rank a web site for certain keywords. Let's define what we mean by content. To a search engine, content includes words, sentences, and paragraphs that are FULL of the keywords that you want to be found for. Please understand that all graphics are totally ignored by the search engines.

Syndicated Content - Everyone is concerned about, or should be, their site growing and changing over time. Search engines need to see updates to keep you ranked well. It is an ongoing battle to add new pages of good content you can rely on to keep your visitors clicking, joining, and buying.

Reciprocal Linking - Reciprocal linking is one of the most popular and (probably) effective ways to increase your PageRank. And although I have questions whether or not your PageRank actually means anything, that's another article for another day. The idea is that the more sites on the web that point to your site, the more important your site must be.

Mobile Content Providers - Everyone wants to make money on the web and so as you. This you can make only if you have a web presence and bring customers to your web site and turn leads into sales. Your search engine ranking is the key to the amount of visitors, and the success of your web site, finally.

Rss Equalizer - If you do not what PHP is or have little knowledge or PHP or programming then I would recommend that you use RSS Equalizer which takes care of the complicated stuff for you. RSS Equalizer produces HTML format pages that it has transformed from the RSS feeds it is using as its source.
