That was fast! Google won’t be banning “explicit” adult blogs afterall

Just early this week, Google announced that it was going to clamp down on adult bloggers on its blogger platform but that decision has now been rescinded. Apparently this was going to affect their huge blogger base. The decision by itself would have put many bloggers out of business.

You can read it as seen in the Goolge Products forum below

Hello everyone,

This week, we announced a change to Blogger’s porn policy. We’ve had a ton of feedback, in particular about the introduction of a retroactive change (some people have had accounts for 10+ years), but also about the negative impact on individuals who post sexually explicit content to express their identities. So rather than implement this change, we’ve decided to step up enforcement around our existing policy prohibiting commercial porn.

Blog owners should continue to mark any blogs containing sexually explicit content as “adult” so that they can be placed behind an “adult content” warning page.

Bloggers whose content is consistent with this and other policies do not need to make any changes to their blogs.

Thank you for your continued feedback.

The Blogger Team
