Google executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, has announced that the company will be taking concrete steps to rids itself of search results related to underage sexual abuse. It seems Google hired a team of 200 to find a solution and their work has already removed over 100,000 potential queries.

These improvements are thus forth limited to the English only versions however you can expect these changes to roll-out to the other Google supported languages in the coming 6 months (aka 158 languages if you were keeping tabs).

I think Google deserves a pat on the back for its efforts to curb child abuse related search queries and I hope this is the start of many more such improvements to protect the next generation.
