Google has added a new section to the video’s best practice guidelines SafeSearch and adult content. The document was updated on June 3 after the document was extensively updated last March.

The document added sections to optimize video content for SafeSearch, Google’s adult filter. Google wrote, “SafeSearch is a Google Account setting that determines whether explicit images, videos, and websites are displayed or blocked in Google’s search results. Help Google understand the nature of your videos so that they can apply SafeSearch settings to your videos, if appropriate.”

Google recommends that you group adult videos with the same URL structure as any .com / adult / filename. Google said, “If your site contains adult videos, we recommend that you group the videos separately from other videos on your website. For example: http // www.example.com/adult/video.mp4.”

Google also said that you need to add metadata to adult pages in order to report the content of that page as an age restriction or an RTA (adult only) meta tag. Google said its “algorithms use different signals to decide whether videos or the entire page should be filtered from results when a user’s SafeSearch filter is on. In the case of videos, some of these signals are generated through machine learning, but SafeSearch algorithms also look at simpler things like the video was used in the past, and the context in which the video was used. “

One of the strongest signals is self-tagged adult pages. If you publish adult content, Google recommends that you add one of the following meta tags to your pages:

So if you’re making adult video content, keep this in mind.
