Google has created a single page where you can find all of Google’s content policies. This includes general Google search content policies, search feature policies, and feature-specific policies. You can find them all this one document here.

Here’s an overview of these policies, but if you’d like to read them all, go to the document above:

Google Search General Content Policies:

  • Images or material of child sexual abuse
  • Very personal information
  • Spam
  • Requests from webmaster and site owner
  • Existing legal requests

Search feature policies:

  • Advertisements
  • Dangerous content
  • Fraudulent practices
  • Disruptive content
  • Hateful content
  • Managed media
  • Medical content
  • Regulated goods
  • Sexual content
  • Terrorist content
  • Violence and Gore
  • Vulgar language and swear words

Feature-specific policies:

  • Autocomplete

  • Google will find
  • Google News

I got this news from John Mueller’s news update video 6:56 mark where he said “we recently introduced shared location for all content policies related to search policy. This should make it easier to find the specific policy you’re looking for.”
