The latest Google Search update – version 70 – is now rolling out for Android users. As part of this update, Google has implemented new features that will help you fight against online harassment, bullying, and swathes of other hate speech.
For years, Google has used a series of ranking signals to help us find what we want online. Those signals are the algorithmic and human editors who determine what kind of content we see. But now, Google is taking a major step in protecting its users from online harassment, by employing a list of “trusted” websites who are immune to the algorithm.

- Developers at Google have revealed that they are working on a new technology called Multitask Unified Model (MUM).
- The company removes malicious sites from search results and downgrades these low-quality sites.
- The plan is designed to protect users who are victims of persistent harassment when they post sensitive personal content.
- There’s still a long way to go before the feature is harassment-free, but Google is working to prevent it.
As the world’s leading search engine, Google Search is constantly getting new updates and security measures, and it also changes its design from time to time. This is not surprising, given the large number of users who return to the service year after year. Last month, developers announced that they were working on a new technology, called Multitask Unified Model (MUM), that would allow even more complex searches to be answered.
Malicious websites are removed from Google searches
In Google’s current search engine, users have to manually report websites that publish content about them without their permission and charge for their removal. Google then investigates the details of the person involved in this harassment and removes the page from its search results and lowers the overall ranking of this website. Under the new plan, Google will further improve this process by not only going after the malicious site, but also by downgrading similar low-quality sites that still appear in search results. This initiative is designed to protect users who are constantly harassed by the publication of unflattering information about them, which is published without their consent.
There is still much room for improvement in Google search
As we can all imagine, Search’s improvement process is never finished, and the company says it will continually improve the experience based on feedback and the ever-changing landscape. Over the years, our approach to the Search project has remained unchanged: We take examples of searches where we fail to provide high quality results and look for ways to improve our algorithms. Therefore, we do not solve individual searches, as they are often a symptom of a whole class of problems affecting many different searches. Our problem-solving ability continues to lead the industry. Over the past two decades, we have introduced advanced technologies, tools and quality signals that improve research work every day. Malicious third parties will always find new ways to exploit or harm users’ image. It is therefore only right that the major web browsing companies take appropriate action. At the same time, we all need to be careful with the personal information we provide because it can be used against us at some point. Have you ever been in a situation like this?
