InfoSpace Offers Kid Search at Zoo.com

Posted on November 22, 2006

Zoo InfoSpace has launched a new kid-focused search engine called Zoo. The site filters content from Google, Yahoo, Wikipedia and major news hubs like ABC News and Yahoo News. Zoo's site explains they are not a perfect filter.
Here at Zoo, we do our best to filter out sexually explicit web search results. We do not comprehensively filter any other content. Since all filters are not perfect, we ask for your help in telling us if you find any sexually explicit or mature material while searching at Zoo. Our goal is to continually improve the site, so we encourage your feedback´┐Ż this is your site.
Without limiting a kid search engine to only kid-friendly websites it is going to be difficult to filter everything that is inappropriate. Filtering ads isn't the only problem kid search sites face -- ResearchBuzz is also concerned about the way the advertisements are displayed on the search engine.
