    Does google care about cuss words in posts? My forums are chalk full of cursing and i'm just wondering if I should filter the cursing out for google's bots.

    If there is a lot of bad language on your pages, then your site will end up being categoriesed as PRN site. This is going to stop people from the corporate environment from accessing the site from the network also.

    The corporate environment is sometimes so strict that it really doesn't matter what you do. I used to work for an american company in Denmark, and I could not go to the danish version of Google which is Google.dk. I had to use Google.com if I wanted to search the internet... How bizar :rolleyes:

    Cursing and slang are not often used for Keywords either so if there's no grammatically and spelling-wise correct english (or whatever language) on your site then you won't be found either.

    unless of course one is targeting young kids trying to learn new cuss-words by searching on the net... :p (hrmmm... having two small kids of my own I actually find that idea slightly scary)

    Tell those fargin icehole corksuckers to watch Johnny Dangerously and learn how to cuss from the master - Roman Maroni.

    Seriously TGO, Google has a SafeSearch filter on by default, so your site runs a risk of being invisible even if indexed and ranked on a given term.

    I installed a script to filter the posting of such words. Helps keep the content clean and helps keep your pages more visible to engines. It is not too hard to do yourself, let me know if you need help, I can PM you some simple Perl code to do the trick.

    Cheers.

    Here is a simple block of code (Perl) that will allow you to check for certain words in your variable before you save/post it....

    if($post =~ /(crap)|(badword)|(anotherbadword)|(you)|(get)|(the)|(point)/){
    # Your logic to either warn or not post the message... #
    }

    Note: The parenthesis around the words are required
