Q:

What is an unfiltered image search engine?

A:

An unfiltered image search engine may display images without filtering results for objectionable or illegal content. It may also refer to an image search engine that does not attempt to profile the user and alter search results based on that profile.

Some search engines have a safe search feature that automatically attempts to filter out potentially objectionable results from image searches. However, even if the safe search feature is voluntarily disabled, the search engine may still automatically screen out illegal and very disturbing content, such as child pornography and executions. Google and other search engines also build an automated profile of users and filter results based on what they think the user wants to see. A completely unfiltered search engine may not do these things.

  • Q:

    What is the difference between a search engine and a directory?

    A:

    A search engine is a computer-driven tool that helps people find information and specific websites online, and a directory is a list of websites that is compiled by a person with a specific goal in mind. The main difference between the two is that search engines produce results in response to a user input query, such as what one might enter into Google's search bar, while a directory is organized by a human and doesn't typically accept input from the user. One analogy that can be used to understand the difference between the two is comparing search engines to phone books, which contains all the contact information for a specific area, and directories to someone's personal address book, which only contains contact information that has been personally compiled.
