Google’s Kiddle: A New Search Engine for Children

If we look back, we can reminisce those early school days where we used to go to the library in order to get book report or discover different ideas for our next science project.

Google’s Kiddle: A New Search Engine for Children

But now kids will be able to use their own version of Google while using search engine called Kiddle. Kiddle is not an official product of Google, but the company uses a customized Google search for kids to surf the internet safely. Presenting Google’s infamous colors in its logo, Kiddle conduits the plain white background found on the famous search engine’s homepage, and instead features an outer space theme, complete with planets off in the distance.

Kiddle, the visual search engine for kids that is powered by editors and Google safe search, enables kids to do a Web, images, news or video search. As soon as a child types a question into the search bar, Kiddle will pull up a list of associated links. The first one to three results involves safe sites and pages that are written specially for kids that are exclusive and checked by the editors. The next four to seven results will feature sites that include content that is written in simple language so that young children are able to understand what they are researching. Results eight and onward present sites written for adults that are still filtered by Google safe search but are little difficult for children to follow.

“Since Kiddle results are either handpicked and checked by our editors or filtered by Google safe search, you know you get kid-oriented results without any explicit content. In case some bad words are present in a search query, our guard robot will block the search.”

The About Kiddle page reads.

Parents can also block other keywords by acquiescing a form, and may also request to block a site they feel is not appropriate for children.
