Kiddle: Has Google launched a search engine for kids?


- Sponsored Content -

I was just surfing the internet yesterday and was going through various search engines for SEO of some of the various websites and domains I own. And, here I find a search engine named as Kiddle (www.kiddle.co) and I was really surprised with interface of the Kiddle Search engine – Its a replica of Google Search Engine

Check the website here!

Later, on further exploring that it was a Search Engine for Kids (as the name suggests :P) but very frankly I was not able to identify it.

Here are some of the main features of Kiddle:

There have been several reports in the media regarding Kiddle, a new, visual search engine that has been described as “Google for kids”. Indeed, its logo and search box look a lot like Google, and it uses Google’s Safesearch technology in tandem with results handpicked by its editors.

But aside from that, it has nothing to do with Google, although a glance at the homepage makes it pretty easy to see how confusion would arise. To put it charitably, the site’s owners haven’t exactly gone out of their way to set the two apart, although Kiddle does have its own robot mascot and uses larger, child-friendly fonts.

Also, unlike Google, when you enter a naughty word – just use your imagination! – It tells you off in no uncertain terms and asks you to try again. We’re sure that savvier kids will soon manage to fox it in their search for unsuitable web content, so Kiddle certainly isn’t a replacement for proper parental controls such as those offered by ISPs, but its intentions are undoubtedly good and it should prove useful for younger children. We’ll be reviewing the site in our Best New Websites section next issue.
