X Googlers dive into porn with Boodigo, a new search engine


Porn. Porn. Porn. We just can’t seem to get enough of it. By 2015, mobile adult content and services are expected to reach $2.8 billion per year, mobile adult subscriptions will reach nearly $1 billion, and mobile adult video consumption on tablets will triple. Not to mention 1.6 billion searches for pornography since the start of 2014. What’s next you say? Why the need for a better porn search engine and that’s exactly what several former Google employees have set out to do with their new brand new experiment: BoodiGo.

Boodigo made its official debut back on September 15 and according to one of its founders, porn producer and director Colin Rowntree, it has “taken off like a rocket.” Boodigo was formed by Rowntree and tech company 0x7a69. So what is so great about BoodiGo, you ask? After all, you’ve got a ton of porn search engines on the Web today. Redtube, xvideos, xhamster, pornhub, it’s endless. Why does the Web need another porn search engine?

According to Rowntree, “Google and Bing have gradually been weeding out the industry’s adult content and that (for us) has been tremendously frustrating. If someone is looking for videos of oral sex and tries to find them via Google, what they get is an article by Wikipedia and advice from Cosmopolitan. And when they get what they’re looking for it can well be pirated material.”

Boodigo is organized with a double process of verification, which in the first place associates key words of the search with content, and secondly checks to see that the content belongs to trustworthy sites and not to pirate sites with fraudulent and malicious intentions, the Boodigo founder said. Additionally, Boodigo safeguards the user’s privacy by disabling the use of cookies or other tracking mechanisms that obtain information about Internet users.

The search engine was also designed to guard the user’s anonymity. Besides its commitment to turning up un-pirated, non-virus-infected search results, Boodigo also promises users it won’t harvest any of their personal data to sell to advertisers.

Boodigo is a partnership between porn company Wasteland (NSFW) and west coast tech firm 0x7a69. Five of the west coast programmers, Mr. Rowntree said, are “refugees from Google” who were “not liking the way things were going.”

Now go try Boodigo and let me know if you’re happy with the quality of the search results.
