The KidzSearch Story

My name is Eric Thomas. I am a computer programmer and the founder of KidzSearch.com. A few years ago my sister, who is not very technical, asked me to setup her computer so it would be safe for her 10-year-old nephew. I did what many schools use today and installed website blocking software that did not allow any user generated site content to be viewed. I felt like I did a great job and told my sister that she had a safe computer for her son.

The next day I received a phone call from my sister. Instead of thanking me, she was complaining all over the place about how she and her son were completely frustrated by not being able to access useful learning blog sites, or important educational videos. She said that only a very small amount of the web was available and that I ruined her computer. I tried to explain that this was how computers were kept safe, but agreed to look for a better solution.

After experimenting with different approaches, I discovered that Google had a little-known, but wonderful adult filter based on content and not a general blocking policy. It allowed all the important learning content, like educational videos and teaching blog sites, but screened out harmful adult sites. The only trade-off was that it was what some might call pg-13. Another issue was that my sister was not technical enough to always make sure Google had the proper settings each and every time it was used. I came up with a very simple interface to guarantee it would always be on and gave the site an easy to remember name – KidzSearch.com. I also added additional keyword filtering to fill in some of the pg-13 gaps that Google still allowed.Roblox HackBigo Live Beans HackYUGIOH DUEL LINKS HACKPokemon Duel HackRoblox HackPixel Gun 3d HackGrowtopia HackClash Royale Hackmy cafe recipes stories hackMobile Legends HackMobile Strike Hack

My sister was thrilled when she used it and had access to all the important educational content she expected with none of the bad stuff. She did not have to learn how to manage a computer network and only needed to bookmark the site. It worked on any computer she used with nothing to setup. It was also free, which suited her budget!

Over time my sister told her friends about it and I started to see more people using it. A few teachers used it in school too, and then entire school districts were using it. I added requested features, like safe image and video searching, and a special autocomplete with search terms students often use. More things were added later, like being able to customize how it looks, and even a homework help section. I’m proud to say that KidzSearch.com is now one of the leading school search engines. Explore KidzSearch today and you will see that there is a better way.
