    Porn Results In Non-Porn Keyword Searches

    I was checking up my ranking on some keywords that I'm targetting in google, and I started looking for "skateboarding clips".

    http://www.google.ca/search?q=skateb...e+Search&meta=

    I noticed lots of the results are titled "Live Skateboarding Clips".
    I clicked on one and I was suddenly hit with some porn pop-ups, and redirected to a porn site. I never once saw anything about skateboarding.

    There are about 30 more of these pages mixed in with a few real skateboarding sites before I find my site listed on the 6th page. Even if I don't get my ranking improved, I would like to see these results removed or dropped from the top ranks.

    Is there anything I can do about this?

    Edit - Made a more relevant title.

    Send Google spam reports.

    This type of thing happened all the time on engines like AV before Google came around.

    I just sent one. Am I going to have to do it for each bad result that comes up, or will they likely pick up on the others on their own?

    It took Google a week or two to react, but most of the porn results are gone now, and I've moved up to the first page of results.
