    An undocumented feature of Google which E2BN use on their web filters is "Very Safe Search" - I believe the querystring for that is &safe=vss - apparently that works pretty well on image searches.

    Oddly I now can't find the google page that you copy and paste the html from, but this is from my website, hope it helps!

    <tr><td colspan=4 width="737"> <center><!-- Google SafeSearch -->
    <center>
    <FORM method=GET action="http://www.google.com/search">
    <input type=hidden name=ie value=UTF-8>
    <input type=hidden name=oe value=UTF-8>
    <TABLE bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><tr><td>
    <A HREF="http://www.google.com/search?safe=vss" target="_blank" >
    <IMG SRC="http://www.google.com/logos/Google_Safe.gif"
    border="0" ALT="Google" width="115" height="45" align="absmiddle"></A>
    <INPUT TYPE=text name=q size=25 maxlength=255 value="">
    <INPUT type=hidden name=safe value=strict>
    <INPUT type=submit name=sa value="Google Search">
    </td></tr></TABLE>
    </FORM>
    </center>
    <!-- Google SafeSearch -->
    </td></tr>

    Appending "&safe=vss" to search results works nice, but as per my original post, i still know of no easy/cheap way of appending this to users' searches.

    Heres a link to my website with safe search on

    http://www.oakwoodjuniorschool.co.uk/linkshelp.html

    There is a google page somewhere that gives you the html to put it on your own website but can't find it now.

    Ahaa, http://www.google.com/search?safe=vss

    Seems to work well. Next step would be to block the page that lets you change it, and redirect Google to the above URL. Shall have a crack at that today hopefully. Thanks!

    I have just set up an automatic forwarding rule in ISA 2004 that says whenever they try and go to:

    images.google.co.uk/advanced_image_search
    images.google.com/advanced_image_search
    images.google.com/preferences
    Preferences
    Google Advanced Image Search
    Preferences

    they get redirected to:

    Google

    Which I think is the default google homepage (this is the same rule I use to stop them getting to iGoogle to (which, handily, I found on this forum too!))

    Cheers.

    Just found this thread, must have missed it before. Perfect, does exactly what I want, saves me having to look stuff up in the SquidGuard manual!

    ...Drat, actually it seems to do exactly what I want recursively - any Google image search URL gets rewritten to include a safe=images on the end, then gets rewritten again and again and again until the server gives up and reports an error. Anyone know how to stop SquidGuard doing this?

    Okay, sorted - I just removed the "ir" at the end. I'm guessing "r" stands for "recursive"...

    Sorry to wake up an old thread.

    We want Safe Search enforced in our environment. We are on a 2003 AD Environment with no roaming profiles. We are also utilizing Websense for our web filtering. A few questions:

    1. What are the steps to retrieve the cookie once you have enabled safe search?
    2. Where do I have to place this cookie? Default User profile on a clean machine?
    3. Can the appending be done with our Websense? Our network admin says no but I would have to think that it would be possible.
    4. Can any of this be done with Group Policy?

    Thanks!

    When you say no roaming profiles... what do you use?

    Mandatory?

    Since this thread was created, we now lock strict safe search usuing a google account within the mandatory profile. It cannot then be changed.
