Obviously, there is a huge level of background search activity for sexual content on the internet.
But it's weird that Funny or Die is the No.1 Google result for "sex" searches (click to enlarge image). It is not a porn site. The company earned that placement in Google because its content management system generates a "sex" section for incoming search requests from Google.
And Funny or Die has an auto-generated "gang rape" page, on which it serves ads for major brands like Kraft and TBS:
Funny or Die
The content on those pages isn't necessarily about sex, either.
Funny Or Die COO Mitch Galbraith told DigiDay that the company isn't creating these pages on purpose:
“It’s not a strategy to optimize for those terms; those pages are created automatically ... The content itself is clean content; it’s just a function of the fundamental SEO our site does.”
