Google uses a system to automatically submit and store a certain URL in their search engine database, all URLs are submitted to google without any official approval from google... :D

I think google has no restrictions whether a URL contains a eewww site, or a rated x site. Google's job is just to search the world wide web, without any particular info to be restricted in the search. That is what Google made of, it's purpose is to to search, search and search, we can do nothing about it... :D

If you have questions regarding their policies, why not ask google? Blue_PDT_01_18
