BoodiGo Encouraging Submissions by Adult Entertainment Efforts of All Kinds

BOSTON – When BoodiGo co-founder Colin Rowntree looks out over the horizon of the online adult entertainment industry, he sees a fundamental contradiction in play: On the one hand, the public appears to be more accepting of pornography than ever before, but on the other, many mainstream web outlets seem to be going out of their way to marginalize online porn, censor links to it from their platforms, or otherwise hold online porn at arm’s length.

“We’re seeing more and more proactive removal of explicit materials from social media platforms, even if the material isn’t visible directly on the platform itself,” Rowntree says. “You can be a porn star and be on Facebook, sure; but effectively, you can only be a porn star on Facebook if you don’t really discuss the fact that you’re a porn star.”

In light of the less ‘porn-tolerant’ atmosphere growing among mainstream traditional and social media outlets, Rowntree says it’s all the more important that adult websites and companies of all kinds submit their URLs and domains to BoodiGo, where they will be given proper emphasis.

“In some ways, the initial focus on BoodiGo has been on the things we don’t want people finding in our search responses,” Rowntree said, referring to BoodiGo’s efforts to block and redirect searches commonly used to find child porn, pirated content and other illicit material. “But as an adult search engine, naturally our goal is to help people find what they’re looking for from the world of adult entertainment, and people can really help us help them, and help the consumer, by proactively submitting their URLs to us.”

It’s not just porn websites that Rowntree hopes to draw submissions from either; he hopes to receive submissions from all sectors of the industry, covering a wide variety of site types and approaches to the market.

“We want to hear from adult blogs, toy stores, people with adult tumblrs, porn star home pages, porn review sites, video-on-demand sites, authors and publishers of erotic ebooks, adult twitter feeds, adult tradeshows, adult industry media outlets – you name it,” Rowntree says. “Naturally, our anti-piracy policy and other content policies will apply, but if it’s legal and legitimate porn, it has a home – and an ally – in BoodiGo.com.”

Seeking Privacy as Much as Porn, Web Surfers are Flocking to New Search Engine BoodiGo.com

BOSTON – When BoodiGo.com co-founder Colin Rowntree first conceived of launching an adult entertainment-specific search engine that emphasizes user privacy, he certainly expected it to find an audience – just not quite such an enormous audience, perhaps.

“Within hours of making our first announcement, we realized we were going to have to devote additional servers to BoodiGo in order to support the amount of traffic and searches we were seeing,” Rowntree said. “The consumer response was just amazing and outpaced even our most enthusiastic projections.”

Spurred on largely by positive media coverage – BoodiGo hasn’t spent a dime on traffic or advertising to date – the new search engine took off quickly. BetaBeat.com termed it “a new search engine just for porn, for when Google just isn’t sexy enough.” BoodiGo’s proactive efforts to offer surf-safe and legitimate search results led Cosmo.com to note the search engine “let’s you find porn without giving you a computer virus.”

While it’s no secret that porn has long been a consistent draw for web users, the primary driving force behind consumer interest in BoodiGo is the privacy factor, with surfers in droves jumping on the opportunity to use a search engine that doesn’t track their every online move in furtherance of profile-building and ad-targeting. As Salon.com put it, BoodiGo “might be the best new way to find porn without selling users’ fantasies to advertisers.”

In the days immediately following its launch, BoodiGo received over 2.5 million unique visitors, a surprising percentage of which accessed and read the site’s privacy policy, in addition to trying out the search function.

“I’ve been running adult websites since 1994, and I’ve never seen anything like this sort of interest in a privacy policy,” Rowntree said. “I think it says a lot about what really appeals to people about BoodiGo; it’s not just a good way to find online porn, it’s a good way to find online porn without having to look over your digital shoulder, so to speak.”

 

For Rowntree, that appeal comes as no surprise, as it fits into a larger cultural concern about privacy, both online and offline.

 

“One of the things that inspired the creation of BoodiGo was an explosion of news stories that revealed just how frequently and intensely we are monitored as Internet users,” Rowntree said. “The NSA and other federal government surveillance gets the headlines, but if you think about it, private sector tracking of users is the thing that’s truly ubiquitous. I think there’s a new level of awareness among the public that Big Brother might not be the government; Big Brother just might be a bunch of suit-wearing VPs sitting in a boardroom.”
