Porn Word Salad as MTA Search Result on Google

Porn Word Salad as MTA Search Result on Google

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) in New York had a bit of a “porn” problem recently. And by a problem, a rather hilarious situation. As of Monday, July 27, 2020, when people googled “ossining metro north station,” they received a rather unexpected search listing:

Ossining – Flirtatious Anal Dildo For Cock Hungry Blonde Slut

Beyond being quite a word salad of sex-themed words, it didn’t exactly help searchers looking for the metro, either. According to The Verge, it’s really a problem with Google.

From The Verge: “Apparently the issue is with a file called robots.txt that tells search engine crawlers which pages or files the crawler can or can’t request from your site. When a page uses robots.txt to prohibit certain content from appearing in its search results…Google may still list the page and form a title for it from other sources that link to it.”

The MTA site wasn’t hacked and no one in their web development department fell asleep on the job. The Google algorithm inadvertently came up with that title to the amusement of a few reporters and searchers. As of Tuesday, July 28, 2020, the search result no longer appears, sadly. But thanks to the internet, we can all collectively wonder what a “flirtatious anal dildo” does for a “cock hungry blonde slut.”
