Block Sites from Google’s Web Search Results

Couple of days ago I wrote about how search results are becoming worse every time. This is because of all the spam around there that makes really difficult to show relevant results. The post also mentioned that human intervention is needed since sometimes an algorithm is not enough to filter real sources from spam.

It seems that Google heard that because today they released a new Chrome extension which allows users to block sites from Google's web search results. The extension is really easy to use and the information collected from the users will be sent back to Google for further analysis and might help them improving their results and gives quality search results.

The extension allows you to block and unblock sites and also edit your blocked site list by just pressing the extension icon. This is an experimental extension but it is really worth a try. We can help improving search results and stop spam and content farms.
