Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is there a way to block specific sites from appearing in Google search? I'm looking for a browser add-on (preferably Google Chrome) - I don't want to create custom search engines or what-not.


This question was a Super User Question of the Week.

I can't tell if you're kidding or not.

Personal Blocklist does exactly what you need, and it was released yesterday.

The personal blocklist extension will transmit to Google the patterns that you choose to block. When you choose to block or unblock a pattern, the extension will also transmit to Google the URL of the web page on which the blocked or unblocked search results are displayed. You agree that Google may freely use this information to improve our products and services.

It's 3:21am. This whole question feels very surreal. And I'm typing on an iPhone screen which isn't helping! –  user3463 Feb 15 '11 at 10:22

ooo just what the doctor ordered. I would say he's not joking, as I seem to land on a LOT of "content farms" recently myself and have wondered the same. –  WernerCD Feb 15 '11 at 14:02

In the daylight it makes sense. Sorry for the confusion. –  user3463 Feb 15 '11 at 20:06
