I want to block Yahoo Answers from Google searches. As there is no option from Google for that, are there any extensions for Chrome or add-ons for Firefox that can block sub-domain results from Google search?

You can use Google's Personal Blocklist extension for Chrome which allows you to block certain domains from showing up in Google Search results.

A solution for Firefox was missing on this thread, so I share my own solution.

I use mainly Firefox for browsing the web, and used to use the option in my google account to block unwanted search results, but since Google disabled this option, another solution was needed.

What I ended up using is this script for GreaseMonkey https://greasyfork.org/scripts/1682-google-hit-hider-by-domain-search-filter-block-sites

You first need to install the GreaseMonkey extension and then install the script. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/greasemonkey/

Once installed, you can easily add blocked sites to your list, clicking directly on a "Blocking" button which appears next to each google search result.

Hope this solution helps.

it's annoying to add a site, though. Copy the domain name → Firefox → Add-Ons → Optimize Google → Options → Filters → Paste domain name → Ok. I'd love something that puts a link on Google's search results page for each domain. – endolith Jul 28 '12 at 3:40

It seems like "This add-on has been removed by its author." – leiflundgren Jul 31 '13 at 22:26

Google does provide an option for that. (Although the feature is quite well hidden at the moment.) Log in with your Google account and go here: https://www.google.com/reviews/t

Note that this completely removes them from your search results, and you have to click at the bottom of the page to see them, while Optimize Google just make them really faint and small – endolith Jul 28 '12 at 3:45

Unfortunately, as of today (2013-03-15), this option has been disabled by google, hope they restore it in the future. – jhcaiced Mar 15 '13 at 22:14

I really don't understand what were they thinking disabling this feature. – user Nov 13 '13 at 16:48

For Firefox, there's Hide Unwanted Results of Google Search. Seems to work reasonably well - just right-click a link in the search results, and click hide, and it will hide all results from that domain (you can add a manual regex in the settings, instead, if that's more useful).
