Is it possible with Google searches to ban any and all results from a domain?

The site experts-exchange is very annoying. How can I block it from my Google results? Alternatively, how can I block it in Firefox, so that if I click on a link to it, I instantly see that it's blocked? That way, I won't be annoyed by it after I see the page load and scroll down to see answers being blocked off >_>

Tip of the day: Scroll all the way to the bottom of their pages to see the unhidden answers...

Don't they track this, though? Just when you're starting to feel slightly benevolent towards them and you've visited the site x number of times they hide the answers again and ask you to register. –  Andy Oct 7 '09 at 6:35

This doesn't always work, I've seen cases where the bottom part is missing. However if you switch user agent to googlebot it always works (or at least it did so far). –  T. Kaltnekar Oct 7 '09 at 6:49

Now apply some Adblock (or userstyles, or Greasemonkey) and you won't even need to scroll down. –  grawity Oct 7 '09 at 11:40

or maybe block from firefox so if i click it i instantly see that its blocked

  1. Open c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts in Notepad
  2. Add the following line:

    127.0.0.1 www.experts-exchange.com

When a user browses to www.experts-exchange.com in any browser, they will be referred to the localhost's ip address and should get a blank page.

Why the negative vote on this question? –  GregD Oct 7 '09 at 19:40

Question references removing the result from the search, not blocking access to the domain in question. –  Greg Buehler Oct 7 '09 at 19:44

I guess as it doesn't keep the results from appearing in Google? It does block it from Firefox though, which indeed was the author's alternative question: maybe block from firefox so if i click it i instantly see that its blocked. –  Arjan Oct 7 '09 at 19:45

If you clicked on the Google Cached answer for EE, it MUST contain the actual answers (but at the bottom of the page).

The CustomizeGoogle Firefox extension allows, among other things, to filter websites from the search results. It's one of the things I miss the most about FF.

When typing in your search specify "-experts-exchange".

good, but not practical to type all the time –  hasenj Oct 7 '09 at 6:52

You can use this Greasemonkey script to block it from Google search results. Greasemonkey is an add-on for Firefox which you can grab here.
