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

I'm a programmer and I use Google a lot. There are lots of websites with solutions for problems, but I prefer StackOverflow.

Is there a way I can get StackOverflow higher in my Google search results?

Assuming you're logged in to your Google account, the +1 button next to a search result is a signal to Google that that site/result is more important to you and should come up higher in your results in the future.

Personally, I would just use the site: operator to limit results to Stack Overflow to see if it can be found there first.

foo site:stackoverflow.com

Of course, that will also pick up results from Meta Stack Overflow, so you'll probably want to add -site:meta.stackoverflow.com to your search.

And then, of course, you could always create a Custom Search Engine that contains only Stack Overflow and the other few sites you really find helpful.

Urgh. They must have recently removed them. That's on me for not keeping up with changes. –  Al E. Mar 6 '13 at 15:07
