I stay logged into Google. I would very much like to permanently blacklist sites that I know to be SPAMmy or low quality from showing up in some of the modules like news and search. Any suggestions on how? I know how to do it case by case in search (-site:lame.example.com) but that's not permanent.

EDIT: The solution presented below does in fact work for search (thanks!) but not for news - anyone?

If you use Chrome you can use Personal Blocklist (by Google).

Description

Blocks domains/hosts from appearing in your Google search results.

The personal blocklist extension will transmit to Google the patterns that you choose to block.

This use to be a standard feature on Google that they depreciated. Instead they created this extension.

This works with Google search, I have not tested the news module. –  Geditdk Mar 25 at 17:57

It doesn't work for News but it does work for search. –  Ram Mar 25 at 18:04

Maybe use Adblocker, then remove all the preset blacklists, then manually blocking those websites/span ID's?

Thanks. I do adblock but that doesn't affect the list of results that G shows for searches nor in news etc. –  Ram Mar 25 at 17:57
