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.
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.
