Permanently block sites from Google search
Hi, IÃ¯Â¿Â½m Sharon Vaknin, and IÃ¯Â¿Â½m here to declare war on every single content farm.
ItÃ¯Â¿Â½s websites like lovetoknow, wisegeek, and articlesbase that trash Google search
results with unqualified content about every single topic there is.
TheyÃ¯Â¿Â½re called content farms.
Their Ã¯Â¿Â½articlesÃ¯Â¿Â½, come from freelancers or blatant copying
They top search results and make serious ad revenue from your clicks.
Google updated its algorithm to lower the ranking of content farms, but they still
HereÃ¯Â¿Â½s how to permanently block our enemies from Google search results.
ItÃ¯Â¿Â½s pretty easy.
First, youÃ¯Â¿Â½ll need Chrome 9, IE8 or Firefox 3.5 or later.
Then make sure
youÃ¯Â¿Â½re logged into your Google account.
Now, when you open a search result you donÃ¯Â¿Â½t like, hit the BACK button.
YouÃ¯Â¿Â½ll see a
new link under that search result, letting you block all results from that site.
Once you hit that link, you can Undo, or manage your blocked sites.
You can also
manually enter sites youÃ¯Â¿Â½d like to block, or undo previous blocks....click options in the
upper right of a Google search page, and select Ã¯Â¿Â½Search SettingsÃ¯Â¿Â½.
Thank you Google.
This feature was a long time coming.
If you want to block a website from just one search, use the minus operator.
Just type in
your search term, followed by Ã¯Â¿Â½minusÃ¯Â¿Â½ and then the website youÃ¯Â¿Â½d like to block.
Google is probably keeping an eye on sites that weÃ¯Â¿Â½re blocking, and until Google further
improves its algorithm, itÃ¯Â¿Â½s up to us to take down these content farms.
YouÃ¯Â¿Â½re either with us or against us.
For CNET.com, IÃ¯Â¿Â½m Sharon Vaknin and IÃ¯Â¿Â½ll see you on the interwebs.
