Search Engine Blacklist Removes Sites From Google Search

Google Chrome only extension Search Engine Blacklist can remove selected sites from Google's search result listing. The extension is especially useful for users who often stumble upon the same set of spam or irrelevant websites when using Google's search engine.

Do not want to see Wikipedia, ehow, About or other sites in the results all the time? All you need to do is to blacklist them so that they will never show up again in Google.

The extension can be configured directly from the search results or from the extension options.

blacklist sites

The extension can only blacklist domains, not individual pages. It will automatically blackist the domain name with and without www. in front. Other subdomains need to be added individually as there is no option to use wildcards to block all pages from a domain directly.

blacklisted domains

Domains that have been added can be removed only from the options again. The extension hides search results that point to blacklisted domains which means that the search results will be shorter than usual. It may make sense to increase the number of results to avoid pages with only a few or even no results at all.

Search Engine Blacklist is available for direct installation at the Google Chrome Extensions repository.
