Google’s New Personal Blocklist Extension Kills Search Engine Spam

By Lowell Heddings on February 14th, 2011

Tired of all the spammy, terrible articles listed in Google every time you do a search? You can finally kill them with a new Google Chrome extension by Google.

One can only hope that Google will then use this data to help improve their results, and remove these sites from the search engine in the first place. But until then, use this one. Note that the screenshot is showing the “Show blocked sites” view. Normally it would be gone.
