Google allows you to block sites from your search

Block all example results to appear soon
Search outfit Google is coming up with a feature that will allow you to block sites that you do not want seen in your search results.

Google‘s Search Quality Engineer Beverly Yang said that "Block all example.com results." link will start appearing below Google Search results beginning today. If you clicking on that link, it will add example.com to your blocked sites list, which you can of course undo immediately or unblock in the "Manage Blocked Sites" link found below the search results.

The idea is to remove sites that users find offensive or spam. But the danger is that Google is also thinking of using this data as a signal in ranking websites in search results.

The feature will be available to all English users by tomorrow.
