I spend a lot of time searching for resources about PHP. As the search narrows and the results get fewer, I begin to get a lot of noise from pages unrelated to my research, simply appearing there because they end with ".php".

If I do


it works, but also hides the pages that are relevant but end in .php

How do I search Google and ignore as relevant to my search, but not remove those entries containing ".php" from the results?

Thank you so much. Works perfectly. I know I'm late in flagging this as answered but for some reason I did not get a notification(or rather, I must have missed it). Also, thanks for the edits to my question. It really needed them. – Xananax Dec 13 '11 at 7:02
