Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is there a way to permanently block sites from showing in Google search results?

By permanently I mean that I don't want to exclude websites manually in every search.

When I search for some web development questions, I like to see results from Stackoverflow and some other websites, but I hate to get results from OSDir and other websites that just duplicate SO content on their side (which btw I think is ridiculous).

Any idea?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Did you do any searching yourself to find an answer? –  Dave Feb 28 '14 at 14:19
@DaveRook He did, but those sites were blocked from being in the results.. –  Raystafarian Feb 28 '14 at 14:22
@DaveRook No. I don't know how to use a search engine. Hence my question. Do you think I should delete my question? –  MrUpsidown Feb 28 '14 at 14:26
@DaveRook I am really sorry that you are having such a bad day. I hope tomorrow will be a better day. –  MrUpsidown Feb 28 '14 at 15:35

You can use a plugin

This is for Chrome https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/personal-blocklist-by-goo/nolijncfnkgaikbjbdaogikpmpbdcdef?hl=en

And for FireFox https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/hide-unwanted-results-of-go/ (thank you to @Nikolay for posting it in the comments of this post)

@Nikolay Thanks, I'll give it a try! –  MrUpsidown Feb 28 '14 at 14:47

You could also build a Google Custom Search Engine, which allows you to limit your search to certain sites, prioritize select sites over other sites, &/or exclude certain sites from your search results.
