I googled some random keywords and gave me results like this:

I don't want Planetlagu

I know that planetlagu.site is either a song download site or a Youtube download site. They offer MP3, MP4, and 3GP but all of them are unwanted because they contain a lot of junk.

I also receive a lot of unwanted Wikipedia results (image) and a lot of results from Facebook (image) which also contains information I don't want.

How can I exclude Facebook, Wikipedia, MP3, MP4, and 3GP pages from a Google Search so that they don't show up in the search results?

You can use search operators to remove phrases or sites. For example, to have search results display without the word MP4 in the results, use the search phrase -MP4.

To exclude a site such as facebook, use the search phrase -site:facebook.com.

A combination of these can help to narrow your search results based on what you need.

Exclude words from your search

Put - in front of a word you want to leave out. For example, jaguar speed -car

Search for an exact match

Put a word or phrase inside quotes. For example, "tallest building".

Search for wildcards or unknown words

Put a * in your word or phrase where you want to leave a placeholder. For example, "largest * in the world".

Combine searches

Put "OR" between each search query. For example, marathon OR race.

Search for a specific site

Put "site:" in front of a site or domain. For example, site:youtube.com or site:.gov.

    @pnuts I couldn't find a question on webapps that actually answers the question. If the google-search tag is enough, would this topic be closed? Thanks for your help.

  • For googling in Google Images Search here's a tip: If I don't want some unrelated and offensive keywords to be appeared on Google Image Search, I had just to negate them. So in many case I had to add -ular -pati -selena -bieber to any keyword I entered (I often saw that those keywords sometimes appear on when I looked for some girl's photo using Google Image Search).
