Is there a way to tell Bing that I never want results from a certain domain?
I add -site:blockeddomain.com after my search items.

In this example I have added my current ignore list. To make it easy for day-to-day use, I use a text expander to enter all the domains that annoy me. In my text expander I make all instances of "---" show up as "-site:ehow.com -site:experts-exchange.com -site:ebay.com -site:dotnetspark.com -site:go4sharepoint.com -site:wikihow.com -site:howstuffworks.com". I use the text expanding feature of AutoHotkey as I already use that program for several other automation tasks.
This works for Bing and Google. I used just -blockeddomain.com for Google successfully, but multiple domains this way broke Bing. Whereas with the -site: both search engines seem to behave appropriately.
It is not perfect, but it saves me time. Google used to let you block pages on a blacklist, but discontinued that service. We need to remember that in the search world, we are the product and
Or in Chrome modify your default search settings. Example: after the arrow insert
%20-site:ehow.com to always append
-site:ehow.com to your searches.
To hide results of any kind just use the — (minus, dash, etc.) operator.
New York -yankees
The above will display results for 'New York' but exclude the 'yankees' keyword.
Disney Characters -disney.go.com
The above will display results for 'Disney Characters' while also removing results that have the 'disney.go.com' domain name.
You can change your default search engine. It's easy to do this on any browser by relying on Mycroft's search engine form: http://mycroftproject.com/submitos.html
Find the search engine you want to modify on Mycroft (preferably for search the website URL).
Find the one you want to use in the results (probably under category "Major Engines") and hover its name to view an ID.
Fill in this ID in the form at the URL above and click "Load".
Modify this form how you see fit (probably by adding
+-site:bing.comwith the plus representing a space in URLs). You may need to change the name so that it doesn't conflict with already installed engines.
Click "Generate Plugin" and then "Test Plugin". Clicking "Test Plugin" will call the function
window.external.AddSearchProvideroff of a URL that generates your search plugin so you can install it. There is no need to click "Submit Plugin".
I've also recreated the form on jsfiddle with as few changes as possible. However it still relies on up to two GET requests from Mycroft. The benefit of this version is that it includes templates for Bing and Google so you can easily modify these without finding their ID: https://jsfiddle.net/dvd2fh8n/
