Right now, you'll see only three results. We'll look at refreshing, but in answer to #2, we're also looking at putting this more directly into Google's search results.

I think having block options directly on Google's search results is the right long-term answer. But this extension lets people clean up their personal results while sending block data to Google that we might be able to use as a signal to improve overall search quality.

Thanks to everyone at HN who poked us by asking for this, by the way.

Don't worry about refreshing -- I'd much rather see three good results than 7 bad ones. The idea of being able to block content farms entirely is literally making me giggle at my desk. Focus on that!

Thank you, thank you, thank you x1000 for this.


I've been using it for a few weeks while we tested it, and it really does feel nice to block a site that you never want to see again. :)


After integrating this feature into Google search, a nice enhancement would be to allow sharing of people's personal exclusion list. Let the community help clean search!


That's the first step in establishing a community curated subscription service. That's how AdBlock works and it works great.
