I don't think it has anything to do with Googles algorithm. Over the years, I've had various browser plugins to hide EE results from my searches. Various upgrades meant I had to find new plugins every 10 months or so.

Now it's easy for everyone. I hit the 'remove Experts Exchange from search results' button the first time I saw it.

I hope Google is using remove from search results as a signal in their ranking. I think it's a fair way to weight.

I hope Google looks at "remove from search results" but I hope they don't allow that button to remove the results from the official ranking. That's easier to game than PageRank was.
