I can’t tell you how many times I have been searching for something and I find an excellent search result in Google only to find that on the site I have to pay to see the answer. Frustrating! And, Experts Exchange is one of the main culprits.
Just recently, I have seen a number of blog posts pointing to the Personal Block List extension. Here is a list of articles written:
- Google rolls out Chrome extension that lets you block sites from search results
- Searching on Google just got a lot safer…
- Block Domains from Google’s Search Results
Only one of those articles mentions Experts Exchange, but I thought was funny that one of the reviews said, “Awesome. I have been wanting to block experts-exchange.com for soooo long.
Thank you devs.” I am sure there are a number of other sites that are similar.
I did notice, too, that Google will know about what you choose to block: “The personal blocklist extension will transmit to Google the patterns that you choose to block.” I wonder if there is or will be a way to see that from Google Analytics?
Anyway, Happy Blocking…
