Blocked Blacklisted Sites from Google Search

The Chrome extension to block sites from Google has been deleted from the web-store (surprise surprise, Google owns Chrome, so they obv. don’t want anyone touching Google-search)

This article has alternatives – Remove Google results, block list 

https://www.pcguide.com/tips/personal-blocklist/

I am starting a list of blocked websites/ domains from Google search.

  • forbes.com
    • When linking directly to an article page – there is a blank landing page, then the user needs to click through to the actual page – then on load, a huge explanatory banner pops up covering the article… If I’m going to read or share articles, I want to see the article immediately… If Forbes ever fixes this, tag me/ tell me in the comments below and I’ll remove this filter… ~ There are so many news sources – ain’t nobody got time for that ~
    • Website is blocked if you have adblock
  • upworthy.com
    • Congratulations on becoming a huge website in a short amount of time, but if that means pushing subscription pop-ups on me every time I visit your page – I don’t want a part of it. Click the YouTube logo in the corner of the video and send me that link, not the UpWorthy landing page.
  • lyricsmania.com
    • Upon loading the site, a popup asks you to like/ share on social media.. But I know nothing about how good your site is, and I’d rather block it from search results and share the website on this list than share on social media…
  • zdnet.com
    • after reading a bit, a gigantic splash screen appears ~ just what I always wanted  ~
  • wpmudev.org
    • Massive splash screen after 5 seconds
  • attitude.co.uk
    • This website blocks users who use Add-Block
  • bloomberg.com

  • websiteplanet.com
    • Online tools – but comes up with spam splash screens – there are better websites out there
  • youtubnow.com
    • Download youtube videos – 1080p doesn’t work
  • wsj.com
    • Content is blocked unless you pay them
