How to Take Useless Websites Out of Your Sight

The great thing about Google is that they are now keener in recognizing spam websites from search result pages. However, there are still useless websites that manage to bypass through the filters of Google. There’s something you can do about it. You could prevent the not-so-useful sites from appearing in your search result page.

Make use of the Google search with Global Filter by following these steps.

  • Making a global filter requires you to use Google’s Custom Search. It could be used in all browsers even in your mobile phone. The Google’s Custom Search allows you to search for a smaller batch of sites. You don’t need the entire Internet to search for you want. There’s a little trick here. A reverse configuration can be done. It could get Google’s CSE to search the Internet disregarding the websites you think are a waste of time.
  • You have one option. Let’s say you have blocked websites with the use of the Blocklist add-on provided by Google. Simply click the Blocklist button found in the tool bar of your Google Chrome. Next thing you need to do is to click the “Export” button so you can download all the sites you’ve listed that you’ve blocked.
  • You can also create your own Custom Search Engine. Type the name and description of what you are searching for. Include the sites to search as well as all the commonly used TLDs. For example, say the name you are looking for is Pink Roses. The description should entail that it’s a Google Search excluding useless websites. The sites to search may include TLDs like .com, .net, .org or .co.uk.
  • Once you’re done typing, click on the Next button. This guarantees that you’ve saved all the changes. Test the CSE you have created. Click on the Next button again. This time, click on the “Include more sites” button. This is the time wherein you will write all the useless websites that needs to be blocked by Google. Click on the Exclude Sites button. Then head to the Exclude Sites in Bulk and type in all the domains that needs to be removed by Google. For an easier option, paste all the domains you have in your Blocklist. Be sure to save the changes you’ve made. After that, your Google is now ready and free from spam and useless websites.

If you want, you could also block the sites in your Google Account. There’s a web dashboard that you can manually block the websites.
