Aiming to improve the quality of search results, the search engine giant Google introduced a new tool that allows the users to block the unwanted websites for the future search results. With the new feature, users can block certain domains, which they feel as less important, pornographic or with low quality, and these websites won't appear in future results.
"You"ve probably had the experience where you"ve clicked a result and it wasn"t quite what you were looking for. Perhaps the result just wasn"t quite right, but sometimes you may dislike the site in general, whether it"s offensive, pornographic or of generally low quality. For times like these, you"ll start seeing a new option to block particular domains from your future search results. Now when you click a result and then return to Google, you"ll find a new link next to “Cached" that reads “Block all example.com results," Google's Search Quality Engineers Amay Champaneria and Beverly Yang wrote Google Blog.
To avail the blocking feature, users have to sign in with Google account before they start searching. Users can also manage their blocked website list. The Google gives a notification if the search results would have contained results from the blacklisted sites.
"The next time you"re searching and a blocked page would have appeared, you"ll see a message telling you results have been blocked, making it easy to manage your personal list of blocked sites. This message will appear at the top or bottom of the results page depending on the relevance of the blocked pages," Google Blog said.
The new feature is currently available on Google.com, but, it will be soon available in all other parts of the world. Google said that the new blocking tool will give the user more control over the results they find will provide an even more personalized and enjoyable experience.
