Depending on how and what you are searching you may keep seeing websites coming to the top of your search list that you have no interesting is seeing or clicking on. If this is the case, follow along as we show you how to block any website from appearing in your search results. The only catch is that you’ll need a Chromium-based browser, Chrome, Edge, Opera, etc.

As a result, a fantastic little Chrome extension was created that allows you to quickly and easily set up website blocking lists. 

To begin, you’ll to make sure you are using a Chromium-based Internet browser as the extension is strictly Chromium-based, at least for now. Next head on over to the Chrome Web Store and download/add Personal Blocklist (not by Google) to your browser.


Once you have it installed, click the extension icon in the extension area of your browser, then click Import. This will allow you to quickly and easily enter the website you’d like to stop appearing in search results.


After you have entered the website’s details (you can enter as many websites as you’d like) simply click Save and you are good to go.
