Google now lets you block sites from search results

Google now lets you block sites from search results

Those of you tired of seeing the same useless sites pop up in your Google search results can now stop those sites from appearing.

A new option launched yesterday by the search giant lets you hide specific domains that keep popping up in your search results, preventing them from showing up again.

Depending on the type of searches you run, you may now see a link called “Block all [name of site] results” next to the cached link for certain results. Click on the link, and Google will ask for confirmation on whether you really want to remove that site.

In a blog posted by Google they explained that the links to block a site will appear even if you’re not logged in with your Google account. But you will need to log in to confirm a blocked site.

The next time you search for results that would normally include the newly blocked site, you’ll see a message telling you that those results have been blocked. You can access all of your blocked sites from your Google Search Settings page, allowing you to unblock a site or block new sites directly.

The option just started rolling out yesterday and continues today, so not everyone may see it yet. Blocking sites is supported in Chrome 9 or higher, Internet Explorer 8 or higher, and Firefox 3.5 or higher.

Google sees the new option as a response to sites that you may consider offensive, pornographic, or of low quality. It’s also just the latest effort in the company’s war against content farms. The search giant recently revamped its search algorithm to reward higher-quality sites and lower the rankings of those considered low quality. Google said it’s not currently using the new blocked sites option to influence its search rankings but promises to review the data and see if it could prove useful down the road.

What is Screenjelly?

What is Screenjelly?

Screenjelly is a free service that records your screen activity along with your voice and lets you share it as a video with your friends via Twitter, Facebook or email. It’s the quickest way to show what’s on your screen and get instant feedback. Screenjelly does not require any software download or install. It is 100% browser-based and relies on Java to record your screen activity. That’s why there’s no faster, easier way to share what’s happening on your screen right now. Just press the red button and start recording within seconds. It’s that simple.

Like jelly, knowledge is meant to be spread. But emailing can be a time-consuming and ineffective way to share visual information. Instead of writing out a lengthy tutorial, Screenjelly lets you SHOW how it’s done. Simply press the red button and record the process on your own computer. You can even add a voice explanation. Screenjelly will save your screen recording (and voice) as a flash video, allowing you to quickly and easily share your knowledge.

But Screenjelly can do much, much more. The easy-to-use service also lets you tap into the Twitter community for instant feedback and tips. And it enables everyone—designers, coders or everyday consumers—to quickly share visual information with the world. This is the power of spreading with Screenjelly.

Knotebooks: The text book killer

Knotebooks: The text book killer

Knotebooks are a new way to learn science online. Want to learn about gravity? We’ll show you clear, concise and correct knotebooks so you can understand the concepts.

But what if it doesn’t click? Everyone has a different learning style, right? And only you know how you learn best…

So make that section easier! Or swap that explanation out for a video. Or maybe see how students at MIT or Harvard learn about gravity. Swap out any section in any knotebook with different material, difficulty levels, formats and styles until the explanations are just right for you.

Keep clicking until it clicks, then save that lesson to your favorites and share it with classmates and friends.

What are knotebooks? Knotebooks are what ninjas use to learn science. Knotebooks are textbook killers.
