I cannot stand content farms…

I don’t know about the rest of you out there in cyberspace, but I, for one, have come to the conclusion that Google’s search results are nowhere near as useful as they used to be. My perspective is very straight forward when it comes to the “quality” of search… Do I find what I’m looking for in the top 5 results on the first try of a search. I’m not a search expert. I don’t know, nor do I have any interest in really “knowing” if Google’s search results are really slipping. What I do know is that for me, it feels like search has become noticably less relevant/useful over the course of the last 18 months.

Today Google released what they call the “Personal Blocklist” as a Chorme Extension (download it from here). This tool allows individuals to block specific sites from showing up in Google search results. It’s unfortunate that Google did not provide a way to input a list of sites to be blocked in bulk, but I’m sure someone will augment the Extension in short order.

In the meantime, here is a handy list of sites that I will be search for and blocking ASAP.
