Google had a powerful feature that allowed you to block all search results from a domain. The feature was quickly removed from the interface, but Google still included it in the search preferences page. Last year, the feature disappeared and it came back after a few weeks, but not everyone could use it.

Now Google officially discontinued Blocked Sites. “To block particular sites from your search results, we recommend the Personal Blocklist Chrome extension from Google. You may also download your existing blocked sites list as a text file.”

Blocked Sites isn’t Google’s first attempt to create a feature that lets you hide results from certain domains, so I’m sure we’ll see other similar features in the future.
