Google Users Can Block Search Results to Cut Spam

By: Clint Boulton

Google March 10 added another Website blocking tool to let users manage domains they dislike or find offensive, part of the search engine's effort to curb spam on

Google March 10 added a new tool to let users block Websites they don't like when searching on, part of the company's evolving push to give its 1 billion-plus searchers more control over their user experience.
The search engine is now showing an option next to the cached feature in search results to let users block a particular domain in the future.
When a user clicks to hide those results, they'll get a confirmation message saying it will not show results from the domain again.
The next time a user searches and a blocked page would have appeared, users will see a message notifying them that the results have been blocked at the top or bottom of the results page, with location based on the relevance of the blocked pages.............

The new feature is rolling out now on in English for people using Chrome 9+, Internet Explore 8+ and Firefox 3.5+, though Google will be expanding to new regions, languages and browsers.

If a search is typed into Google and clicked on, IE9 will not respond to its back button to return to the search results. Have reset IE9 to defaults, turned it off and restarted it, uninstalled AOL, removed all but Google from search providers, disabled all add-ons.

Google search results in blank window
This is one of those out-of-the-blue things that just started the other day. When I do a Google search, I'll get the first page of results no problem. If I click on any of the search suggestions at the bottom or click to go to the next page of results, the screen goes blank and that's that....

Search results forward to spam sites
I have been having this problem for a few days now and is getting quite annoying. For searches, when I click on a link I am forwarded to a spam site. This is temperamental so I cannot guess when it is or is not going to happen. This is what I have done so far: Un-installed and re-installed...

Star on Google Search Results
I guess I haven't been paying much attention but to the best of my knowledge, I don't remember seeing these stars next to Google Search Results. What are they for? I've searched Google for it but my results point to something Google that I don't use Nevermind
