Today I’m going to show you how to block a website in Google Chrome via┬áthe Personal Blocklist Chrome extension.

1. Install the Personal Blocklist (by Google) Chrome extension.

2. The extension’s icon will appear on your browser toolbar. There are no options for Personal Blocklist, so you can just start searching Google to see it in action.

3. You’ll notice that there is an option to block any result’s source domain in your search results.

4. When you see a domain that you want to block, just click on “Block” right from your Google results.

Click on the 'show' link to display results that have been removed from Google.

5. Immediately, that domain will be removed from your search results. You’ll also see a message at the bottom of your search results letting you know that “some results were removed by the Personal Blocklist Chrome extension.”

Temporarily display search results that have been hidden on Google.

You can click on the “show” link to see what’s being blocked, and the item will temporarily reappear in your results with a pink background.

If you want to unblock a result, you can click on “show” to display it and then click on “Unblock”

Click the button on your toolbar to unblock and edit blocked domains.

6. Alternately, you can click on the browser icon to view all blocked items, and unblock them directly from the pop-up window.

Edit your blocked domains and change them to subdomains.

7. You can also edit domains that are blocked; this lets you change the domain you’re blocking to a subdomain.

There you have it. After learning how to block a website from Google search results, you can do it with ease to whichever websites you choose.
