Google started with the Chrome extension Personal Blocklist to give Chrome users an option to block results in Google Search.

News posted on the Google Blog a few minutes ago reveal that google will roll out block by domain options to Google Search, first in the US, then in other parts of the world.

You’ve probably had the experience where you’ve clicked a result and it wasn’t quite what you were looking for. Many times you’ll head right back to Google. Perhaps the result just wasn’t quite right, but sometimes you may dislike the site in general, whether it’s offensive, #*$!ographic or of generally low quality.

For times like these, you’ll start seeing a new option to block particular domains from your future search results. Now when you click a result and then return to Google, you’ll find a new link next to “Cached” that reads “Block all example.com results.”

And also, how is one supposed to get the screen to "unblock" a blocked domain? The instructions say to click on manage search results but that option is not appearing for me even if I am signed into my account.
