Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
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.”

Spammers actually can start blocking middle level sites using this plugin to artificially increase their rankings anytime Google starts using this data in their rankings.
"Hey! You don't like your results? Change them yourself! It's not like you're going to use another search engine. We're it, babyface. Why should we work at providing compelling search results? We distribute ads. That's what we get paid for. Could we or Yahoo done this 15 years ago? Heck no, but that was then and this is now. Now is the time for us play with other stuff. Mobile. Video. Whatever. Basic web search is soooo 20th Century."
For a while maybe. But Google would pick it up. If for no other reason than if it worked at first, people would get greedy and start using it to death. They always do.
