Google Engineers try their best to keep such low quality sites away from Google top search result. However, Some sites still appear on search result. To get rid of such sites Google previously came up with Google chrome extension, but Google made it as an official feature last year which is available in Google Preferences. Google allows the option to filter your search result and block such sites from appearing on the search page. When you block any site on your Google account, that site will only be blocked for you on your Google account, you need to be logged in to your Google account to save blocked sites on Google. Depending on how the data collected by Google of all Blocked sites from the other Google account, Google incorporates this information into their next PANDA Updates to keep high quality sites and blog on Search result.

Limitation: As of now, you can block up to only 500 sites.

According to Google, this feature was added to give complete control on the search result and block such low quality sites or sites which you dislike in general like Offensive, pornographic sites. Basically, this effort also paybacks to Google by fighting against such low quality sites and content farms.

      @Truptibhosale06,
