3. Mowing Down Content Farms …Often, when I am researching a topic, I find a number of articles from content farms on the first page of search results. Fortunately, we now have a couple of ways to avoid encountering content farm manure. First, consider using Google’s Domain Blocker. It’s still in development, so some features are still changing. First, you need to be signed in to Google and using the google.com site. In the search results page, if you click on a link and then use the browser BACK button you’ll see a new option for that hit: Block all [domain name] results. If you don’t like what you saw on that page and don’t want that site to show up in any other future search results, click that link. You can also manually block any unwanted domains by going to www.google.com/reviews/t. Another option is to search using Blekko.com, a search engine that features filters (called slash tags) that let you limit your search result. You can create your own filters and you can use the public ones (see www.blekko.com/tag/show?t=3 for the list). Blekko has removed from its index all content from 20 content farms. adapted from, used with permission from Web Search Pacific, www.websearchpacific.com .
