    I want to turn off completely the website "wikihow.com" from all my searches, forever. This website is just a joke and always pops up.

    I don't want to add phrases like "-wikihow", I just want to never see the website in my Google search results.

    I use Chrome for the most part.


    MacOSX 10.9.3
    Chrome 36.0.1985.125

    Thanks

    Don't think you can do what you're wanting to do, anyways, as far as I know.

    Here is what I do. I use the app Alfred for all my searches. It allows you do define custom searches. I setup a custom search for Google using the string below and it blocks the sites listed from my search.

    You can use the free version of Alfred for this.

    Code:
    http://www.google.com/search?q={query}+-site:ehow.com+-site:answers.yahoo.com+-site:about.com+-site:wikihow.com
    Here is where you setup the custom search in Alfred.

    Here is how the custom search results look in Safari when I search for "alfredapp".
