Personal Blocklist (by Google) is an extension for Google Chrome which can block domain(s)/host(s) from appearing in your Google search results. What ever may be reason, I see this extension has the capability in improving work productivity and implementing safe search for children.

How it works: This extension, the personal blocklist will transmit to Google the patterns that you choose to block. When you choose to block or unblock a pattern, the extension will also transmit to Google the URL of the web page on which the blocked or unblocked search results are displayed.
