If you’re tired of sorting through irrelevant Google search results, you’ll really appreciate Google’s new ‘preferred sites’ feature.


As the Google support page explains, “The preferred sites feature lets you set your Google Web Search preferences so that your search results match your unique tastes and needs. Fill in the sites you rely on the most, and results from your preferred sites will show up more often when they’re relevant to your search query.”

The feature is only engaged when you are signed in to your Google account. Only you see the results from your preferred sites-enabled searches and no one else can see your preferences list.

To add or edit your preferred sites list, log into your Google account and click the Preferences link next to the search box on the Google.com page to go to your Preferences page. You can edit your preferred sites at the bottom of the Preferences page.

Leaving nothing to chance, Google’s official instructions remind you, “When you’re done editing your preferred sites, be sure to save your preferences.”

Thereafter, you’ll see a new ‘My preferred site’ lable next to results from thesde sites in your overall Google search results while logged in to Google.
