    Were searchers actively using the blocked sites feature? I don’t think I used it even once in the past year but that could be just me. Was it just not being utilized enough to justify itself?

    I used it several times. I’m curious Barry, why take the approach of “finally”?

    Never used it personally, nor do I know anyone who did!

    Google’s on a “we’re taking this away,” spree at the moment, huh?

    I have never used it in my whole life and neither I do know anyone who did. I just didn’t see a reason or the added value it could give me.

    I did use it quite a lot and now use the Chrome extension. I find it useful when I’m conducting research on a topic over several days and I want to get rid of sites that keep popping up but are not relevant. When the project is finished I unblock the sites.

    I have used this feature consistently on chrome when researching for things which I use consistently to weed out the irrelevant results.

    I believe it was one of the metrics which Google wanted to test for seo but somehow not many people used it.

    Perhaps Google decided that it was best to discontinue this feature and put the resources into other areas,
