If you are using firefox, all you need to do is hit the little triangle next to the google search button
and manage search engines index will show up on the bottom. You can choose which ever search engine you
want to use.

I have that sorted a while back but i mean as in popping up in searches at all in google search. I never go to anything that has ask in the url obviously but ..i don't even want the option available smile

Can i not just totally block ask.com so anything related to it is ignored ?

Have you checked your add-ons and plug-ins and disabled ?

Oh yeah, have you asked google how to rid the Ask search from popping up in your google searches.
Some interesting answers come for sure.

Using google chrome here at work and we have no addons/plugins or extension to enable/disable smile

It isn't like i see ask.com all the time , but when i do see it as an option in a search i want to flip my desk biggrin

For instance ..it took until page 3 to see ask.com as an option here..i just don't like it smile

If you use Chrome, you'd might want this:

https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/personal-blocklist-by-goo/nolijncfnkgaikbjbdaogikpmpbdcdef

It does what you want to do.

get something called greasemonkey for firefox or chrome, then search the greasemonkey for a google site blocking script. you'll then be able to disable any site you want.

i have mine set to automatically disable results from groups.google.com - absolutely useless tripe from 1994 - why the hell do i need ancient results when searching for current tech problems. ridiculous google.

Let me guess.... almost beer o'clock but the boss asked you to stay longer and finish something?


There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

If someone wants a no-"phone home" version of Chrome, there is Iron. Just an FYI.
