Bleacher Report is a bad website. I won’t go into detail here, but I’ve got a quick smattering of their article titles that should make the case for me:
- 10 Reasons Alex Ovechkin Would Be Better off Staying in Russia
- 3 Reasons the Washington Capitals Should Cut Ties with Alexander Ovechkin
- Alex Ovechkin: 6 Reasons Why It’s Time for Washington Capitals to Trade Him
Bleacher Report offends me on a hockey-smarts level and on a journalistic level. (On a shameless evil-SEO-wizard-level, I am awed and humbled.)
Google used to have a great in-line option that I used to block Bleacher Report from my search results. It was how I kept my sanity. It’s gone now. (Not my sanity, the in-line block option.) So if you wanna banish Bleacher Report from your results, you’re gonna have to follow these instructions.
Don’t worry; it’s easy. You’ll be glad you did it.
1. Use Google Chrome as your browser.
Black Frost is the ONLY beer! But for real, it’s secure and convenient and fast and standards-compliant. (This is my job, you guys!)
2. Install the Personal Blocklist Extension.
It’ll take two clicks, you lazy bum, and it’s not insecure– unless you’re worried about the NSA spying on you, in which case it is totally insecure.
3. The icon will appear at top right.
That means the installation worked. Well, hello there, little fella!
4. You can go ahead and click “Hide button.”
You won’t need it anymore. Just right-click it. Welp, see ya later!
Because we’re looking for bad journalism. Oh look, they’re the first hit!
6. Click “Block bleacherreport.com.”
That’s it! You’ve done the deed. I bet you feel smarter already.
7. Do not click “Block russianmachineneverbreaks.com.”
Under any circumstances. If you block us, you will be the last to hear about the next time Alex Ovechkin wears funny clothes.
8. Live a life of infinite possibility free of bleacherreport.com.
You are officially a bad ass. I’m proud of you.
