    It made me think 2 things:
    Does google use this data for manipulating SERPs?
    if it does, there is a substance of abuse in it and it can be used to bring down competitors.

    Why does it only come up on only few sites?


    if anyone of you runs those shitty "downloads" site which have no worthy content this can be serious shit [only if it is used in serp manipulation]

    What are your thoughts? Pardon if I am too late to notice this....

    It seems logical that they would use this in the serps somehow. I doubt it would be a straight automated penalty because it's too easy to game, but if a large number of people flag a site, it probably bumps it up in the queue for a manual review.

    I believe that there's a new Chrome extension that blocks domains in the serps as well.

    Yeah I was also thinking along the same lines... but one thing I am still clueless is how they decide for which website to show that link?
    They sure have an algorithm for this process... and this algorithms might also be "inspired" from other algorithms...

    Yes you are late to notice it :)

    As far as I know, it is only relevant for the user as long as he/she logged-in with their Google account. Try to do this search when you are not logged-in and see if you have this "Block all..."

    Thats ok, but I am thinking if it has some serp influence, maybe someone might have played a lil with it?

    While it is an option for G to use this information, I doubt it that they use it for SERPs.

    This isn't a serious issue in the real world folks. This information is primarilly used by google locally on each users machine via cookies. As mentioned, if logged in, it stores the block in your google profile, but other then that it isn't aggressively utilized by google in any way no matter how many people do it.

    Don't believe me? Go bring down your competitor. :)

    I think they will be using to determine serps. I think it will considered same like bounce rate...

    I'd also like to know whether anyone manipulated it....
