    Is there a way to remove domains from showing up in google results and replaced with another result from the next page with javascript?

    I want to filter out those always irrelevant download sites that always interfere with what you really are looking after.

    Try adding "-site:domain-to-remove" to the search query. Just like you can use "site:" to restrict results to a certain domain, you can put a minus sign before it to filter out results from that domain. For example, "google -site:google.com" will get you search results about google from everywhere except google.com.

    Check out Google's page on search filtering for more info. http://www.google.com/support/websearch/bin/answer.py?answer=136861

    Well, it works, but I was thinking of making a firefox addon to do it, and there is 100's of site I want to filter out, and google got a query size limit so I bet those domains wont fit.
