Here’s an interesting URL that I found by following an incoming link a little while ago.
If you run Firefox as your web browser, this “Customizegoogle” add-in allows you to “filter spammy websites from search results”. (It’s got a lot of other features, but this one seems likely to be the most useful to Oracle users).
I’ve got Firefox on my Linux RAC stack – but I may have to download it for my Windows boxes too, especially the laptop which is the machine I use for most of my writing.
Update: And here’s a URL that should let you do the same thing with Internet Explorer, too.
Update 2: A link to the “Oak Table Safe Search” that limits Google to a few sites that tend to give good information. It will miss some good sites and will occasionally provide an indirect link to some less desirable pages – but generally it’s a good starting point.
