Tired of seeing the same site you never click in your Google search results, time and time again? You can now remove it, thanks to Google’s recently-launched SearchWiki tool. Available only to logged in Google users, you can now bump up a result or remove it entirely.

Of course, the modifications only affect your own future search results. However, others can see your activity, identified by your nickname--this is where the Wiki aspect really shines.
