Recently we reported about the new experimental feature by Google named 'Preferred Sites.' As it is an experimental feature, it is not available to a majority of people. And if somehow, you notice the preferred site option in your Google search preferences page, that indicates that you are under the test.

Further analysis and discussion by experts and webmasters on its pros and cons are obvious! Threads at Sphinn and WebmasterWorld are discussing about its impact on the SEO world.

Here are some exciting comments:

“Indeed. It would help many of my programing queries if I could remove a certain "obfuscated-exchange" site. I would still want to boost the sites that I know are great (like WebmasterWorld).”

“I wouldn't use this, as it does seem to stifle diversity in the search results. And that's exactly why I hope this feature doesn't catch on.”

Some are negative and some are positive!
