Google recently began testing a new feature called “Preferred Sites”. The motto behind this experimental feature is that you can tell Google which sites you rely most and want that those sites should be visible in the front pages of your search results.

'The preferred sites feature lets you set your Google Web Search preferences so that your search results match your unique tastes and needs. Fill in the sites you rely on the most, and results from your preferred sites will show up more often when they’re relevant to your search query.'-Google

Preferred Sites

Alex Chitu of the Google System blog has something to say after experimenting with this feature:

'After adding IMDB and New York Times, the results for [how to lose friends and alienate people] were changed dramatically: two pages from nytimes.com were promoted to the top 3 results, but they weren’t in the first 30 results for a regular search.'

To enable this feature, you just need to login with your Google account and turn it on via the preferences page. And if you want to remove this feature, then simply click the Remove link (that is located next to the site's URL ) on the Google Preferences page. Save it!
