    how do i block certain websites

    is there a way using .htaccess or some other means that we can block certain websites from appearing when we do a google search of my wife's name? We contacted google and they denied our request to have these websites blocked. My wife has her own website she uses for her business. There was an .htaccess editor website that I visited that created the code after I specified the url of the websites we wanted blocked. Will this work and if so, after creating the .htaccess file what do I do with it, that is where do I attach it/post it? please help. (this is the first time i've ever posted anything on a website. my wife and I are technophobes.)

    Short answer, no. (I take it you mean block certain websites from appearing in anyone's Google search).

    It is your responsibility to die() if necessary….. - PHP Manual

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.

    htaccess has nothing to do with it.

    there's nothing you can do technically; explore other paths.
