See they missed a few, what about *.googlepages.com ?
or Lively ?
or Feedburner ?
or [insert various other Google Services here] ?
Not that this has anything to do with Google, but I'd also like most of my Google searches to omit Wikipedia articles as well. Reason being that if I wanted a wikipedia article, I know exactly where to find it, and normally I don't trust the validity of Wikipedia anyway.
This is just personal preference though. I know many people are probably perfectly happy seeing wiki show up as #1 on every search.
A more elegant solution is to use a custom search engine.
-site:gmail.com is unnecessary
Ionut, how do you exclude URLs with a Google CSE?
How did you implement Spamgoogle? And why?
Maybe Google should put a "-google" & "-wikipedia" setting in its preferences. Or better yet, let users create their own customized "default filter" in Google.
This Timo's work was covered widely here in Finland, pointing to this blog post too
Srry I had no time to post here :-(
The CSE option sounds like the best solution if you wanted a feature like Google Minus Google or whatever you wanted to exclude. This way you can control exactly what sites you want to exclude.

The site is useless because you can't find Google, Gmail, Blogger, Google Earth etc. The intention was to remove the user generated content hosted by Google, right?
He should put up a "google minus wikipedia" tool as well.
