Quora appears on Google search results for tons of searches since it has a massive user base, and there are questions about basically every topic inside Quora. If you also dislike the quality of Quora answers, I will show you how to block Quora from Google search results.
The best way to exclude Quora from search results is by using a browser extension explicitly made to block websites from appearing on search engines.

- Right-click on the uBlacklist icon and select Options:
- Under “Sites blocked from appearing in Google search results,” paste the following text:
- Click on save.
